On draft at Mudville Pub Newport Ri.

Nice straw color with subtle citrus aromas.
Definitely wheat forward, but balanced with some lemon and orange.
Nice carnbination and light mouthfeel.
Great beer on this 90+ day.

Pours a light thin-looking golden color with champagne-like head. Big lace. The smell is umm....like sweaty gym shorts or something. It's like a sweet stank from the sweat. Too bad. This beer had promise. Good citrus and herby spots on the pallet. Really light-bodied. The smell was just too much for me. Other than that, it was a ice, easy-drinking witbier.

Pours a mild yellow, with a one finger white head, minimal lacing. The smell is of malt, corn, lemon, and old banana. Taste is of citrus at first with some undernotes of pepper and corn. Mouth feel is pretty thin, just enough carbonation. Overall decent beer, expect better from dogfish though, wouldn't seek it out again.

Yuck! We purchased a six pack of this. And I know it wasn't a personal preference, this beer was repulsive. I had another person smell and taste my beer and they agreed there was something very wrong with it. To describe the smell and taste would make a sailor blush. The next day we opened two more bottles and one of them was exactly the same. It had a disgusting smell and taste. The other had a hint of the odor but was flat. I don't think I will try it again.

This beer looks pretty sexy with that straw golden haze and lemon/citrus scented head. Who doesn't love some good head?

A belgian leaning witbier for sure, no orange slice please...

The taste is basically that of a witbier, and a good one at that, with just a subtle touch of lemongrass. At first I was worried because I could barely taste it, but the subtle flavor notes become more pronounced and you drink it.
