Pour out of 22 oz bottle, thanks for the pour Aaron! Nice hazy yellowish pour with thin white head, aroma brings notes of slight funk, big lemon, touch of bready malt, hints of spice and coriander in there as well. Taste is a bit sweet, with a nice mix of sweet lemon and fruity esters, some coriander and bready notes but in general a pretty nice mix of flavors. Ends a bit sweet.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is wheat grain and a subtle spiciness. The flavor is lemon/citrus, a mild tartness and a good malty undertone. Very subtle in flavor, nothing was too strong but blended very well in the flavor.

Tasted like pretty plain beer to me....not much of anything floral or distinguishing. No real yeastyness. Very thin, finishes clean, but nothing much to it.

finally, some american breweries are starting to figure how to make actual wit beers, and are doing away with the watery bland american wheats that dominated the style over the last few years. this one is pretty dead on, more or less or Hoegaarten clone. really well done, especially for a brewery ive never really been that impressed with.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From an old bomber. Pour is simply very good looking with its foaming sparkling brew and rocky head. Clean wheaty in appearance. Lots of gunk on the bottom of this bottle. Lots of good sizzling carbonation on the palate, just like the appearance predicts. In the taste, I suspect there is some orange in there, more so than most wheats Iíve tasted. On the second refill this stuff has a swirling sediment hypnotizing look in the glass. Taste seems to be more than 4% but it never really gets too rude. I wonder why Iíve never tasted this before, it is pretty friendly. Perhaps it was the cost, but on the clearance rack I found this fer $4. Nice picture for a label, interesting. I almost want to say this has a palate like one of my faves; orval! However, I just canít bring myself to say it. Overall, this was just a simple pleasurable beer drinken experience.

Poured a hazy yellow color with a white head. Aromas of wheat, orange, coriander, and a touch of spice. Flavor is much the same with a light sweet aftertaste.
