330ml bottle, chilled and poured into a Troubadour tulip glass

Look: Pours a cloudy, straw yellow with a couple of fingers of white head. Good head retention, very little in the way of lacing. Typical witbier.

Smell: Again, a typical witbier - fairly citrusy smell with just a little hint of spiciness, although the latter isn't particularly noticeable. The citrus notes are more towards toe orange end of the scale rather than lemon.

Taste: follows the smell, pretty much, although the spiciness is rather more evident in the after taste and there's a certain amount of wheatiness too. There's a citrus tartness there, so it's actually pretty refreshing.

Feel: Despite the colour (and the image on the bottle ;-) ) there's actually a bit of body there - enough carbonation to give it a bit of zing without being stupidly fizzy. Fairly smooth finish.

Overall: As Belgian witbiers go, you could do a lot worse than this - although I like Hoegaarden and its ilk, this just seems to be a cut above them. Would be a go-to witbier if it were more readily available, and I'd certainly have no hesitation about having it on tap.

Generally a fan of the style. This one was pretty good. Very clean and smooth, sweet and somewhere between orange and lemon in the taste. A little spice (coriander?) does not really stand out but lingers. Very tasty, refreshing and easy to drink. Optimal summer beer. A little thin or maybe I would say flat. Extremely enjoyable beer that I would gladly enjoy at anytime. If you like wheat/hefe/wit this is a good one, if you want hop move on.
