3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(600) Growler pour. Pours hazy yellow with white head, rimming. Nose of orange and coriander, yeasty notes and grain. Taste is a grainy wheat with bitter and stringency, slight citrus and spicy notes, but are diminished. Didn’t hold up too well in the growler, and it’s less than a week old. Still pretty tasty and quaffable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from growler at IBC. Pours a pale straw yellow with a slight nectarine flesh tint. The head is frothy and white and leaves some nice lacing. Aroma has some sweet bubblegum with some peppery and grassy citrus. A little spicy herb too. Flavor is sort of grainy, but has a nice bitter / sweet balance. A lot of fruit with what is almost apricot in the finish. Very drinkable.

Hazy light yellow pour with aroma of cloves, spices, orange zest, and some hopcit. Tastes and finishes dry, with a strong orangy zest coupled with cloves and dry spices. If you like wits, you’ll like this.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The spicier type of Belgian wit, with herbal grasses and peppery notes. Bitter citrus oil, funky barnyard tang, and just a bit of Band-aid. Cloudy milky yellow-amber. with thin lacing off-white head. Medium bodied with light-medium carbonation. Starts spicy and bitter, with a lot of yeasty chalkiness. Light citrus and banyard funk, but predominant taste is bitter herbal hops. This is not a Hoegaarden type of wit, much more bitter. Still, it’s high quality, refreshing, and comparable to many farmhouse wits I’ve had.
