On tap at Rattle N Hum. Pour is cloudy gold with a large white head. Aroma is of dough, oranges, lemons, spices. One of the best smelling Witbiers I’ve had. Flavor is much like the aroma but with more of the spices such as coriander and pine shinning through.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Tap at a Goose Island beer dinner here in Columbia. Poured a hazy yellow color with a soapy white head. Aroma was lots of spices, some orange and wheat. Flavor was much of the same. Grassy, spices, flavor. Peppery in the aftertaste. Longer finish, kind of lingers for a while. Good beer

ABR 2010. There is a lot going on with this beer. Tons of citrus, for a wit or for any other style. Light wheat, but lots of cloves and coriander. High abv for a wit.
