Lightly hazy, straw-colored ale. Small, creamy, white head.
The nose is peppery and floral with a touch of orange blossom honey.
Nicely balanced, but thin. Some citrus fruit with decent bittering (grapefruit rind). Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, lightly bitter finish.

On-tap at the brewpub. There was a substance to this wit, and a drying peppery corriander taste. A little sweetness and a drop of citrus. But I could not get at the complexity. The turnover is ferocious here, so I do not suspect it’s been about too long.

Sample at the brewpub. Slightly cloudy straw color with a medium white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, wheat and spice. Light-bodied with flavors of sweet spices, fruity yeast and malt. The finish is wheaty with a citrus aftertaste. Decent overall.
