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.

Butterscotch pour with a nice topper. Fresh APA type hops, with pine, a little lime, and floral scents. The taste is equally attractive - a light, cidery sourness, pine, lime, and some bready tones. This is a superb and unusual wheat ale. The summery name belies its strength and style.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Appearance: The body has a Pale yellow color body and a hazy look. This is topped with a small white head. It fades quickly and only makes a little spoty lacing at the top of the glass. Smell: It has a lot of grassy and floral hops with bready wheat maltiness backing it up. Tast / palate: The flavor starts off with a light bready almost sourdough like maltiness up front and then it brings solid floral and grassy hops with some light unripe pineapple notes. The finish has a good soild hop bitterness. Carbonation and the feel is very lively.

dagimp (859) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2009
On tap at a restaurant on the Hudson River that I canít remember. Pours with 3 fingers of head. The color is a golden, creamy orange/gold. Lots of carbonation. Taste is of orange and lemon. I was surprised how creamy this beer was. It actually seemed more like a Hefe than a Wit. Either way it was smooth and extremely drinkable with a great taste. Excellent beer... if only Captain Lawrence would distribute in PA!

Pours a hazy yellow/orange with a puffy white head. Aromas of citrus hops and wheat. Very nice. Taste is bitter, dry sunshine. Hoppy as all get out. Impressive, actually. Finishes dry and bitter. Wow.

PilsnerPeter (3031) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2008 Tap at Blind Tiger: Pours a very nice cloudy yellow with a substantial and consistent white frothy head. Nice aroma full of coriander and soft lemon citruses. The flavor is good as well, yet itís not as refreshing as I would want my Witbiers to be. Pretty dry, and has evident graininess. Pretty hoppy for a Witbier also, with less citrus depth than expected. Still a very solid and creamy example of the style. Well done.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - JUL 9, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2007 Growler from the brewery. Hazy yellow in color with a big off white head. Aroma is a good start with musty yeast, wheat, and light notes of spices and fruit. Taste follows aroma with some crackery wheat, coriander and orange, and musty yeast. Second batch much more pleasant than the first.

Bottle (12 oz) bought @ RP Beer Emporium. Based on the last rating, this might be from last summer so quite old already.

Appearance: Clear pale golden with a large quickly diminishing but easy to revive white head and some lacing.

Aroma: The fact this light beer is quite olad might not be a problem after even if the aromatic hops are mostly gone because it appears that really nice herbal brettanomyces are taking most of the place now. Combined with light citrusy notes and light spiciness, this is quite interesting.

Taste: The herbal brettanomyces are there too, though they are a lot less powerful. Thereís also citrus, light wheat acidity and mild peppery notes.

Palate: Very light body. Moderate to medium carbonation. Watery mouthfeel. Dry and mildly herbal finish.

Overall: The body is very light so this is like a diluted Orval, but still a diluted Orval is better than 90% of the beers. Amazing drinkability. An old beer supposed to be past his prime that turned out to be quite a fun one.
