Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a lightly hazed yellowish amber color with a one finger head of fizzy looking white foam. The head fades very fast leaving a rather tiny bit of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell The aroma is heaviest of a citrus smell of tangerine and grapefruit as well as a strong showing of a wheaty and yeasty smell. Aromas of banana and a bit of a grassy and slightly funky smell are there as well, giving a rather nice sweeter and yeasty wit smell overall. Taste – The taste begins with a nice sweeter citrus and wheat flavor with a good deal of tangerine and orange and some nice wheat bread tastes. Upfront there are also some nice notes of banana and candied sugar which add to the overall sweet flavor of the brew. As the taste advances some of the sweeter candied sugar tastes and fruitiness of banana and tangerine decrease a bit, but all the while are replaced by some more yeasty and slightly sour lemon flavors. The yeasty tastes bring with them some lighter spice flavors of coriander and clove and with a hint of a grassy and hay like taste, one is left with a rather present, moderately sweet lemonade like and very tasty wit taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner to average side with a carbonation level that is rather average. The average body is great for the mix of yeast, fruit and wheat, all while the average carbonation keeps it very easy drinking, but yet does not hide any of the wheat, yeasty, or spiced flavors of the brew. Overall, it is rather well done. Overall – A quite tasty wit overall, with a great level of flavor and balance for a brew of only 5.3 %. A nice one to try if you get a chance.
