On tap at the House of Brews in Jensen Beach, Florida.

Appearance. Clear golden body with a decent white head.

This wheat beer has notes of banana and spices mixed with wheat bread. Mild body but rather high, prickly carbonation.

11.2 oz bottle into a Becher glass.
L: SRM 2 Pours rich 1/2 hazed dent corn yellow gold with light steady carbonation, a thin white head that recedes to edge skin, no lacing.
S: Distant traditional Wit spices, gently fruity, pastries, orange.
T: Fruity, orange, sweet juicy lemon, lemon zest, wheat, light yeast, gently rich & lemony, spices are light, has a long zesty linger.
F: Slightly flat, soft, round, smooth semi-juicy medium to medium-light bodied feel that has a medium-short length moderately drying finish.
O: This is an Ale-like Wit. It has very nice attributes from both beers. Delicious tasting with a trad Wit feel. It is quite easy drinking and is very well balanced. It is excellent in its style.

335oml can into a half pint mug. Coding no help in determining age.

Initially hazy dark yellow with a massive white head. Later pours add a ton of white floaties which seem to kill off the carbonation. Aroma on the musty side.

Taste better than expected though. Sharp, citrusy, orange, slightly sweet. Finish begins to dry out, leaving a fresh orange flavor on the palate.

Not my style. I am not sure why it gets such a high rating. I got it a while ago in a fancy sushi restaurant. It's mediocre, light and nothing special.
Taste: a unpleasant combination of orange flavor and sweetness. And it somehow tastes like rice wine.

Straw yellow in color with a half inch of off white on top and with a somewhat hazy complexion. The aroma is of pale wheat and faint coriander. I’m tasting a blend of pale wheat and coriander. The mouth is light, crisp, and smooth.
