You have to rate this beer on what it is. A Belgium Witt that uses a wild yeast that provides a hint of a sour note and taste to the beer. This beer is well made for a hybrid. The aroma is clean like a wheat beer with a note of sour but its pleasant and blends together well. Mouth feel is velvety and smooth. Like a wheat beer should be. Aftertaste has a slight sour finish which adds an unexpected but satisfying twist to this beer. The sour note and carbonation make it a very refreshing beer. It’s an excellent beer.

750 ml bottle courtesy of secret santa. Thanks. Pours a cloudy yellow-gold color with a small white head that has fair retention. The aroma is medium in strength with lemons and lemon candy. Tastes like a lemon meringue pie, lots of fresh sweet citrus set in a meringue style malt base. The palate is full and smooth soft carbonation. Finishes long and dry with lingering lemons. Overall: I really like this, A very good wit, thanks again santa.

Pours hazy gold, minimal head and lacing. Aroma is sweet and distant citrus. Flavor is refreshing- big citrus with hints of mint, rosemary, and ginger. Quite quaffable and very summery for a winter ale. Very nice, thanks Daniel (CheesedMan)!

Hazy light golden colored pour. Big frothy white head. Plenty of lacing. Fruity malt and yeast aroma. Spicy. Taste is the same with a bit more fruit. Citrusy. Nice.

Bottle grabbed from the brewery. Pours a slightly hazy nearly clear light yellow with a small quickly receding white head. Big fruit on the aroma, oranges, tart cranberry, honey, wheat, some funky yeast and just a hint of spice. Flavor is big orange peel, some lightly tart cranberry, a bit of coriander (?) spice, lemon peel. This is extremely light bodied with huge effervescent carbonation that makes this lighter and dryer than the regular version of Cottonmouth with less sweetness. Lingering orange peel and light sweetness. I like this a lot. A very very light holiday brew that can be sucked down all day long. They really hit the orange blossom honey and cranberry tart on the nose here. Nicely crafted if not the best Belgian Wit out there.

Was happy to find this on the shelf locally. Shared with family on Christmas Eve. The pour is a yellow-gold with a white head that yields spotty lacing. Dusty lemon aroma, with some yeast, citrus juice, and faint traces of holiday spice. This is light going down with flavors of lemon, oranges, light yeast, and notes of cranberry, and ginger, although I was looking for those last two. Maybe a tad watery but refreshing and I like their take on a holiday beer. Florida style!

Had this at a Christmas tasting party. Nice and enjoyable. Thanks Doug for a great tasting! This was one of my favorites from the night.

bright and citrusy with some spice in the background, its a rather refreshing taking on a holiday beer.

Bottle courtesy of BMMillsy. Sweet citrusy cranberry and ginger aroma - floral honey developed more as it warmed, and a slight hint of vanilla. Hazy yellow with a moderate white head. Sweet tart citrus, fruity cranberry, dry ginger, and light honey wheat malt flavor. As it warmed floral white grape became apparent in the flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation. I really liked this approach to a holiday seasonal, as opposed to some of the heavily spiced options.

750ml bottle from Proof. Opaque yellow pour with white head. Aroma is wheat, spices, light ginger, herbal, light perfume. Tastes are ginger, honey, orange citrus, bread and lemon. Very slight tartness. Little salty. Vaguely interesting, though not easy to tell what they where after.
