3.5/5 rDev -4.9%
Pours out a hazy gold with a thick white head. Belgian spicy yeast is the biggest thing I pick up in the nose. Light citrus of the hop aromas mixes well with the witbier base. Tastes yeasty with citrus and coriander notes. Hops add a punch of bitterness, but the hop flavors get muddled with the wit characteristics. Mouthfeel has a light prickliness, but it is fairly creamy and full. This is pretty good, but lacking more hop character for a white IPA.

BOD 111/14. Pours golden with a touch of haze. Outstanding head, lacing and above average retention. Light, but interesting, complex nose - grapefruit with tropical notes over a spicy background. Light medium body that manages to be almost creamy in texture. Slightly above normal carbonation with a nice effervescent finish. The unique flavor profile is quite complex and well balanced. It begins with the sweeter tropical hop notes, flows into grapefruit, then takes on a spicy character. The finish is a well flavored light bitterness that is slightly astringent with grapefruit rind qualities. An excellent wit/IPA cross!!

Pours clear gold with a fading head.
Nose shows spicy Belgian yeast, light floury wheat along with spicy, earthy and herbal hops.
Flavours include more spicy Belgian notes, herbal and spicy hops, light malt character and an assertive but not aggressive bitterness.
Nice moderately high carbonation.
