4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
330ml bottle into a nonic.
Pours a hazy straw yellow with a huge three finger billowy white head. The fluffy head sticky around for a long time and leaves huge clumps of lacing on the sides of the glass. This is what a wit should look like. Picture perfect.
The aroma just jumps out of the glass with lemon and coriander dominating. There are more subtle hints of clove, banana, and orange. There is a real sharpness to the aroma that I love.
The flavor brings forth tons of coriander and more orange than was present in the aroma. Fresh baked bread along with lemon provide support along with a delicate tartness on the tip of the tongue. Perfect soft wheat character along with abundant carbonation that is perfect for the style.
Overall, this is what every witbier should strive to be like. To me, this is the absolute defining beer of the style and by far the best wit I have ever had. I only wish I could get this close to where I live because I would go through cases during the summer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Drinkshop. Aroma very characteristic, mostly spicy, coriander, also clean orange notes. Hazy yellow colour, rather quickly disappearing head. Light bready yeasty element in taste, which throws it off very slightly for me. But otherwise it is a very classic and tasty beer. Refreshing, with good balance.
