Draught at the World Beer Festival, Durham, NC. Cloudy yellow color with fluffy white head that laced the glass. Wheat, yeast, coriander, and oranges in the nose and flavor typical of the style. All are well balanced. Very refreshing.

Bottle courtesy of Legion242. Bot much for head but a thick cloudy pale yellow. Light banana scent with coriander. Very drinkable. Taste of yeast and spicy finish. If I drank this regularly I would hope it came in a bigger bottle.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale ass yellow color and a healthy white head. Aromas of yeast and citrus. Taste is pretty tart and citrucy. Mouthfeel is a bit thin for my liking. Still very quenching and good.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to Legion242 for this one. 12 oz bottle. Very pale yellow beer with a sticky, but fast fading white head. Very cloudy. Aroma is very wheaty and a bit floury, marshmallowy, very light coriander and lemon citrus. There is a slight phenolic character as well. Flavour is a bit muddled, wheaty spice, tart acidity up front but is otherwise lacking complexity. Seems a bit green and somewhat under-developed. Finishes quite dry.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Rather a typical American witbier, with yeast and wheat the overwhelming, somewhat harsh base -- barely a spicy touch of that coriander / curacao. Still, quite a refreshing brew with a healthy dose of fresh lemon squeezed in after the pour.
