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.

On tap at a restaurant on the Hudson River that I can’t 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.

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 it’s 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.

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.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2008 Tap at Blind Tiger. Very pale straw colour with a surprisingly bright appearance. The aroma is nice and bright with fresh lemony citurs, wheat and a crisp spiciness. Yeast shows light spiciness, with notes of coriander and clove. The coriander imparts a bright lemon citrus and they have managed to get rid of the vegetal character that was here last year. Spicy/herbal hops on the back give this a crisp refreshing bitterness. Much improved and a very tasty summer brew.
