12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a hazed, yellow-gold body with an inch of slowly-receding white froth and some suspended sediment noted.

Smell: A little finely-ground pepper, a little coriander and a welcome dose of fresh orange rind atop the base of lightly toasted malted wheat.

Taste: An opening of sweetish, honeyish wheat malt followed fast by a big burst of orangey citrusy fruitiness. A little tangy. Pinch of earthy coriander. The orange flavor and most of the initial sweetness carry you through the altogether crisp finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-high carbonation for a lively, active mouthfeel.

Overall: RJ's WT is a crisp, easy-drinking, welcome wit.

Don't know if I got an old batch or not but this beer was just not my cup of tea.

Poured an light orange gold color with a thick white head that lasts a good while and leaves some lacing behind. Smells of wheat, citrus, hints of banana and hops. Starts out surprisingly tart with citrus then turns into yeast and some malt flavor. Feel is light and crisp with some carbonation that leaves a little behind. Overall pretty good beer that is a bit different then typical witbiers.

This brew is a little of an anomaly. It is really good, but not what I think of as accurate of the style - it is a little twisted, and that works for me. I was in the mood for one of these (I am going to follow it with a Duvel).

It looks nice and yellow with a laceless little fizz of a head. The aroma is complex and nice - yeasty,as it should be, for sure, but lots of other things in there too.

The taste is unexpected (unless you read the label). It is pretty malty for the style. Malty tasting, but actually there isn't much alcohol to show for it. All this imparts an easy drinking creamy finish, with some yeasty tartness mixed with fruit and things (way down).

It is a tasty brew, but if you were expecting a crisp refreshing wit, this isn't it. Recommended as a light beer that is not light on great taste.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light yellow color, with a large white head that fades slowly and leaves a spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains wheat, bananas, citrus, light caramelized malts and touches of Belgian yeast and hops.

T: The taste starts out with flavors of tart citrus and mild spices followed by some breadiness from Belgian yeast, wheat and a hearty but not too heavy malt character. The hops presence is mild as it should be but there isn’t much balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly tart.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, light-to-medium body, medium-to-high carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, just a mediocre beer overall and there are certainly a lot of other beers in the style that are better.
