My most disappointing beer at the brewpub. Light haze but a very light color. Foamy in carbonation, giving it a soft palate, but a very flat flavor profile, such that as the carbonation fizzed in my mouth it had an effervescence of a classic American lager. Little to suit my tastes. On tap at brewpub.

On tap at the brewery. Another nice surprise from these guys! I’m in the minority of raters here that really love a good witbier. This is one of them. It pours a pale, slightly cloudy yellow with a small white head. The aroma has wheat with strong notes of lemon and lighter coriander. The flavor is powerful for the style with lots of wheat, tart lemon, orange and and toasty coriander. The citrus peel comes out in the finish. Very nice effort.

On tap at Southern Pacific poured a hazy yellow with a lingering ring of white foam. Aromas of wheat, coriander and a hint of citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of wheat, coriander and light citrus with a crisp dry lingering coriander finish.

Good, but nothing impressive. I wanted a lot of ginger in it as the description mentioned ginger. Instead, it was noted with a typical spiciness and without any banana or anything other than grains. I would’ve liked something more to smooth out the graininess and also bring out some ginger kick.

Pale yellow, slightly hazed brew with a fading white head. The nose is slightly wheaty - I don’t get much coriander or orange to be honest - it comes across as a slightly spy American wheat. There is a definite bit of yeasty spice in here but it’s subtle. Light lemon as well.

Draft. Straw beer with a whitish head. Wheat and light spice aroma. Wheat and spice flavor with light grain. Lighter bodied. Refreshing. Wheat and spice lingers with grain and light citrus. Didn’t impress me.
