3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
1/2 pint on tap. Bright yellow color, cloudy, decent head with good lacing, appetizing. Sour-sweet smell, more sour than sweet. Great taste, a little bit of coriander, the right amount of bitter, and a little bit sweet. Still leaves you hanging on for a bit more taste, disappoints. Kind of an oily mouthfeel as well, which is unexpected. I think it’s average for an american witbier.

Watch out for this brewery..................this beer is great, just filled a growler today..... its a cross between a good Belgian and possibly a good Hefe. I think its my wife’s new favorite. They also have a great IPA and Saison!!! I sound like im advertising for them but I seriously love their beers. Unfortunately, I live about an hour and a half away and cant enjoy all of their stuff as often as I would like.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A vigorous pour from the growler into my Bruery tulip produces a three-finger thick, almost perfectly white head that leaves some nice lacing patterns on the sides of my glass. The beer is a pale, straw color that shows a brighter and hazier version of the same when held up to the light. The aroma is a mix of savory, grain like, herbal and definitively citrus like. A grassy, straw-like note from the grain melds with an earthy spiciness and this all anchors a bright lime zest character. This almost has a dirty spiciness to it, but in a good way, that must be influenced by the cumin character. I like that the cumin is not overtly noticeable in the nose. There is a slightly musty, phenolic character to the aroma as well as a spicy, almost green pepper like hint to the aroma.
This has a spritzy carbonation, which accentuates a dry peppery note; there is also a light tartness to this beer that is just barely there. This has a certain savory quality to it, this melds in with the cracker like grain notes, the earthy coriander, and a sort of woody herbal character; this must be contributed by the cumin, and while it profoundly influences the character of this beer, it manages to not be overtly noticeable. This has a chewy body, at least for a Wit, as this is still quite a light quaffable beer. Interesting that this has such a peppery, almost chile like spiciness to it, though it isn’t hot; since I don’t think there is actually peppers added to this, it seems to be contributed by some spicy, higher alcohols.
This has an interesting hotness to it; it seems like this is due to higher alcohols, though it isn’t really harsh in character. Good in the end, but certainly on the interesting side, I wonder if it got a bit warm, or there is just some weird spice / fermentation character interaction going on here.
