Pours a pale straw color with a sizable bright, white head. Visible particulate, including thin wisps, meander through the glass. Mild aroma smells of coriander, mandarin orange, and a dash of hops. The coriander is very prominent in the flavor profile, accompanied by orange and lemon. A small dose of hops sneaks through in the finish amidst a lingering wheat flavor. Perky carbonation combines with the assertive coriander to create a mouthfeel that is almost too crisp, yet slightly watery as well. Thin arms of lacing cling to the glass as the beer recedes.
Overall, this is a respectable, no-thrills witbier. The essentials are there, but they're a little out of balance, and the body is lacking. Probably would go better with a warm summer's day than an unseasonably cool spring evening.

A pounder sized can poured into a standard pint glass. The brew pours a pale, light golden yellow color with chunky yeast making its way into the glass despite a carefull pour. A white cap stands firm with 2 fingers and slowly fades.
The smell of this is lemony almost like a candy sort of sweet grain aspect and a bit of minerals/sulfur breaking up then pleasant notes.
This tastes like fresh cereal grain and lemony candy. A slight wheat-like tartness is present to assist in boosting the drinkability.
This is light bodied and moderately carbonated. This is very easy drinking. Overall not bad and id probably drink it again if I was in the mood for a wit.
