Malty, fruity, dry. Good for a hot summer day, and best served cold. Has a weak wheat body, and lots of fruit flavors. It’s alright.

Cityfresh Associated Supermarket, Bushwick growler: Pours pale yellow murk with white head. Aroma is light banana, citrus, spice. Taste is light wheatiness, with a slight sweetness and a bunch of spiciness. Not a very memorable beer, but what to expect from Kelso.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Called ’Kelso Wit’ at Momofuku Noodle Bar.
Hazy blonde coloured body with a nice two centimetre tall, slightly soapy white head. Aroma of light spice, wheat, yeast, coriander seed, bubble gum and a hit of lemon and other citrus fruits. Medium-bodied; Nice wheat flavour at first with a perfect amount of spices, some mild yeast and banana notes and a bit of a honey sweetness at the end. Aftertaste shows a great balance of wheat, yeast and light spices with a nice sweetness and a cool finish - perfect for a spicy meal. Overall, a nice offering and despite not knowing it came from Heartland - a decent beer for sure. I sampled this pint on draught at Momofuku Noodle Bar in New York (East Village), New York on 13-July-2013 for US$7.00.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at the Fette Sau, Brooklyn, NY. Served in a pickle jar.
Hazy yellow orange colour with small white head.
Unfortunately I couldn’t smell anything since the place smelled like smokehouse. Wheat Ale. Some dryness, some spices and wheat in flavour. Some dry spicyness in aftertaste. Not the worst American Witbier.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at fette sau with ling. Pours a cloudy, hazy yellow body with some white creamy lacing. Aroma is wheat, and lemon zest - similar to a hoegarrden. Mouthfeel is thinner and flavor is a bit watered down with similar notes of lemon zest, yeast and wheat.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very cloudy pale yellow pour with a thick, tight head. The nose is softly lemony and wheaty. There is a bit of coriander, but it seems to have been used with a restrained hand. A little bit of light orange peel and a very unpleasant vegetal flavour. Sort of floury with a bit of light wheatiness. Yeasty and bready. It’s okay but kind of bland. Needed to be boiled a bit more aggressively to blow off some of that DMS. It moderates as you go through the pint, but it’s always there.

tap at Gingerman - light, refreshing. Caramel and peachy. medium bodied and very smooth. lightly hopped and maybe a bit underattenuated.
