Pours a hazy yellow with 2 finger head. Nice lacing. Smells fruity. Tastes of bananas and light citrus. Goes down smooth. This is an easy drinking, tasty beer. I could drink this all day if I had the thirst for it.

18 Jan 2013: Alfie's on 9th Ave, New York. Pint from the tap, my first ever beer from Maine (I think). Chalkboard claimed 5.2% ABV.

Cloudy, yellow with a fading white head. Typical for the style.

Sweeter than I expected: however what do I know about American brewed Witbiers (not a lot really)?

The nose was all wheat and corriander with both orange and lemon traces too. These carried on into the taste with the sweeter orange hints along with the wheat taking centre stage.

OK more that great, but a pleasant refreshing beer that went down rather well.
