3.15/5  rDev -15.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Pours a pale straw color with small foamy head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma of fruit, some coriander, wheat, spice and touch of yeast. Taste of citrus, fruit and spice with some wheat. Mild bitterness with a tart finish. Fairly light body, quite smooth with a bit of a grainy texture. Decent beer for the style but nothing special.

From a 330 ml bottle to a pint glass.

This beer looks good right from the get go. It pours a cloudy straw gold with white tones and a fluffy three finger head that lasts for minutes before breaking and leaving a thin layer of bubbles and some interesting lacing behind. The smell is fruity and yeasts with a touch of coriander. The taste comes with banana first and some fruity sweetness, followed by a touch of yeast and some very faint spice. The taste is mellow. The mouth feel is light and crisp with moderate carbonation.

I am not normally a huge fan of witbiers as I find the coriander taste to be a little unpalatable. But this beer is a change. It is quite tasty and really refreshing. Nothing extraordinary, but certainly very drinkable and a great option on a hot day.

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

Poured from a 1 pt 0.5 fl oz can into a Duvel tulip. Moderate hand. Dated 14/08/06 on the bottom. Had a number of times, but never reviewed.

A: Hazy yellow body with lime-colored tint and some visible sediment. 3 fingers of sudsy, white head. Good retention. Light lacing.

S: Fruity, lightly spicy Belgian yeast. Lemon. Straw. Coriander. Vanilla. Slight banana.

T: Sweet initially with the quick development of a citric-acid type tartness. Minimal bitterness. Semi-dry finish. Lingering tang and soft wheat notes.

M: Moderate-to-high carbonation with a moderate body. Seems fuller than I remember, but still very refreshing and crisp.

O: Very nice wit. Good quality of flavors, if not a bit light overall. This brew has its own unique wit thing happening. Dig the tartness. Didn't mind the sediment. Great hot weather pick. Bonus for tallboy cans.

Prost!
