3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden coloured body with a white head and a nice amount of bubbles. Aroma of hay, wheat and a bunch of dry coriander seed. Medium-bodied; Strong wheatie flavour with a lot of curacao and sweetness and a good dry character. Aftertaste is very nice with a cool, dry character showing a touch of sweetness on the finish. Overall, a nice wit with good characteristics and a surprising complexity. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Draeger’s Blackhawk in Danville, California on 18-March-2011 sampled in Danville, California.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Expressive coriander and orange peel whip up a classic Witbier character while citrusy melodies increase an already refreshing flavour profile.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the cloudy golden.
-The intensity of the perfume is greater than your typical example of the style.
-The body is well sculpted and might be a tad chewier than the usual Witbier’s.
-Carbonation may be a bit softer as well.
