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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a pale yellow with a one finger white head with a little lacing. Aroma is of lemon zest, sour fruits, belgian yeast, wheat bread, pepper, spicy grassy hops, and some spices. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with a notes of lemon, pepper, spices, wheat bread, grassy hops, and some mild brett. Has a medium-light body with a creamy mouthfeel and a dry, slightly bitter, medium, refreshing finish. Overall, a excellent witbier that is very refreshing and drinkable, and is pretty complex for the style.

Bottle. Pours yellow with a big frothy to creamy head that shrinks to a thin ring and good lace. aroma of coriander, citrus and pine. Lightly sweet before turning lightly sour with no bitterness to be found. Light to medium body with way too much carbonation. I let it sit for 30 minutes and the carbonation diminished to a more manageable level. Flavors of sour citrus and light honey. Very drinkable and interesting.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle. Aroma consists of dusty old bretty basements, lemon peel, coriander, cotton candy. Pours a pale pale yellow with a large white soapy head with great retention. Taste starts out lightly sweet before turning sour (6/10 on a sour scale) and acidic, finishing dry. Mouthfeel is a bit too carbonated for me--it’s a lot like champagne, one of my least favorite alcoholic drinks. Flavor and aroma are great, though. This would be fantastic if it was more finely carbonated--as such, it’s merely good.
