3.29/5  rDev -11.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Hazy light golden color, with a moderate, persistent white head, which retains well. The lacing is fine and scattered.

Aroma: Modest aroma of coriander, wheat, understated herbal hops, and a slight mustiness.

Taste: Opens with mild wheat malt, and a flourish of coriander. As the taste progresses, some earthiness from the wheat is apparent. Late in the taste, there is a modest herbal hop presence. The finish is graceful and mild.

Mouth feel: Light body, with soft carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: A pleasant, drinkable, and somewhat understated example of the Witbier style.

Presentation Packaged in a custom cobalt blue glass bottle (!) with a pry-off crown, served in a new Belgium Brewing chalice.

3.46/5  rDev -7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

(Served in a tulip glass)

A- This beer has a hazy glowing lemon yellow body with a sticky soft peaked snow white head and a gentle carbonation gliding to the surface.

S- The big perfume aroma of apricots and some softer club soda notes finish with a papery aroma.

T- The faint peach stone note leads to a soft dry tartness in the finish. There is a dry flowery taste that lingers with a soft little carbonic acid note.

M- This beer has a light mouthfeel with a texture that feels very flat on the tongue and is a bit odd.

O- This beer has some nice apricot and peach characters that are soft enough to be very drinkable but still has a sort of artificial quality to them. It was nice to drink a 6-pack of this but there is something that is just a little off, and I would prefer a more natural yeast ester profile.

Bought it for $9 a 12-Pack in the US. Not sure anyone knew what the f___ it was and it ended up in the bargain bin. Darned shame except for me finding this gem. Not only is the bottle really cool, its contents are as good if not maybe a little better that Hoogarden. Really nice balance of acidity and the usual but not too overpowering wheat beer suspects coriander, clove, and nutmeg.
