Drank from a glass.

Aroma: Citrus with a little bit of spice – almost a floral scent.

Appearance: Light Amber with a bit of a haze.

Taste: Starts with a sweet fruit flavor (maybe banana and orange) with smooth start with typical characteristics of a wheat beer (orange, some spice flavors). Taste a little bit of the hops (“spice-like” and a little earthy) with again, a citrusy hint to it. The banana continues to come through and some pear comes through in the end.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, carbonated well, almost a creamy/buttery mouthfeel.

Overall: So far, this is my favorite of the light “summer brews” I’ve tried this year. Really is a combination of a blanche and wheat beer. Would have again – especially out on the deck on a summer night. Crisp and refreshing with a nice aftertaste of banana and a little bit of pineapple.

Pours from a bottle into a pint glass. Mix a six pick up.

Pours hazy dirty blonde with some white foam, mostly burns off. Wheaty nose, some orange. Wit beer taste with some orange/coriander notes. Grains of paradise taste. Lemon too. Good mixture, not great.

Cloudy lemon yellow. Rising bubbles are sparse, but still visible in the light. Has a really nice glow to it. The head didn't stick around for long. I have here just a ring with surface glaze.

Lots of coriander and orange peel in the nose. I can pick up mild wheatiness and hints of star anise spice. Not particularly peppery. More orange than lemon. Vibrant yeast characters. Bountiful spice notes. A loud nose for a witbier.

Spicy, but not overly so. In other words, it doesn't reach an offensive magnitude. Star anise, grains of paradise, dried citrus peel, and coriander. Wheaty and tangy with some finishing sweetness. A little too much to finish off with. Lingering, not clean. Some non-citrus fruitiness is present (apricot, white cherry). Spiced like a Christmas beer, drinkable like a summer ale.

Nice and filling for a wit. Big mouthful of soppy medium-bodied liquid. Has that girth that you might not expect. The spiciness adds to the feel, giving it flight. Carbonation is almost medium. Still nice and airy.

A decent wit. Not sure that I recall seeing this before. I may not seek it out again, but, you never know. Maybe I will.

A: Pours a cloudy light straw color with a fluffy white head

S: Some spice, some citrus, some floral qualities, but nothing mindblowing

T: Some spice up front, followed by a mild sweetness and crisp bite of a little citrus, and a slightly jasmine-like finish. Nothing special, but not bad either

O: A nice, easy drinking thirst quencher. Though nothing special, it's an enjoyable brew, and at only 4.5%, you could pound these all day long
