3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at RBY. In a tall wheat glass, it shows the cloudy yellow color of a witbier. Thin white head on top. Smell has lemony notes and an estery Belgian ale smell. Taste is indeed a wit with lemon to the fore.However,I also get an impression of tire rubber. Might be the peel, might some sulfur in the yeast that I donít usually ever pick up, but hey, itís been another crazily bad day. Still some unique spices here, still likable, and Iíll try this again next time.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap and 12oz. stemware/chalice served at RB-Yorktown, with a hazed, straw color, modest, white, grainy/small bubbled head foam, and spots and streaks of lacing. The nose was lightly sweet, with a little grain, light lemon and floral notes, vanilla, spice, and also a slight hint of banana. Ditto on the flavor, with good complexity, with a light to medium body, quaffability, but also a sneaky alcohol presence, and pleasantly dry finish.
