Yum...this was quite a good wit beer, one of the best I've had.

Beer served on draft at the brewpub. Beer is yellow to white and pretty hazy with a nice head that settles quickly to a mono-layer of bubbles that breaks and barely covers the top of the beer. Minimal lacing on the glass and carbonation is moderate. May be a little under carbonated for the style.

Aroma is like lemon grass with mild spice, some graininess from the wheat and some yeast character. Smells quite nice.

Its probably slightly too cold to drink but the beer is light in body to medium in body and effervescent in the mouth. Its spicy but not overpowering, clean and finishes a little dry. Overall its a great tasting wit, it balances the yeast character with the midpalate fruit and spice and doesn't linger.
