3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ home, picked up in Charlotte. Pours a fairly murky dull yellow appearance with a dull white head. A lot of spicy coriander in the nose. Orange citrus / citrus peel, spicy yeast nose. Kind of soapy / potpourri flavor. A massive amount of coriander in the flavor. Low sweetness and bitterness. Not too great.

12 ounce bottle
Thanks to my partner in the Carolina swap for yet another excellent session beer. A light wit that goes as well on a cold winter afternoon as during a heat wave it proves that bigger is not always better. I look forward seeing what else the area has to offer.
Aroma / Appearance - Active carbonation bubbles in a golden transparent body. Bleached white head appears as if somebody sprinkled a handful of fresh snow on top. Lemon zest, bananas, sweet esters, and crisp dryer sheets perk up the senses after just one whiff. Without going to extremes it has amazing depth.
Flavor / Palate - Honey, lemons, and 7UP tickle the tongue. Soon a wave of dryer sheets rises up before sticking in the throat with a yeasty finale. Light and airy it is almost like a summer day in liquid form. This is one of those nice back deck / porch beers that works all four seasons of the year.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
@ Whole Foods Market / Asheville --- Hazy light golden color with a 2" head that settles to a head cover, bits and streaks of lace. Taste is mild wheat and malt that is infused with citrus and light spices. A little watery as it moves through a lightly bittered finish. Drinkable, but not exactly memorable. Overall, a thin example of the style.

Mine was not hazy at all... Very clear almost like a miller high life. Carbonation was strong. Underwhelming mouthfeel, but a nice orange flavor emerges when you let the beer warm up some. The belgian wit flavor is something you have to search for in this one, not completely apparent. This seems like something to choose if you are on the beach.... like the OBX lol. Nothing offensive, but nothing to like either

Another vacation in the SOBX, another year drinking some NC brews. Bottle poured into pint glass, cloudy golden color with white head. Aroma of yeasty wheat, pale malt, citrus(orange & lemon) and spices (coriander, peppery). Taste is bready, more orange peel, yeasty, some clove and grassy hops. Light body, moderate carbonation, sweet, spicy with dry finish. Pretty good wit I say.

Light golden color. Clear. Some head, disappeared. Lace, barely clinging on. Smell; lemon, malt, hop, spice, coriander, pepper, corn, yeast. Nice. Thin body as it should be. Some bite. Very citrusy, pale earthy, and mild spice. A moderate-good wit beer.
