12 oz bottle into tulip. no bottled on date.
A: an orangey yellow hued brew. hazy. head is bubbly and white. retention isnt great nor is the lacing.
S: crystalized ginger is strong. coriander. orange peel. a lot of different, intense spice aromas makes for a very inviting nose on this wit.
T: i say freshly cracked black pepper a lot, but this is the real deal. crystalized ginger. star anise. enough malt to provide a canvas, but certainly not enough of a player over these spice flavors. finish is straight black pepper but then turns relatively clean and dry.
M: average carbonation on a medium body.
D: i appreciate the additions of peppercorns, coriander, juniper berries, and sweet orange peel as they add welcomed complexities to the nose and palate. definitely on the bigger side of wits, this one is worth a shot.

Poured from the bottle into a Hoegaarden glass.
A lifeless head that barely makes a pencil thin puck off the pour, leaving a very faint soapy collar that isn't even. Body color is peach amber, dull, and full of lots of sediment even when pouring slowly, with lots of floaties.
Nose though is quite charming. Hints of white wine, and nice peach like sweetness. Some lemon and citrus character but a real nice peach juicy quality, and this wine like yeast character. Real interesing, and very unexpected for a witbier. Really digging it.
Palate comes nicely. A good malt coating, that hints and accentuates the peach sweetness. Some hints of smooth Belgian sugars but with some powdery clove and hot pepper flavors. Nice quenching juicy finish full and lush with citrus and fruit. Spicy aftertaste that lingers with an interesting heat.
This is a real unique witbier and very enjoyable. Quite memorable I'll have to look out for this again.
