Not a bad wit bier, just nothing really memorable going on here, despite the special grains used in its creation. Standard cloudy, champagne like body and mouth feel with your typical citrussy and clove flavor. Pretty refreshing on a summer day. This is actually the Wit is Over -- since the Cavaliers won.
tap at the brewpub - Pours cloudy straw colored with a small white head. It smells of yeast, citrus, and spice. The flavor is sweet and spicy with a hint of citrus. It’s light bodied and pretty good. JaBier (8445) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2009
On tap at GLBC. Cloudy yellow pour with a thin white head. Whole lot of spice in the aroma (mainly clove) and banana with some malt. Super herbal flavor with bananas, a bit of hop, clove, cinnamon and nutmeg. Tastes like it’s two parts weizen and one part pumpkin ale. Liked this one better than I thought I would.

Growler: The aroma consists of citrus, lemon, bubblegum, and pepper. It pours a transparent gold with a moderate white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. The flavor starts citrusy with some light yeastiness. The finish has some light lemon with some pepper. Light bodied with mild carbonation.
hazy golden with mild white head. moderate to high carbonation. citrusy nose. flavor of lemon, orange peel, and some spicy tea-like flavors. mild hop bitterness with a thin malt finish. a refreshing and quality wit, probably not as good as the Hoegaarden paradigm, but well done
