Liked it, didn’t love it. Big fan of everything Calagione does, but this one was fairly non-descript. There are better wits out there, but this one will do the job if it is available.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours hazy yellow with some white head. Very nice and refreshing aroma typical of a good witbier but with a bit of a Dogfish Head twist that separates it from other wheats (I believe it is due to the lemongrass and crystallized orange wedges instead of simply orange peel). Taste is very similar to what is advertised in the aroma. Nice citrus taste with some spices including coriander and of course the wheat flavor. One of the few good sessionable beers you will find from Dogfish Head.

Pours a very light clear golden color with immense white head that grows from the bottom of the glass with a torrent of bubbles fighting the the surface. Smells of honey, grass and citrus. Flavor like many white beers, but the body is a bit creamier. Flavor is fairly light.
