On tap.. Light golden color with a medium head. Aroma was a bit of yeast and some fruitiness. Flavor was mild yeast and a bit of floral and fruitiness and a bit of wheat. Refreshing beer..

This golden wheat beer pours with a short head that dissipates quickly. The hoppy flavor is actually very pleasant, with a hint of spice and orange. In my opinion, this beer is underrated.

Citrusy, hoppy aroma, very light. Poured cloudy yellow with thin diminishing white head. Constant carbonation from the bottom. Starts bittersweet, citrus hops prevalent. Finish is smooth and sweet. Short aftertaste.

Did not really have any taste - the aroma was good, but the flavor was neutral. Not offensive, but not worth seeking out.

ABUSEDGOAT (2693) - California, USA - APR 9, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2005 So yeah. I used to like this. Then I tried like 10 other beers in the style and saw a lot of flaws. Its a nice cloudy golden body, but after that its downhill. Weak Wit aroma with plastic and other junk. Flavor is the same making this a pretty pathetic Wit.

Oakes (16965) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 7, 2005
Cloudy tan colour. Might be the ugliest wit Ive ever seen, at least amongst unfiltered ones. Filtered ones are so much more heinous. Aroma shows a little curacao and some sweaty yeast notes that remind of suntan lotion. In short, it smells like a pleasant afternoon in Aruba. The tastes is remarkably similar with phenolic curacao and yeast sweat intermingling under a blanket of dull, plodding malts. Because this beer is every bit as uncool as mixing metaphors, it is like a bad karaoke version of a really good song.

This is an *excellent* Witbier! I was quite surprized at just how good it was. As is typical of the beer snobs, since this is brewed by some obscure American brewery in Tennessee, it gets a paultry rating...but such is the way things are in the extreme snobbery of the beer world (thank God were not in the WINE world where the snobber is even more frickin disgusting!) Anyway, bottom line, this is a very fine Belgian White.

TheRimmer (483) - Florida, USA - APR 4, 2005
Stinks like the U.S. mint. Gives way to bread, grain, citrus. The taste is slightly metallic with yeast and some zest. This really could be worse.

schocha610 (2) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2005 does not count
An excellent choice. It has a crisp taste with a better than average aftertaste. I believe it to be better with the addition of a slice of orange. Better on tap than in the bottle. Very affordable, which being a college guy, price is definitely included in a beer rating.
