On-tap at Russian River itself, on to the beer:

A soapy head sits on top of this pee yellow colored beer. There some good lace that is sticking around the glass as the beer is consumed. The nose offers sweet lemons and spices, and cream of wheat.

This is delicious. The base of malted wheat provides a good hearty base for the orange peel, cumin, and vague citrus flavors to get attached to. It's very flavorful overall and maintains a very good balance of flavors. It's light bodied with some creaminess and very refreshing.

Just a great witbier. This is a Russian River beer that I'd love to taste in the Southland.
