Pours a pale translucent golden, bit more metallic in colour; not as pale as i expect from a wit. Slow bead and very, very light haze in body. Head is white, modest; retaining a decent crown & decent lace but yeah a paler colour and more cloud would be welcome.
Smells decently wit-ish: lots of orange peel on the nose, plenty fruity with lemon notes, a touch of candy and some bubblegum. Some spice aroma would get me excited, but otherwise all is there that should be.
Taste is also decent. Plenty of wit esters on the assault: citrus notes with orange/lemon and a touch of banana, some vanilla characters that are slightly too sweet and get stronger towards the mid, giving me an almost sugary mid-palate which is unfortunate. Phenolic yeast then takes over for the finish, but malt isn't there for a helping hand, hints of spice and medicine, but nothing really to balance. Slightly peppery but mostly a flat back palate where the body just dips srverely. Decent wit, but lacking that wow factor in a big way.
Overly fizzy on the front and yeah, lacking on the back. Not a fan.
They mostly hit the mark here but fail in some key areas. Drinkable though.
Serving type: on-tap
