Pours hazy blond with a thick white head. Some citrus in the aroma and a light Belgian yeast smell, some spices as well. Good flavor though and a decent try at the style. Enjoyable.

No head left, slightly hazy straw-yellow beer. Flattish coriander & citrus nose, bit wheat-like acidity, even yoghurt. Bitterish lining around more citric-lactic acidity; this last composed of lactic, citrus and wheat components. Thin body, thinned further by the acidity. Decent witbier, not more.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My Bottom Line:
Spicy, flowery coriander seeds accompany crunchy wheat while citrusy fruitiness enhances the quenching aspect of this sparkling and straightforward Witbier.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-Superb creamy foam tops the cloudy beige-white.
-The body is tight and the carbonation prickly, creating a refreshingly bubbly mouthfeel.
-All flavors are balanced and the spiciness isn’t overdone.
-This was the most drinkable beer I had that day at the Prato pub.
On tap at the Prato taproom.
