Growler shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike!
The beer appears a cloudy, straw yellow hue with a thick, dense white head. The head displays noticeable staying power, gradually fading to about a quarter inch and leaving some decent lacing on the glass.
The aroma seems a bit out of character for a witbier. It smells much more like a hefeweizen, with a prominent scent of banana and clove.
The taste is decent, but with much more banana than I would prefer from a witbier. Also, the spices, especially coriander, are muted and could be brought out more. The beer is slightly grainy / bready, with a slightly low carbonation level.
I’d be interested to try this again, as I was a bit underwhelmed this first time around, especially based on the initial reviews from a few friends.

This traditionally styled wit beer hits all the right notes. Pours cloudy straw with a small white head. Lots of orangey citrus in the nose. Medium bodied, and full flavored with nice cracked wheat backbone. Finishes clean with a light airy fruitiness.

On draught at McClellan- Washington. Pours a very dense pale straw color with a yellowish hue. Fine bubble white head and lace. Mild corriander aroma. Medium body with moderately effervescent mouthfeel. Not over carbonated. Impressive blend of light spices complement the mellow wheat flavor. Refreshing and not filling.

Poured a hazy orange/yellow color with a white head. Aroma has lots of spices with pepper. Lemons and oranges in the aroma too. Taste is fruity and flavorful. Slightly tart with oranges. Aftertaste is a bit peppery with cloves and other spices. Overall a solid wit.

Nice aroma of spice (coriander) and citrus. The first sip has some spice and a nice Belgian wit flavor, but then becomes soapy and unbalanced.Not bad, but not good for this style.
