look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours straw golden color with a thick foamy head. The head dissipates after a few minutes with effervescent bubbles rising to the top. Smell of Belgian yeasts and coriander. There is a slightly sour component to it. Strong malty, banana taste up front, follow by moderate carbonation, with a spicy coriander taste at the end. Very refreshing beer. High carbonation. Witbiers were my first foray into craft beers (Hoegaarden), but I have moved on to other tastes, mainly hoppy IPAs and Pale Ales. This beer provides a refreshing, nostalgic feel, though.

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!
