look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

On tap at the brew pub.

A: Pours a hazy yellowish orange color witha small white foam head that dissipates to a film. There is ample lacing down the sides as well.

S: The yeast is the most predominant smell present. There is also some light lemon, orange and grapefruit citrus but it is really mild.

T: Starts off with a big gulp of wheat, but it is quickly balanced out by the citrus flavors. In the middle there is some nice amounts of banana. On the back end there is a nice balance between all the fruit and wheat.

M: A nice light bodied beer. Quite clean and refreshing on the palate.

O: When people think of Russian River, a witbier is not the first beer people think of, but this beer should not be under estimated. It is quite tasty and refreshing. Would certainly have this again.
