Poured into a mug, the appearance was a clear orange to yellow color with a decent looking finger and a half of white foamy head. Dissipates gently to leave some stringy almost spider web lacing.
The aroma had some malty wheat sweetness, decent yeasty/breadiness. Tart fruitiness - somewhat old and then a leathery sweet/barnyard grassy earthiness.
The flavor took all of those previously mentioned aromas to try to blend and it somewhat does, but ends up bringing in some cotton candy. Light cotton candy aftertaste, somewhat acceptable to me. Wet sweet finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly good sessionability about it. Soft carbonation. Gentle ABV, almost doesn’t seem quite up to what is stated.
Overall, mostly good witbier, if one can look past the cotton candy flavor. Possibly again.

DiarmaidBHK (5948) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2015
Bottle from Total wine Norwalk. Certainly comes in a pretentious enough bottle. pours golden with a thick white head. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. not a lot of coriander or orange peel on the nose. A bit dry on the tongue. could definitely use a bit of goosing. Can’t say it was worth the price.

The_Osprey (9347) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2015
Cask at GBBF 2015. Hazy pale yellow, small foamy white head. Aroma is pithy fruits, particularly lemon. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is lemon, bubblegum, estery apple, some spice, quite astringent. A touch strange but nice enough.
