Followed the instuction on the lable, poured all but 1" of a 12-oz. bottle into a 16-oz, mug. Dated 06/11/18.
Faint smell of yeast and malt, looks like lemonade. Swished and poured the remainder into the mug.
Now it looks like hazy lemonade with an improved finger sized creamy white head with a ring of quickly falling lacing.
Taste starts out semi-sweet and slightly sour then transitions into a semi-sweet and bitter middle.
The finish has a Triscuit-like, bitter wheat kick. Moderately added bitter and citrusy hops linger, but not too long.
The abundance of malt and active carbonation support the mouthfeel, just shy of medium bodied. Clean semi-dry finish.
Easy to drink from being well balanced, the lightly added hops complement the bitterness of the wheat malt.

Beautiful unfiltered look. Very light mouthfeel with a peachy aftertaste.

Great summer drink. Citrusy, a little bite, and pretty spritzy. Looks like champagne. A tiny tart aftertaste. Made for a nice breakfast sip. I would get this again.

Make sure you stir the yeast up if you get it in a bottle, reminder even though it even says to on the bottle.

Appearance : Light hazy yellowish color with a thin foamy head that doesnt last too long.

Aroma : Not as strong as i would like but picked up on faint notes of orange, coriander, wheat and very fruity yeast.

Taste : Crisp and light, not hot at all. Orange, coriander, wheat and fruity esters. The flavor is delicious but not quite strong enough for me to really enjoy, but it allows you to pick out the more subtle flavors since nothing is overpowering. Extremely Easy to drink.

Dated 5/1/18 on the back label of the bottle, brewed just over 2 months ago.

Pours a moderately hazy lemon juice yellow in the glass with a finger of puffy white head that quickly dispersed. Nose of coriander, spicy wheat, nutmeg, orange rind, yeast and earthy undertones. Taste is well blended, I get all of notes of the nose blended together with an increased fruitiness that I didn't catch before. Neither the spices or the malt overpower the rest of the flavors, leading to an incredibly easy drinking brew. At the end of a sip I also get a bit of lemon, slight banana and an ever so slight hoppy note. Medium body with just the right amount of carbonation. No alcohol whatsoever and it drinks so easily I could see myself putting back a 6 pack of this with no effort. Nothing outrageous that stands out and nothing that I can knock this brew for. Straight down the middle, well brewed American Witbier. If you're just getting in to Witbiers, this would be a smooth introduction.
