muzzlehatch (4903) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 21, 2016
250 ml draught at Caf Hollander in Madison, WI, August 18th. Solid, typical wit appearance - cloudy, almost opaque gold with a thick fluffy lasting head...banana, lemon and just a hint of farmy, murky yeast in the pleasing but slight aroma...on the tongue, only a hint of that wheaty tartness, this is overall much sweeter than usual for the style, and the finish is not far off from (sweet) lemonade...its got a decent fullness to the body, and its drinkable enough, and I was hot from walking outside and this was the first beer at lunch - but thats not enough to make it memorable. Ive had some or all of the other Lowlands Collaborative beers here at Hollander and a couple of other locations, and frankly none of them have been all that special.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2015 At Benelux in Milwaukee. Maybe this batch was a little different than some of the other raters had but this was once of the most spiced/clovey wits Ive had. Serving: Tap

Enjoyed on tap in carafe form at Cafe Hollander in Wauwatosa, WI while dining with friends. Appearance is a bright, cloudy gold with a rich white head. Aroma of spice, wheat, citrus, definite light aroma. Taste had a soft touch of spice/clove and mirrors the aroma. I thought this was pretty good, nothing groundbreaking and there are better brews for the style, but still not bad.

deyholla (10687) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2012
On tap @ Centraal. Pours a cloudy pale straw yellow with a fluffy white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of earthy wheat backed by light citrus, flora and a hint of clove. Flavor is similar with light citrus and flora in the beginning but has an earthy wheat finish and a hint of clove.
