callmemickey (4205) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2016
Clear pale golden body, medium to thin white head, spotty lacing. Clean flavor and aroma profile shows light citrus, cracker, and coriander. Light bodied, moderate to lively carbonation, just a touch of sweetness, crisp finish.

ClarkVV (5568) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Draught at the brewery, Summer 2014 and on draught at the Bostonian, 1/8/16.
Highly hazy/moderately cloudy, bright white gold with pineapple tones. White head atop is small and steadily recedes to cover.
Bubble gum, fresh, spicy coriander and light citrus zest give a pretty fair rendition of a traditional Belgian wit, in the nose. Definitely malty, with lots of biscuits, sweet bread and strong honey notes. No alcohol or flaws.
Malty, rather sweet flavor does manage some acidity from the yeast, as well as moderate bubble gum and light banana. Wheat adds light dryness and pleasant texture, but it gets just a bit sweet for my liking, by the bottom of the glass. Clean, though, and at least easily identifiable as a real witbier.
