3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shaker from draft at Harvest Moon. Clear pale straw color. Light slick banana esters. Comes off overly industrial with not much else to it. But is a clean light banana wit.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle @ John’s Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Cloudy lemon gold color, bubbly 1/4" head, a few strips of lace. Taste is wheat and malt with orange and lemon citrus, light spices; seems a little like a shandy until the finish, with yeast and traditional bittering arriving, at which time it is more like a farmhouse ale. Okay, I guess.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Billowing bright white head with a fairly hazy gold body. The nose is citrus tinted with lemons and bread dough. There is also some funk like old leather. Notes of lemon peels and a nice spicy finish of what I assume is clove. The body is bright and lively. This one is interesting and slightly funky. A nicely carbonated body and a dry clean finish. One of the best wits I have tried!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very pale yellow with a small well retained head and not much in the way of lacing.
The aroma is spicy & orangey. It’s earthy and not very sweet smelling.... unique but familiar to the style for sure.
The flavor is dry & spicy with a nice bit of white pepper and orange. The beer has a nice zippy bitterness and a light doughy character.
The palate is prickly and lively.
Somewhere in the balance between Wit and Saison, a really enjoyable take on either style.

Aroma is spices, wheat and saison-like citrus. The flavor is spices, wheat, light fruit/hint of raspberry, citrus and a long and tart/slightly sour finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Lightly hazed apricot colored pour, white head. Man a lot of juicy oranges up front in this one followed by some nice wheat and yeast flavors. Very light on the tongue and really a nice beer. The hints of tartness are balanced well by the yeast and juicy flavors.
