3.29/5 rDev -12.5%
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.

3.66/5 rDev -2.7%
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.

(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.
