Poured into a small chalice: color is hazy straw gold, great dense looking brew; head is brighter white with fine to small bubbles, presenting at least 1/2 inch thick and then dissipating to a thin, solid top.

Smell is quite pleasant - nice breadiness, then some light to moderate spice with clove, banana, maybe some allspice, light floral chamomile.

Taste follows aroma with bread and wheat, light toast, then some yeast and yeast based flavors of spice, clove, banana, light chamomile.

Mouthfeel is moderately carbonated, light lingering sweetness, then a quite sharp dry finish that lingers on the tongue.

Overall a quite good american Witbier with great aroma and flavor but just bit of lingering dry presence.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. best by 7/23/18, so about a month inside the line here.

hazy yellow body with a lot on small floating particulates (unfiltered beer) small head leaves good lacing initially.

pleasing faint aroma of oranges.

a very refreshing drink. orange peel comes through, but not heavily citrus. camomile is faint, and coriander is hard to detect, but the drink doesn't lose much for it.

a little on the thin side on the mouth, slightly watery on the finish.

overall, a nice easy drinking refreshing beer for the summer months. slammable. mild and tasty at the same time.

This beer pours a pale straw with an average head. The aroma is mild and slightly rubbery, with clove, banana bread, orange peel, marzipan, cantaloupe, and a little floral tinge. The flavor starts gentle and sweet, with flavors of lemon curd, clove, coriander, bubblegum, cantaloupe, and a little bit of pencil eraser. The mouthfeel starts very light, then fills out a bit with foamy carbonation. Overall this is an okay white ale, maybe a touch light for my liking.

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy light yellow with a nice white head. The aroma is banana, clove, yeast, biscuits. The flavor has the same with a nice hint of hops. The finish is quite dry and refreshing with a bit of lemon.

Grabbed this in a mix-6 from Binny's. Poured a hazy light gold color with a nearly unnoticeable head. Corriander and bread came through strong on the nose, hints of citrus. Taste followed suit with a crisp spice. Great Lakes never does me wrong.

I quite like this. Standard straw yellow beer, cloudy, good head retention. Bright white colored head.
Aroma and flavors very malt forward, crispy, slightly dry but balanced. Nice bread flavors, yeasty. Also has a spicy note, likely corriander if it is brewed as per style, light citrus notes. Touch of pepper/phenol
Drinkability is high, light, not overwhelming. Carbonation is on the softer end.
Overall an excellent iteration of the style, highly enjoyable, well crafted.

Excellent beer. Tastes just like Cigar City Florida Cracker, which is a stellar wheat beer. Highly recommended this

Draft at Lost & Found. Pale golden pour with small white foamy head. Aroma is light and savory, grassy and spicy. Taste features more of the coriander and pepper on top of a mildly sweet fruity base. Wit straying over into saison territory.
