An easy drinking, unexceptional witbier. Hazy yellow body, big fluffy white head with strong retention. Very nice lacing.

Standard nose is full of coriander, clove, yeasty notes, lemon, typical for the style but not particularly aromatic. Taste is as expected, very typical, just a bit of grassy bitterness in the finish, spices, yeast esters, mild citrus notes of orange and lemon.

Crisp but not prickly carbonation, light bodied, clean and dry finish. Nicely smooth on draft.

Again, there are no surprises here, not outstanding for the style but one could certainly do worse.

I picked up this bottle after seeing this in the 1001 beers you have to drink book. I like Wits in general, so this seems like a good one to try.

I poured the wit into a fluted glass, and I immediately get a bunch of head. The coloring is perfect. This is a very light colored beer.

The smell and flavor is excellent. I really enjoy the coriander and orange peel. The flavor really feel light across my pallatte. Bruxelles is not overly complicated, which doesn't affect my satisfaction for this beer.

I recommend this wit. It is one of my favorites, now.

Slightly cloudy platinum white with furry white head. Light notes of lemon zest, herbs and yeast on the nose.
Crackery wheat, more lemon, then grassy hops with a pinch of coriander.
Chardonnay finish and spicy linger. Light, crisp, round.

Nothing really to distinguish this, but nothing wrong either. Not trying to be more than a refreshing quencher, and lacks the cloyingness and headache-inducing ABV of Hoegaadren.

Belgian lawnmower beer.
