Bottle courtesy of obguthr at the 15th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering on 07/16/2011. Very clear golden body with a small frothy white head. Somewhat astringent aroma with some fruit. Huge astringent flavor with some light fruit. Medium body with moderate carbonation
Sampled on draft at the brewery on 7/15/11. Pours a hazy straw yellow with a thin creamy head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of wheat, spicy notes and citrus. The taste is big citrus notes with some breadiness and a slight tartness. Medium bodied. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Richmond Gathering. I wanted to like this, I really did. I love wits. This wasn’t a good one. Or even a good beer unfortunately. Clear yellow, not hazy. Aroma is soapy, a bit of coriander. Flavor matches. Very light bodied. What kills this is the surprisingly high astringency. I don’t think I have ever had a wheat beer with this much astringency. Just strips the palate. Hope they can sort this one out. obguthr (6733) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUL 16, 2011

Very pale clear light yellow pour with minimal fading white head. Was this filtered? A little floral, a little astringent, a little honey sweet. Tannens and a little woody. I’m not really digging this.

A nice wit, not unique... which is what I look for. But enjoyable for sure. Not the standard cloudy. Very drinkable, enjoyable for anyone.
