Appearance: Pours a medium straw color with a white head. Only a slight haze, was actually expecting a bit more cloudiness. Free from sediment, not a bad looking wheat.

Smell: Dry wheat aroma all day, grainy, almost musty. Earthy wheat on the nose.

Taste: Crisp wheat flavors and a kiss of hop bitterness. Lemon juice in the aftertaste, Belgian yeast and wheat are put to good use here.

Feel: Light bodied, crisp, but with a long lasting finish that shows a true lemony character and refreshing quality.

Overall: This is a nice little wit, that is light in alcohol but big on flavor. Any fans of this style would certainly take a liking to this fine example.

Very nice wit here, super light and delicate with floral herbaceousness and a light citrus profile. Very pale white wheat base and a fruity dry yeast, very pleasant. Hops here are herbal too, almost grassy green tea, maybe even jasmine or some flower presence. I like how dry it is, and I like that it's not dominated by the yeast. I just wish it was more carbonated, these beers need to effervesce, and it falls flat for me. Still, a very cool take on the style, memorable. Impressed by these guys after very limited exposure.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 7/26/2014. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy bright gold color with a 1 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of lemon, pear, orange peel, light banana, coriander, clove, wheat, oats, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, orange peel, light banana, coriander, clove, wheat, oats, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Slight bready tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, orange peel, light banana, coriander, clove, wheat, oats, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and solid balance of fruity/earthy yeast, spice, and pale malt flavors; a bit too much on the coriander, but it is not at an offensive level. Zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a nice witbier. Good robustness of fruity/earthy yeast, spice, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
