The wheat beer beneath fades into the background, making this essentially a decent green tea with an absolutely hidden 9+ ABV in there somewhere. Interesting, and always fun to try new takes on beer. Overall, much more of a tea or light energy drink vibe than beer... but how do they hide the alcohol so well?

16 oz. can thanks to Skyview. Massively over carbonated can. Had to pour slowly and often over the course of minutes to let the head die down, to fill a 12 oz. glass. Aroma has Belgian yeast and indeed an herbal ice tea note.
This flavor is insane! Green tea and honey mixed with light, fresh Wit beer base. It has spice in the finish that reminds me of something oriental. Floral hops. The tea that is infused in this beer is off the chart, really interesting. Lighter body with a grainy mouthfeel. I was stunned to read this is over 9%, never would have guessed.
Overall I really enjoy the craftsmanship and it truly is a different interpretation of the style, creative. Worth a try if you are looking for something different.

Tap at Dublin’s. Palest of amber pour. Nose is syrupy wheat malt andlight yeast with spicy, floral tea/cinnamon. Flavor is thick, sweet wheat and more of the corriander/cinnamon/floral tea flavors. Thick, syrupy body. Slick. Interesting.

Can. Clear rich orange pour with a small head. Wheat, a touch syrupy, and dry tea finish. Interesting for sure, but just okay for me.

Can. Had one last night, remember it being awesome, trying another today. Hazed golden pour, creamy white head that sticks for awhile. SMell is honey, cereal, caramel, and aromatic tea. The flavor is real nice, sort of a gingery bready but not ginger type taste, medium bitterness, lush mouthfeel, some vanilla, spices, citrus, coriander and wheat. It finishes nice and dry. Very tasty concoction.

Tasted from a pint can. It poured a cloudy golden amber with a frothy white head and spotty lacing. Pungent banana aroma. You gotta like tea to enjoy this one. A high octane Belgian White.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy light orange with medium white head reducing to a small thick creamy lasting topping. Aroma quite ’thick’ ; of course very herbal, tea, floral, wheat, spices, very sweet as well- quite alot going on. Flavor follows suit. Medium body. Almost syrupy. Creamy. Fair bitterness. Flavor is a bit more balanced than the aroma. Much better in a weizen glass than from the can. Better than the first time I had it and quite a bit better than I expected. Provided a nice kick on a warm summer day at the beach.

Sampled at esbls. Golden and a bit dingy. Minimal head. Na bit of tea is smelled. Tea is tasted with honey. Hops come in late and bring mild bitterness. A unique brew and an interesting one. Alcohol is not tasted.

Draft at Sugar Maple. Super light-colored beer. My initial impression is of a more banana-influence, German-style wheat. But it drinks with a super smooth character, and the tea in this serves to smooth out the rougher edges. Interesting, different, quite drinkable. (#5161, 7/6/2013)
