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.

Too wheaty and citrusy for me.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

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.
