Pours a slightly hazy orangey color, topped with small white head. The aroma is pleasantly mild - fruity aroma is complemented by some spices. The taste is sweet and fruity, also some spices are present. Finish is slightly bitter. Creamy and smooth, easily drinkable and has the necessary refreshing feel. I’m not a fan of witbiers, but this one is amazing.

From BA review on 2-25-12 - Poured from bottle into pilsner glass. Appearance –Pours a very hazy orange color with a big white head. The head fades relatively fast, but leaves a very persistent foam on the brew. Smell – A citrus aroma is most pertinent and lasts from start of smell to finish. There is a yeast cake and a little bit of lemon mixing in as well. Quite nice. Taste – Sweet malt mixed with some very nice orange citrus flavors; these flavors are present throughout. Toward the middle of the taste some of the yeastiness and a bit of breadiness are present. The yeast and the bread begin to fade more toward the end giving way to a sweeter taste (citrus in nature but also a bit of cane sugar sweet as well). Mouthfeel – Medium to slightly above body in nature. It coats the mouth quite nicely. This coupled with some more evanescent bubbles tingles on the tongue and mix very well with some of the sweet citrus flavors that come to the end of the taste. Overall – This is really quite a nice refreshing and drinkable beer. It is quite nice in all the categories. A very good session beer.

Bottle. Pours to a hazy golden straw body with a creamy starch white head. The aroma is wheat and oranges with a stronger coriander. Nice wheat with wit yeast and coriander. Having had this many times before, I am surprised I never rated it. Medium light clean body.
