Man what a find on my House of 1,000 dollar shelf. Never had a french Witbier before. Into a pint glass.

A - Well can't knock it a solid 1/4 inch of bubbly head atop of a hazy bright orange yellow beer. Big carbonation bubbles floating.
S - Well thats different the orange smell is quite candy like with a mild spice edge. Smell is balanced with a mild wheat edge.
T - Well for a blue bottle I expected skunked mess but I will be dammed its a great representation of the style! Mild lemon and strong orange candy sweetness meets some wheat flavors and quite a crisp finish. Yeast is not dry or cloying I quite enjoy it.
M - Like stated before its crisp, clean and light to medium bodied with a smooth finish.

Overall its probably gone but damn I should have picked up a few more bottles. Quite a refreshing beer miles above blue moon.

This beer is, quite frankly, just plain delicious.

Served on tap it has a big frothy head and a slightly cloudy pale yellow/gold appearance.

The nose is citrus but not over the top, at this point I was thinking "Well this'll be a nice summer sip".

The taste is amazing, white peach dominates with layers of dried citrus peel and cloves. The inherent sweetness that many witbiers have is hinted at but it doesn't have any cloying after taste. The first sip leads to second gulp and very quick re-order.

The finish is long and clean and leaves you wanting more. I had three in rapid succession at my first sitting and two in a short time the next.

Highly, very highly, recommended.

Please note, these ratings apply only to the "on tap" product. I recently had it in bottle and would probably drop a full point off the ratings

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pale golden hued with a quarter inch white head. Aroma of pale wheat is faint and somewhat tart. The mouth is sharp and crisp. Moderate carbonation. The flavor is somewhat sweet with a faint tart apple taste that blends with the pale wheat. That's the coriander,but I've never had that sort of tart note from that spice.
