3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Ale Arsenal. Subtle lemon and biscuit aroma with grassy undertones. Pours a hazy light yellow with a white head if minuscule bubbles leaving slight trails on the glass and a collar of head. Taste is refreshing with lemon, slight lime, and light cracker malt. Slight bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel makes this a perfect beer for a warm early summer day. Would pair nicely with grilled citrus shrimp.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle KW4838. Best by 04/2013.
Pours a pale, hazy gold topped with an enormous mound of fine white bubbles. Pretty much spot on for the style. Clumps of bubbles cling to the walls of the glass.
It mostly smells of clean, doughy wheat. I think thereís some spicing, coriander and orange or lemon peel, in the mix, but itís pretty far in the background. Lightly grassy hops. Thereís a hint of funk and cleanly earthy yeast. A touch of band-aid. Itís just an awfully light aroma. Very clean and subtle for the style.
The taste is similarly clean. Itís mildly dry. Thereís still a fresh, sweet wheat flavor, but it sits lightly on the palate and doesnít linger. Some earthy funk from the yeast, particularly in the finish. More citrus and coriander. Apples, apricots, green grapes. Tasty.
Light, pleasant mouthfeel. I enjoy the even drier wits, like Anchorage Whiteout, but this is just a very nice beer to drink. It goes down smoothly. Carbonation is fine, plentiful and gentle.
This is a nice witbier. Itís well made and drinkable. Judging by other reviews, it seems that the spicing isnít quite dialed in. I like this milder version, though. It comes off rather saison-like, which as someone who prefers saisons to wits, I donít mind. Anywho, itís a good beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle - Hazy golden pour with a soapy, filmy white head. Nose is stone fruit, pear, coriander, subtle citrus peel, and a bit of tart funk. Mmm...very pungent and fresh nose. The taste is equally as good. It has a light gueuze funk to it with subtle spiciness, fruity, dry malt, and a touch of stale, herbal hops on the finish. Fluffy body, thin and bubbly with ample carbonation. Tastes like a saison/gueuze/wit hybrid. Glorious.
