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.

Draught at Fette Sau in Brooklyn. Golden, orange-tinted pour, not super cloudy. Wheat, lots of citrus, curacao, coriander? A bit cloyingly sweet/fruity. Thin palate. Good summer beer, for sure, but too sweet to be a sessionable one for me.

Draft at Pacific Standard. Ok but had a nasty undertone. Gold spice etc.

@ the brewery. Out of all that I sampled this was my least favorite, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t like it. Cloudy gold body with white fizz. Main flavors of spice with soap undertones. Aight.

draft @ kisco holiday inn - hazy yellow with aromas of spice, citrus and wheat; mild tartness, but generally a smooth, tasty summer ale

Sunny golden body with a three finger tapped white head. Sure, I note the citrus and light spice, all very subtle. A real fine summer white beer.

beerbill (3574) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUL 16, 2008
Growler filled at Superstar Beverage in Huntington. Pours a clear gold with a thin-moderate white head that lasted through the first third of the glass. Pleasant aroma of wheat, coriander, and orange. The flavor is equally good with again wheat, coriander and orange. Medium bodied. A refreshing, solid wit.

blklab2007 (2099) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 14, 2008
draft from the brewery has a light straw color with some light sediment suspended. aroma is wheat, light spices, floral, and faint citrus. flavor is good but again more wheat beer than anything else, spice, citrus zest, but seems a little grainy. an easy to put down summer beer.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUN 12, 2008
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.
