Slightly hazy orange color. A few visible bubbles. Descent off-white head with poor retention and minimal lace.

Fresh citrus aroma, primarily orange.

Flavor of sweet orange with a grapefruit bitterness. Wheat malt character. Belgian yeast. Smooth and satisfying.

Lighter end of medium body. Smooth texture throughout. Good carbonation.

Solid wit. Well balanced, tasty and easy to drink.

Pours to a limp white head that dissipates. Hazy yellow-orange. Aroma is sharp wheat, citrus and chablis. Flavor is orange, coriander and wheat malt as expected. Mouthfeel is light and moderate CO2. Overall, a decent beer that hits many of the style points.

Pours a hazy pale yellow with an almost non-existent head. Smells of some coriander and a hint of lemon. Taste is a citrusy, wheaty beginning, followed by a powerful acidic sourness, finishing with a huge freshly brewed tea finish. Mouthfeel is good. Overall a good beer, though not really to Witbier style with the intense acidic sourness. I do wonder if it is supposed to taste that way? Even if it is an infection and not intended, it surprisingly tastes pretty good. I would get this again.

Poured this witbier from a bottle into a pint glass. The Witbier poured a hazy yellowish straw color. It produced a thin white head and it had poor head retention. The aroma of the witbier contained soft wheat, citrus, and some spicy coriander. This beer tasted light in body, somewhat crisp wheat taste. There was an immediate citrus test, some spicy hints of coriander- The finish is dry. Good Session beer, good summer ale. Overall in terms of a Witbier...only average.
