Bottle drank at Good Luck in Rochester, NY.

Pours a hazy golden yellow, with a half inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like orange, lemon, spices and yeast.

This is one of my favorite Wits I've ever tried- because they toned down the spices and yeast flavors (still there, but more subtle) and ramped up the delicate orange peel and lemon zest flavors. There's also some grassy hop flavor, wheat bitterness, fruity yeast esters, and spicing I can't distinguish. Very delicious, and goes down quite easily.

Light bodied, crisp at the front, slightly creamy at the back of each sip. Medium amount of carbonation, with the tiniest of carbonation bites.

Wit is far from one of my favorite styles, but this is probably my favorite of the style that I've tried.
