COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aromas of candy sugar and guava, wheat malt and banana, reminiscent of Juicy Fruit gum on the nose, and leads into a faintly peppery palate with citrus and light tobacco. It has a creamy light body with citrus pith in the finish.

Tmoney99 (11084) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Draft. Poured hazy orange yellow color with a medium fizzy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate yeasty sweet citrus and herbs aroma. Medium body with a tingly smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy citrus sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with an above average beer for style.

shrubber85 (7956) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Bottle. Musty lemon, rock candy and light malt aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Dry, musty lemon peel and wheat malt flavor. Very dry - not bad but not like the average witbier.

DrSilverworm (6962) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2012 20oz imperial pint at the Dilly Deli (met my mother for lunch). Mostly hazy yellow color, nice creamy thin white head. Some bubbles on the side of the glass. Good amount of lace. Nice light fine crisp carbonation, more dry texture, very enjoyable texture. Lemon, belgian yeast, light spices, some banana. A didn’t know what style this was going in, but in my notes I wrote "like a hefe / saison". Sort of a tart, light zesty sweet taste, light spice. Enjoyable. Light and easy to drink, good to enjoy with my burger and fries at the Dilly Deli. Substantially better than Rivertown’s standard wit ale. 7 / 4 / 6 / 4 / 13

Re-rate, 7/13/12: 12oz bottle. Hazy apricot color. Good thin white head. Dry texture, little loose lace. Good aroma, coriander, clove, banana, citrus peel. Zesty sweet taste. Carbonation is a little strong, but has a nice soft texture. Was much smoother on tap, but still worthy of being a regular offering from Rivertown

phaleslu (6836) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Draft at YardHouse. Pours a hazed pale gold with a small white cap. Looks the part. The smell is wheaty and doughy, with some banana, citrus, and bubblegum. Flavor of wheat, banana, peppery spice, citrus, bubblegum, and soap. The soap started in the middle and muddied the finish. Light-bodied, with a very dry mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. The wheaty, dry mouthfeel is pretty spot-on for the style. It wasn’t bad but was off in a couple ways.

b3shine (5840) - Indiana, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Draft to pilsner at Dilly Deli. Looks good; a hazy gold with nice carbonation and lacing. Smells pretty good; like a sweet and spicy Belgian. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Pretty good!

PorterPounder (5707) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl. - ABC Fine wine & Spirits - Bull Run - 12 oz bottle. Hazy, light orange appearance, soft, snow white head. Aroma has some light sour notes with a hint of brown sugar. Flavor has some bubble gum sweetness, a bit of citrusy, lemon sourness, some yeasty notes. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Did not feel like I was in Belgium while drinking this one.

JaBier (5011) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Bottle purchased at Kroger on Polaris Parkway. Clear gold pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is a bit funky with sweet malt and some citrus. Malty flavor with banana and orange character before a crisp finish.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 22, 2013
12oz bottle. Unfiltered orange-yellow, thin white head. While not completely lacking carbonation, this is still relatively flat. Big wheat flavors coupled with a fruity belgian yeast. The lack of carbonation really brings down what would be quite an enjoyable beer. Sweet golden malt, pleasant medium body. Tasty, but there seems to be issues on the bottling line.

Aurelius (4376) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Foggy, peach-gold with a thin white head. Bad, plasticky label on a squat 12oz bottle. Sort of a wit-like aroma - orange/citrus, zesty malt, some spice, light vanilla sweetness, some tang. Effervescent, with vanilla cakey and sour citrus themes. Body is lightish and the mouthfeel is fizzy. Bitterness kicks in on the back corners of the tongue and in the finish. Finishes out with kumquat impressions. ABC, Bull Run.

cheap (4207) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Very nice pour. Big head on a vanilla looking hazy brew. Smell is typical white beer with a hint of hops perhaps. Lots of good sizzle in this, yummy. Does have a genric bitterness that builds during the session but overall, except for that back of throat bitterness, its not too bad of a beer.
