look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A- Pours a hazy golden orange color with a thin white head. Head had ok retention and leaves spotty lacing at best.

S- Huge amounts of coridaner and spice. A bit of lemons, oranges and bananas.

T- Follows the nose pretty well but a lot stronger in spice. A touch of yeast is here too. Almost too spicy.

M- Lighter side of body and higher carbonation.

O- At least it came in a pretty cool glass. Other than that I'd pass on this one. Too much spice.

served on tap at winking lizard independence ohio

Maybe because we were on vacation and it was summer, and I have been drinking alot of wit beers lately, but i really enjoyed this beer

A- had a diluted cloudy look to it with a nice head

S- spices anda mixture of orange citrus and a subtle sweetness

T- The more I drank this beer the more spices I seemed to come across. The orange taste that was there seemed to be a little sweeter like it was a blood orange or clementine.

M- great carbonation, very refreshing and smooth with a nice amount of tartness

O- A really good witbier with a great taste from beginning to end.
