3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewery. Pours a semi-cloudy pale gold color with a white head. Notes of dandelion, persimmon, wheat, coriander, lemon, and dough. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a wheaty mouthfeel. Not a whole lot to say, just a good Belgian wit.

[ Growler ][ RBWG Afterparty3 ][ 64oz ][ Globe ][ Free ][ 2/8/14 ]
>> Thanks MaxxDaddy for the share. Pours a clear gold, great foam. Nice retention. Nose is fresh dough, honey, Blue Moon style coriander, lemon, macro lager-ish corn. Taste is big spice, anesthetic, sticky sugar, slight paper. Palate is stickier, sweet, no persimmon really which to me is a sweet maple flavor, but maybe that is what is making this beer too sweet for style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Taster on tap at Wicked Weed during RBWG. Clear orange red looking color. Thin off-white head. Good thicker ropes of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, lighter kind of soft carbonation. More dry finish. Good light zesty sweet taste, moderate bitter taste. Tropical and citrusy fruity hop aroma, some light banana, belgian yeast. An awesome full bodied wit. A bit darker for the style, though. Nice chocolate nutty notes.. Tasty, but weird for a wit.

Glass at the brewery. Light hazing in this golden beer. A nice white head. A wit aroma that is soft as is the flavor. This would make for a good starter beer which is what I had it as. There is gentle fruit and the persimmon is light. Bitterness is kind of dry but also very soft. A good morning beer.
