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

I poured a bottle into a pilsner glass.

Appearance- Cloudy golden-orange color with two fingers of foamy head. Nice amount of lace.

Smell- Strong aroma of wheat, citrus, and spices.

Taste- Sweet wheat malt flavor at the start that turn into a fruity citrus halfway through, and ends with a big coriander spice finish.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied and smooth with an average amount of carbonation.

Overall- A fairly good beer but just a tad too much spice at the finish.

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

A - Hazy gold with a orangish hue. Large, foamy, creamy, white head. Pretty good retention leaving patches of lace.

S - Loads of spice and fruit. Citrus, curaçao, coriander, and banana. Sweet with just a kick of spice. Some wheaty aroma. Not a typical Wit.

T - Loads of fruitiness. Banana, pineapple, pear, mango, and orange. Curaçao takes over mid-sip. Some spice (coriander and pepper mostly). Some honey, and sweet wheaty malt. Touches of vainilla and peach.

M - Medium body with average carbonation. Pretty smooth.

D - A little too much fruit and spice flavors. Not difficult to drink this glass, but I couldn't see having more.

Notes: Interesting Wit that seems a bit on the gimmicky side for me (with all the fruit and spice especially with the curaçao taking over). It's not bad, but it ended up tasting a bit like a mixed cocktail.

Poured this one into a standard pint glass, and the beer produced about a two finger thick pillow soft looking head of bright white, and the body was golden white with a mild haze The head retention is impeccable.

The aroma is of sweet honey, coriander, original bubblegum and gooey caramel.

Taste wise it's like chewing on some Topps bubblegum, with maybe a touch of blood orange character... Very sugary.

Feels full in body, with mild carbonation. Somewhat oily slick, which keeps a palate moist at first, but then the alcohol cuts in at the very end to dry the palate.

A great double wit IMHO, and I'd recommend this to anybody, beer drinker or not.
