Poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass. The appearance is a slightly murky light golden straw color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is light hops with bread. The taste matches the nose.

straight down the middle for me. nice coriander notes with a cloying sweetness. beautiful white color. Little head from the spritzy carbonation. For being only 4.8 - there's a little alcohol heat, and a little tart in the backbone to balance the sweetness. Some banana notes but just barely. Strong lemon zest notes. I could show anybody how to brew this. loads of lemon zest, unmalted wheat, pilsner, and belgian wit yeast. Adding some flaked rice for body an about 2 tsp of crushed coriander per 10 gall. Back to this one. It's decent. FOr me, it's good, but a little too up the middle, a little too 'hot' and a little spritzy for my liking. I'd prefer a little more mouthfeel(they shoulda gone oats and rice or just oats)and perhaps a touch lower abv(of course that heat can be from other stuff too). I can see pounding one or two of these, but then it might become tiresome. Perhaps they could have added more oats, and age this just a bit more to mellow it out even further. jmo.

Can. Hazy yellow. Aroma and flavor is that of a very subdued witbier. Light phenols and coriander. Mostly sweet wheat flavor. Very light bodied and it clears off the palate quickly. Innocuous.

On tap in Atlanta.
Creamy white head over a clear Amber body.
Typical banana and clove aroma, with some wheat. These reappear undiminished in the taste. About equally sweet and tart.

Overall: not a favored style. This one is true to style and about on par with a good German version.

#SB63 take home bottle.

Appearance: Hazy light straw, OK head retention/lacing.

Aroma: Bready with some light citrus fruit notes, and a touch of bubblegum.

Flavor: Similar to the nose with a touch of citric acid tartness. No where near sour or even tart levels, just an interesting refreshing quality.

Mouthfeel: Medium light bodied, refreshing.
