COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bright yellow in color and quite cloudy, ABV 5.5%. This beer is based on the Belgian Wit style. Subtle flavors of orange come from the addition of bitter orange peels into the brew. Easy drinking summer beer, this one will be gone when the Tigers win the World Series, or mid September if they are not going, which they will.

As the description says, it is as self advertised, but really nothing special. One of these is more than enough for me, although it is enjoyable, with so many other better choices, I wont be going back to it.

Pailhead (5097) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 15, 2008
On tap: The aroma is a combination of orange peel, lemon grass, and light grassiness. It’s a hazy gold with a small white head that leaves behind spotty lacing. The flavor starts with some watery wit notes behind moderate lemon grass. There is some faint banana and citrus notes. The finish is grassy with some lighter notes of lemon. Light bodied with soft carbonation. I was really in the mood for a Witbier, but this was quite a let down.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Tap: transparent dark golden in color, minimal head. Aroma is dominated by american wheat sweetness. Flavor much the same, doesnt resemble a wit at all. Asked for an another sample, just to check. So either its the wrong keg, or, just not a good wit.

Tap. Light yellow color, fairly clear. Decent head, whitish in color. Coriander is very apparent in aroma. Spices and light malt in taste. Rather thin.
