Thought this was a saison initially so I poured it into a tulip.
Only after I poured most of it unto this glass I found out its a witbier. Drat! Next time, proper glassware.
From this session, here are my findings.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy golden yellow to orange color with a thin half finger-ed white foamy head that concaves rather nicely leaving a nice clingy foaminess all around.
The smell was absolutely amazing with a nice lemon to orange fruitiness really sweet and strong with such a nice spicy coriander and clove - like allocation in the blend.
The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors and combined them rather nicely.
On the palate, this one sat right at a medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation finishes fairly smooth with a nice creaminess coating my tongue. The carbonation is there but not too much.
Overall, hot damn, I was skeptical of the price but being my first one by Logsdon, I had to jump. Oh yeah, bottle number is 16985, best if enjoyed by 12/2014. This was so worth the $15. I can only imagine how it would be if I would have put it in proper glassware. Hypo_Luxa (59) - Osaka, JAPAN - NOV 3, 2013

750 cc, capped, from Frank Smith’s. Pours clear golden with 2-fingers of fluffy, white head and a high level of carbonation. Nose is wheaty pale malt, hops, kiwi. Tastes smooth, complex, with pale malt, hops, kiwi, wheat, florals, mild white peppery spice. This is an incredible witbier, and certainly must be in my top 10 for this style, if not higher.

This is how you do a Wit right. Just fantastic creamy lactose richness with zesty citrus rind and spices. The brett and subtle tartness just dry out the finish and add to the complexity. Could drink this one all day. madvike (3271) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 2, 2013
Bottle - Hazy golden pour with a soapy, filmy white head. Nose is stone fruit, pear, coriander, subtle citrus peel, and a bit of tart funk. Mmm...very pungent and fresh nose. The taste is equally as good. It has a light gueuze funk to it with subtle spiciness, fruity, dry malt, and a touch of stale, herbal hops on the finish. Fluffy body, thin and bubbly with ample carbonation. Tastes like a saison/gueuze/wit hybrid. Glorious. superspak (5681) - Michigan, USA - OCT 30, 2013
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 2/2014. Big gusher upon opening, but didn’t lose any of it. Pours very hazy golden amber color with a 3 finger dense and rocky white head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big lemon, pear, apple, apricot, grape, coriander, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, oats, herbal, grass, musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast ester and malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, apricot, grape, coriander, wheat, bread, oats, clove, pepper, herbal, grass, musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of lemon, apricot, light fruits, coriander, pepper, clove, wheat, bread, oats, herbal, grass, light funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, malt, and spice flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with very smooth, crisp, fairly creamy, and moderately prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a really excellent witbier! All around great complexity, balance, and robustness of flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering. Sissio (1666) - Orsenigo, ITALY - JUN 27, 2016
