COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As the sun starts to peek out from around the dark winter clouds it is a clear reminder that brighter days lie ahead. Brewed with pale & wheat malts for a refreshing backbone & hopped with some bright citrusy American hops this beer will help you fight off the sun all season long.

Dract at CL. Nothing wrong with this wit. Pours a light yellow hazy body. Some spices, orange peal, other citrus flavors and wheat. No abv or real hop character. not bad.

Disappointed with this brew from Capt. Lawrence although I think the bar didnít do it justice serving this as warm as they did. Wasnít crisp, didnít have much Wit characteristics. I didnít know it was a Wit until I came to RB to add my rating (I wasnít sure what it was when I ordered). Sounds like others had a better experience but I didnít find this to be a beer I would order again.

Draft at BT. Clean and refreshing. Maybe a little bit too carbonated but it was great yesterday when it was 92 degrees here. The spice notes and citrus components were balanced enough for me.

sleepylopes (318) - New York, USA - JUN 2, 2008
um i guess its ok but maybe not my style. just malt and very little hop presence save for the initial touch of citric twinge. the coriander does provide a touch of bitter in this case. more wheat than white.

On tap at the brewery. Strong wheaty nose. Hopy palate although not bitter in any way. Crisp and refreshing. Malty. Realy not to complicated of a beer. A little too one dimensional.

Had on tap at the brewhouse. For a witbier, this was pretty far from being white. I would have classified it as just a wheat ale. It was lightly citric with a full, wheaty nose. Coriander and clove-like spice were also apparent. The flavour was actually crisp and actually refreshing. A nice honey malt backbone balanced out grassy, herbal hops and subtle spice. It was surprisingly medium bodied with gentle, tingly carbonation.

Growler provided by kmweaver. Clear golden body with a small white head. Sweet and fruity nose with corriander and herbal hops. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter with plenty of spicy herbal hops, corriander, honey and dough. Medium body is round with moderate carbonation.

argo0 (11885) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 22, 2008
(growler, thanks kmweaver) Small white head atop clear straw body. Aroma is moderately sweet, honey, banana, some bubblegum, light straw. Taste is medium sweet, malt, some hay -- not a whole lot there. Watery light body, easy drinking.

Growler, courtesy of yobdoog. Thanks, Trevor! Pours a clear, medium-golden color; bright white head with fine-bubbled lacing. Solid, crisp presence of bananas, yellow fruits, and dry cloves in the aroma; pleasant, flawless witbier nose, if singular. Medium mouthfeel: surprisingly bland and a touch watery in the mouthfeel; tasty, certainly, but a significant drop from the aroma; basic sugary maltiness, some bananas and cloves; crisp, with a drying clove note; not a lot there. Medium finish: breadiness, bananas, and some drying cloves and spice.

Draft at the Blind Tiger. Pale yellow pour with a gold hue and a little bit of white head. Aroma is banana, spices, and sweet light belgian malt. Flavor is the same, fruity, with belgian spicing and sweet malt. Dry finish.
