2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the brewery. Tasted during trip to California. Unclear golden colour, with a weak head. Taste more than a American wheat than a Belgian. Very common in taste an aroma. Overall nothing speciel at all.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at The Turquoise. This was quite a let down. First I had to fish out the lemon. My fault, I should have been paying attention. The aromas were a little lemony, but mostly it was a smell I did not recognize, maybe some sort of yeasty wheat? I just don’t know, followed by a similar taste with a sour aftertaste. Definitely at the bottom of MY Ballast Point list.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
All I really have to say about this beer is that it tastes exactly like a worthers original, only with booze added. better then a bud, but nothing really worthwhile.

this has that slightly sour Belgian flavor that most American Belgian Wits do not have, excellent, very fresh on draft at the brewery
