It may be called "crafty" by some but I think it is getting a lot of people to open their eyes to more than the standard BMC offerings. Its also widely distributed so itís also the best available choice in many establishments. Good aroma with some malt and coriander upfront. Hazy appearance as expected with decent head that dissipates relatively quickly. Good light to medium body with a pleasant finish.

Hazy golden with a small head. Aroma is malty and grainy with a hint of citrus and spices. Taste is sweetish and malty too with some fruits and faint touch of sourness at finish. Soft carbonation. Not among the best witbier Iíve tasted. (330ml bottle, BB 28.12.17)

12 oz twist off bottle shared by ebone1988. I think this was his brotherís, so Iím not sure who I should be unhappy with. This book will kill me. The pour is a darker golden yellow with a light egg shell colored head and no lace as it falls down. The aroma is definitely wheat heavy. There is a light citrus, and a strange spiciness to it. This is just bland as shit. The flavor is not as good. There is a lot of coriander which I donít like at all. There is a hint of citrus and a wheaty bit on the back end. The grains are really combating the spices that are used here. The mouth feel is light and watery with a soft carbonation that just doesnít work and a lingering wheat and spice finish. This isnít good at all. Ugh. 4 3 4 3 10

Taste is very floral, fruity, coriander, light citrus, wheat, not terrible but not great. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light carbonation, floral citrus wheat and spice aftertaste. Overall, not terrible, but certainly not good.
