33 cl bottle (bb 18062015) into a tulip. Hazy straw color, three finger white head, light lacing and ok retention.
Mild, fresh smell of tart wheat, orange peel and a hint of coriander.
Taste begins with orange and a little sugar, followed by lightly tart wheat and spices, ending with a slightly dry hop bitterness. The aftertaste is spicy, coriander and perhaps clove, and a little orange.
Light body, high carbonation. Overall a refreshing, flavorful witbier. A good summer drink that I would gladly have again, especially on a hot day.

2.86/5 rDev -23.5%
Appearance: Cloudy yellow brew with one inch white head and some lacing. Low perceived effervescence and devoid of floaties.
Smell: Very mild banana, honey and coriander aromatic balance. Noticeable buttery and cardboard aromatics nearly ruin the smell.
Taste: Mild. What stands out here is the soapy, cardboardy notes that just about run through every other aromatic note.
Mouthfeel: Watery, soapy, flat, low everything: bitterness, carbonation, body. Very short finish.
Overall: Very mediocre. Really hard to find noteworthy merits.
