Cloudy, yellow, small white head with a musty yeast smell. Taste is light lemony notes and musty belgian yeast along with some wheat. The smells of these types of beer remind me of trash. So so drinkability for this beer but I opted to dump and move on to the next one as it just isn't my speed.

Bottle best by 10/15/11

P: Poured a light golden pineapple juice appearance with no head. Good amount of bubbles but docile for the most part.

S: Wheat, yeast, Taft mild citrus with small amount of spice.

T/M: Nice carbonation, mild bitterness, citrus and dirty wheat. Tastes like watered down grapefruit juice with a lingering b-vitamin aftertaste.

O: Not a fan! I was excited to try this since I loved the Two Jokers, but odiously this one has it's flaws. I will try a fresh bottle next time to get a fair evaluation.

Got this in a custom 6-pack from World Market.
Poured from a bottle into a chalice.

A - Hazy yellow, like freshly squeezed lemon juice.

S - A hint of orange, but nothing else.

T - Very light taste, maybe some citrus flavor, but not much.

M - Carbonated and easy to drink with little to no aftertaste.

Summary - Not very good overall. It's really not much of a beer. It's too light and flavorless to be a Witbier. I'm not getting this one again. Glad I didn't get a 6-pack.
