Looks like lemonade. Nice sharp citrus zest flavor; lots of corriander. Light, spicy, refreshing, very dry with a long, bitter herbal finish. Not something I’d like if I weren’t in the mood for it, but excellently balanced and well-made.

The best American witbier. Very refreshing, but it is without all the unpleasant yeast finish, that are present in most Belgian witbiers.

Poured a hazy golden color with a thin, off white head that left no lacing on the glass. Aroma of perfume, lavender soap, some spices, citrus, and orange peel. Taste of citrus, pineapple, more orange peel, vanilla, and a sweet finish. Very enjoyable.

on tap at MacGrady’s, a pale yellow body with a fizzy white head, pretty thin, giving off an aroma of sweet lemon, orange and spices. flavor was heavy with the spices, mostly coriander and citrus, mostly orange, but also lemon and pineapple. a very smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel, more body than most wits, and lots of spices in the finish. a very flavorful and easy to drink brew.

Somwhere between a Wit and an American Hefeweizen. Spices noticeable but not as prononced as others of the style. More body in the middle. This beer is great with food.

I’ve had this bottle since last September so it’s interesting to see how it’s held up. Hazy golden straw like color with a medium white head. Sweet citrus aromas consisting of oranges and lemons, along with yeast and some spices. Light and refreshing. Citrus flavors are balanced by notes of yeast and spice. A nice summer brew.
