COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light colored wheat ale might have a hazy appearance, but one thing’s crystal clear: it practically sparkles with bright, citrusy flavor. Enjoy!

Aroma of grapefruit and orange juice. Appears a extra white yellow. Tastes strongly of the grapefruit flavor you might expect from an ipa but with none of the hops. Palate is velvety and refreshing.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5359) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky pale yellow color with a large fluffy yellow-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was tart and tangy citrus, cactus, pine and a bit of pineapple. The flavor was dry, tart and sour lemon, cactus and an underlying astringency. Long dry, tart and sour lemon finish. Medium body. Decent.

nearbeer (4120) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 16, 2014
12 oz. Cloudy, nearly opaque golden-orange body has lots of legs and a huge billowy head. Nose is flowery-spicy grains of paradise, apricot boiled in lightly earthy spices, and a touch of lemon zest. Taste is flowery apricot, white grape perfume, lemon zest, and some lightly spicy wood on the finish. Way overdone with the grains of paradise and orange zest on this one. Light body is too perfume laden to be called balanced, but has enough spicy astringency and an odd wooden bitterness to almost remain drinkable. Medium level of carbonation is nice and mostly smooth, but unfortunately is about the best thing about this beer. I think this might actually sip well with some fish or a spicy food, but is nearly undrinkable by itself.

Refrigerated brown bottle. Taste is grapefruit and crisp hops. Good combination of IPA and Belgian wit.

kramer (5357) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy and cloudy yellow body with a small frothy white head. The nose is an all out assault of coriander with a little orange peel and yeastiness. The flavor is much the same, loads of soapy tasting coriander and not a whole lot else. Light bodied and soft with gentle carbonation. Not the best Wit, they overdid it with the coriander.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained white head, with some lacing, over a hazy, particle laden, yellow (SRM 3) body.....nose is wheat, coriander, allspice from the adjuncts, melon, light citrus peel, especially lemon....taste is slightly sweet with floral honey tones, wheat, coriander, herbal tones, light allspice, finishing with a light dry but lingering bitterness.....mouth feel, light body, minimal astringency, hints of acidity, low carbonation with light tingle. This is a nicely balanced beer, with the exception that the bitter citrus tones are a bit too strong. Also it is too herbal and overall a bit heavy handed. I would reduce the herbal additions, back off on the spices, and try again. BJCP 7/1/13/4/6

Tac (136) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Pours white head, hazy pale yellow color. Aromas of wheat malt and cereal with strong floral and citrus hop notes with some hint of bubble gum. Taste is somewhat sour with quite strong hop bitterness.
