look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

A 12oz bottle with a bottled on date of 6.3.14

A - Yellow with clarity, lots of carbonation bubbles, and a 1/4 inch of head and lace left on the glass

S - Coriander, orange, belgian yeast, and spices

T - Orange peel and coriander are the most dominant, but this Wit has some uniqueness in that it is a bit spicier than a typical wit.

M - Light bodied and medium carbonation

O - A very tasty Wit. Definitely worth a try and great for the summertime!

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. Base of bottle says Filled 05/28/14.

A- Pours a medium golden color with a 1/4 inch white head that doesn't retain long before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and minimal surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind.

S- Lots and lots of lemongrass. So much that it almost blocks out all of the wheat and yeast aroma. Almost has a Pine-Sol smell to it. Not bad, just overdone.

T- Flavor is more yeast forward with the wheat providing a decent backdrop for that and the lemongrass. Slightly rich, mostly fruity.

M- Slightly milky in texture with medium carbonation and a light body.

O- Not bad as far as Highland beers go but, as with most of their other offerings, I can name many other better representations of this style.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass

A: Poured a light hazy gold color with about a finger of white head that settles to a ring with some spotty lacing from start to finish. Not a lot of carbonation to be seen.

S: Smells of citrus and spice... Pretty much on par for a Wit... I'm getting a little orange and coriander with a touch of yeast.

T: I'm getting the orange peel and coriander right up front with a good bit of spice. Aftertaste is a little on the spicy side. Pretty nice.

M: Light bodied, pretty smooth with a crisp feeling.

O: Not so average Wit.... more spice than I was expecting. Well crafted and worth looking for.
