look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

750ml bottle poured into a pils glass
A: Light yellow, a hint tan, with a 1/2-finger head that settles very quickly, though plenty of nice carbonation
S: Plenty of wheat, coriander, and a hint of citrus. Retains a bit of something I'd describe as unfermented wort
T: Light, with wheat up front, coriander, grass and just a hint if citrus juice
M: Light-bodied with pleasant carbonation
O: Worth a try, no flaws just could use a bit more complexity

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Pale clean but opaque golden with a large foamy white head.

S: Orange peel, grapefruit, citrus peel, and tripelesque spices (cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg) in the nose.

T: Lemon, orange, some tropical fruit even. Citrus peel and tripelesque spices.

M: Medium bodied and highly carbonated. Very easy to drink.

O: Definitely recommended. A very typical, but easy drinking and tasty white ale/witbier/whatever.

Appearance - Pours a hazy straw yellow with a mountainous, pillowy 3 finger head. Great retention, leaving a thick layer of suds across the surface. Lacing along the glass is thick, and clings to the sides with great ease.

Smell - Tart citrus, like lemon with touches of tangerine, along with clove and some milkiness that I pick up with a lot of witbiers. Wheat. Touches of floral character.

Taste - Lots of citrus bite. Lemon and tangerine. Clove finds its niche by mid-taste, along with some mild funk. Mild banana. Wheat hits near the finish before a balanced finish of flavors.

Mouthfeel - Medium in body with lively carbonation. Goes down smooth and easy, with a crisp finish.

Overall - I like the mouthfeel with this one. A lot of witbiers suffer from what I think is a watery edge. This has a solid feel. I don't know that it's worth the price, but this is a quality wit.
