From a can shared at home. Pours dark yellow with a thin white head but lots of carbonation. Aroma of peach. Soft mouthfeel. Refreshing flavors of citrus zest and coriander. Crisp, clean finish. Would definitely be a sessionable beer on a warm sunny day.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Peppery spices and delicate oranges dwell within this Witbier’s crisp and spritzy mouthfeel.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the cloudy pale yellow.
-This is just perfect for the local weather. Not a spice soup, thankfully.
-Drinkability is very high and body appropriately lean.
-This doesn’t reek of coriander, which is appreciated. So many North American Witbiers are overwhelming on that front, imho.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz canned December 28, 2012. Served at around 40F. Thanks to Mark for this gift.
Pours lightly hazy gold with a two finger white head that recedes to a light cap and doesn’t leave much lacing behind.
Aroma is pink bubblegum, banana, coriander/spice, some lemon and citrus, wheat/grainy, Belgian yeast. Good to very good strength.
Flavor is lemon citrus, some sweet fruity malt, spice/coriander, Belgian yeast, minimal alcohol, moderate sweetness, mild to moderate bitterness.
Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, somewhat sticky, good to sharp carbonation.
Pretty good Wit, although admittedly not a style I normally seek out.
