On tap at the Oak Park, IL. Microbrew & Food Review. Served to my fest glass showing a hazed straw color, with a modest layer of white foam, and wavy lacing. The nose was subtle banana, low malt, and just a touch of spice & citrus. Light bodied, good carbonation, with a crisp and lightly dry finish. A decent summer sessionable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden beer out of the tap with a fizzy white head. Light spicy nose with some bitter orange peel. There is a lot of water in this, with bitter orange peel, spice, and an almost sour dough bread taste. Refreshing summer beer.

Sample at 1808 American Bistro. This brew is a hazy yellow-gold color with a medium thin white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of malt, wheat and spice. Light-bodied with flavors of wheat, bready malt and fruit. The finish is wheaty with a spice and citrus aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 8/25/2013. Pours hazy golden straw color with a 1-2 finger foamy white head with decent retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with moderate streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, pear, banana, orange peel, coriander, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, floral, grass, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of malt, spice, and yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, banana, orange peel, coriander, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light bready tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, banana, pear, coriander, clove, wheat, pepper, bread, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance of malt, spice, and yeast flavors; with a good amount of robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy, smooth, and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice witbier. Very nice balance of malt. spice, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very pale cloudy white with a yellow tint, much like the inner pith of lemon. A thick white head fades into a thin white film that is decidedly thicker along the sides of my glass.
Mandarin oranges, lemon wedges. Coriander and grains of paradise. Soft sweet rolls in the back. Restrained.
Soft and chewy – like biting into a freshly baked roll that just came out of the oven a few hours ago. Lemon, mandarin, and curacao. More lemon in the middle with some mandarin oils for a little extra zing. Faint notes of coriander and grains of paradise in my breath. A delicate whisper of sweetness lingers in the chewy bready mouthfeel.
Simply delicious, it is no wonder that the Wahoo Wheat is a summer seasonal from Ballast Point Brewing out of San Diego, California. Albeit a bit more restrained than other Belgian-style Wits, it was nonetheless extremely drinkable and honestly enjoyable, proving that this style doesn’t always have to be a spice bomb.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
To red on draft. Pours a litter copper with a white head that dissipates at a moderate rate. Aroma is floral and sweet. Taste is floral and sweet with a bready yeast note in the finish. Semi-dry. Thought this was a pilsener with some wheat in it. Not nearly hazy enough to be a Belgian Witbier, but whatever.
