3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The weakest of the series. A plane gold body with almost no head. Faint wheat on the nose and a light wheat body. A somewhat dry finish.

Cloudy Gold Coloring with White Glazed Head. Very Subtle Spices in Aroma. Hard to Detect. Light Wheat Background, Crispy and Dry..Grains...Making for a Wet Tongue and a Dry Throat Aftertaste. Drinkable...with a Light Grassiness as Well. Nice Summer Brew.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On-tap at the brewpub: Hazen medium straw gold color with a small white steardy sitting foam. Laces well in webby sheeting.
Wheatifiedly sweet with wheat on the nose. Nicely fresh and dominant wheat factions tang, spark, and jump to the front with a lovely high ended sweetness. Mildly lemony with a musk oily snap and spice.
Taste has lots of length in the wheat tang. Solidly fresh with a mild snap of buttery lemon wheat toast. Sweet on the wheat and boldly layered and long lasting. Light lemon candyish backwashing and popping wheat spice and breads carry across the finish for great lengths. The whole wheat spice and sweetness really makes a home. Wheat malt is dominant and freshly so with an absolutely fine display of smooth balance and girth.
Feel is bold, clean, and sweet with a solid quick medium body and circumference of wheat snappy sweetness and spice. A solidly smooth drinker. Nothing out of the ordinary for a Town Hall brew. One hell of a wheat beer; good stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Town Hall beer number 50: Golden color with no head. Intersting aroma... there’s some spiciness I would usually associate with a saison, coupled with what appeared to be lemon. Hmmm... The taste was very standard wheat with some orange and lemon zest thrown in. I could swear I tasted a bit of lemongrass. Some spice on the finish. A solid wheat beer to clear the half century mark at Town Hall!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Town Hall’s latest version of a Belgian White Ale (or Witbier), but brewed with American yeast and a slightly different blend of spices.
Why? Because it’s July, American Beer Month!
Clear, hazy straw yellow, big carbonation, nice head, an adequate layer of white.
Aroma is sweetness and spice, but which spice(s)? We took a vote and cinamon took the lead, but ginger was the sidekick. A hint of lemon behind. Just like the Belgian wit, citrus and spice are king. Quite a lively thing in the nose!
It sizzles in the mouth, too, jumps and jitterbugs...light bodied, supremely drinkable...if you like it. A caveat: not for everyone, there’s something distinct in the flavor, that some may not be keen on. Me, I love it. Like I said, it’s it’s own thing, love it or leave...
Thinking on the name...seems they took "liberty" with a classic style, to their own end...and, it’s also the second in a three part series...watch out for the Pursuit of Happiness!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
An interesting innovation but I would prefer a standart wit. There are aspects of a Belgian white, with light orange and coriander aromas as flavors. There is citrus as well. Rather light body, and a little thin. Gold color, with very little head.
