4.05/5 rDev +8.3%
A - Light pale yellow, hazier than a motha. One finger white head.
S - Huge orange peel and coriander notes.
T - Tons of orange flavor, solid bit of wheat sweetness. Orange creamsicle. No hop character. Bit of spicy - ester-y yeast character.
M - Medium bodied, and creamy.
O - Great brew, one of the more intensely adjunct forward wits I've had.

Bottle: an embossed crystal-blue 330mL bottle with a standard macro label. The hand-grip bottle and the frankly awesome blue takes it well past the half-way mark.
Appearance: pours a slightly hazy light straw yellow with a persistent white hea that hangs about at one-finger. Fine carbonation and brilliant, thick lacing.
Aroma: the usual witbier aromas of citrus, coriander and plenty of wheat. Decent.
Taste: again a reasonable witbier - wheat with coriander, and a light citrus over the top. Not mind-blowing, but quite pleasant.
Aftertaste: a touch of wheat fug with some hop bitterness. A touch of yeast too.
Mouth feel: very nice at this price - better than pretty much any witbiers at AU$50 a case of 24 x 330mL bottles.
Overall: a pretty good witbier - not the most amazing I have ever had, but for AU$50 a case of 24 x 330mL bottles (2014), this one is well worth it. A good all-rounder.

A very basic Witbier. Poured from a "Noxema blue" colored 11.2 oz bottle into a Weisen glass. Good size white head, spotty lacing and average head retention.
Aroma is malty, not much in the way of yeast or lemon. There is a little wheat bitterness.
Taste is similar. Malty, a little sweet, some balancing wheat bitterness and a little coriander.
Mouthfeel is light and crisp. A good summertime thirst quencher but nothing exceptional flavor-wise.
