A very pale, very cloudy yellow color with a bit of a foamy head. The aroma has the typical sweet-yeasty wheat beer smell. The taste is bright and yeasty. A pretty good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled at Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition Fest 2015 - Pours pale cloudy yellow with a white head. The aroma has rich malt, mild coriander, wheat and a mushiness. It has a medium smooth body with soft carbonation. The taste starts with mushy wheat, pepper, cram and hints of citrus. The finish has pepper, coriander and mild caramel. Okay wit.

Sampled at Repeal. A fairly standard wit, which is not a bad thing. Some decent fruitiness and ut is a little smoother than most. Pleasant wit.

Bottle. Poured a hazy orange color with a white head. Aroma has lots of spices with pepper. Lemons and oranges in the aroma too. Taste is fruity and flavorful. Slightly tart with oranges. Aftertaste is a bit peppery with cloves and other spices. Overall a solid wit.

Bottle shared at catch 22 bottle share! Pours a slightly hazy yellow with fluffy white head. Aroma and taste are standard for the style, overall a decent wit, but just ok, nothing exciting.

Cloudy white with a thinnish head on draft at citizen burger bar. Aroma is almost nonexistent. A bit citrus flavor actually mostly citrus because there’s not a lot of anything else. Decent wit though.
