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.

Cloudy lemon yellow with a small head. It has a mild aroma with some lemon and earthy notes. It has some citrus, wheat and some spices that blend well.

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.

Great aroma of bananas and cloves right off the top. Pours a nice golden, with minimal head and good cloudiness. Nice light mouthfeel, hints of cloves and bananas on the backend. All in all Iíll give it a rating of four. Itís a solid wheat beer but gets extra points for itís value. I paid $4 for a 22oz bomber.

On draft at Good Beer. This cloudy, unfiltered wheat looks like grapefruit juice. It is very sweet and malty, and seems to straddle the line between wits and weizens. Neutral aroma with a bit of tang. This is off the beaten track for sure, in a good way.

Appearance is small white head with a hazy yellow. Aroma is spicy citrus. Taste is heavier on the wheat and spice, but with a hint of citrus. Overall a good example of the style.

Bomber bought at GBBF 2011 and consumed at home on my last day of my summer holiday, along with a sausage, mayo and cucumber sub I just made myself. The beer is a cloudy pale gold with a lasting white head. Soapy citrus lemon aroma gives a hint that this may be a Belgian wit style wheat beer. And indeed it is a Belgian wit. Fine, ok. Not a bad beer, not overly soapy, but maybe not as much orange peel and spice as I like. Still no off flavours and full enough in the mouth not to leave that horrible cardboard flavour you sometimes get. So in style its pretty good. As a beer? Fine.

22 oz bottle purchased at Lukas in Overland Park, Kansas. Pour is a whitish yellow, cloudy, with a crackling one inch head that falls loosely and quick. Aroma is lemon citrus, grain wheat, and a very mild yeasty clove spice. The taste follows the nose, primarily focused on the wheat with the lemon citrus. The clove is evident briefly in the clean and crisp finish, drying things out a bit. The palate is medium bodied, pleasant unfiltered mouth feel, nice soft natural carbonation. Overall, nice wheat beer.
