One of my favorite types of beer, Belgian white, with a distinct lime hint. Absolutely love this brew.

pour is a light golden yellow with a tight white head. The nose has a ton of yeasty spice, light pepper, coriander, light lemon. Not quite as dusty and spicy as the nose, a bit more lemony and sweet. Still, strong balance and not sugary. Dry finish and strong carbonation, lightly champagne esq. The strong zest and yeast characteristic seem to slightly mute the overall flavor but still a nice refreshing beer.

12oz bottle. Hazy yellow-tan with a thin white head. Lemon-lime aroma, quite nice for the style. This is pretty much what all the macro lime beers would love to capture, a really sessionable beer with a faint lime signature. Zesty and quite fresh, this is very refreshing, though it does have a slightly artificial feel to it. Mellow medium body, this is a great Summer session beer.

Has a whiteish/golden color. Smell is of citrus and spice. Taste is a bit tart, citrus, mild spices, refreshing. Overall a solid offering.

I poured a 12oz bottle into a weizen glass. There was no apparent freshness date. I received this while at #BBC13.

Appearance: Pale yellow hue, mostly clear body with consistent bubbles visible. Forms a small, white, soapy head which evaporates and leaves no lacing.

Smell: Standard for the style, although a little milder than most. Clean, refreshing aroma.

Taste: There are more fruity wheat beers than you can shake a stick at, but you donít see too many American breweries experimenting with the witbier style. Though Key West Southernmost Wheat claims to be brewed with actual key lime as well as some other traditional spices and additives, it doesnít really come through in the taste. Thatís forgivable because at the core this is still a pretty tasty, solid witbier.

A light orange flavor seems to be the first thing I notice. A hint of spice is also detectable. Through the middle is more fruity and refreshing taste of lemonade but without any tartness. Just a touch of citrusy bitterness at the apex of the swig, where it then returns as it started with a light juice-like flavor. Coriander and orange peel flavors are noticeable in the aftertaste, but they fade quickly.

Drinkability: Considering the name of this product, thereís already an implication of the beerís drinkability. In fact, I have had this beer in Key West in the extreme heat of July and it was indeed as refreshing as marketed. The mouthfeel is thin and tepid, but extremely smooth , plus the clean aftertaste is ideal. At 5% ABV itís probably a little heavier than it needs to be, since I could see this palette being highly sessionable. Not that any real beer drinker will struggle with back to back servings, though.

Drjohnrock (431) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 12, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2014 Twelve ounce bottle from Whole Foods in Sarasota, Florida. Quite hazy orange/yellow color, assertive bittersweet fruity/yeasty/spicy nose, orange and lime more prominent in the flavor which, while not quite as strong as the aroma advertised, is rather nice: a hot weather beer with some substance. The low overall ratings must be because this isnít a bourbon barrel aged stout. Well, folks, thatís not what itís trying to be. This is my first brew from the Florida Beer Company and it wonít be my last.

Bottle thanks to daknole. Whitish yellow with a smooth hazy body, thin white smooth head. Big lemony citrus and spice aroma. Taste is light tart citrus, lemons and a light spiciness.

On tap @ Florida Beer Co. Pours bright yellow, creamy white head. Huge aroma of fruit loops cereal. Lots of coriander in the nose. Flavor of wheat malt and lime zest. Creamy texture. Very refreshing. Amazing how good a fresh beer will taste.

Bottle from Publix, Sarasota. Pale yellow coloured with a white head. Nose is wheat, slightly spicy, maybe bit of lime. Flavour is wheat, spices, bit of orange, some sweetness. Medium carbonation. Quite refreshing. Finish is sweet and slightly dry. Decent enough.

jbruner (2359) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 17, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2014 Pours a cloudy yellow on tap with frothy white head that holds up. Aroma is light fruitiness with nice spicy yeast esters and a back end of wheat. Taste is more toward the wheat and yeast, but nice balance and nothing overpowering, nice coy sweetness from the lime. Overall, pleasant version of the style, good carbonation, nice beer.
