4.6/5  rDev +15.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Served in a tulip glass, poured from a 12 oz. bottle.

A - Perfectly cloudy orange amber with a lovely fluffy head that leaves oodles of lacing

S - A joy to smell. Lots of fresh, bright coriander and orange comprise the meat of this heady aroma, backed up by cloves...and dare I say a hint of banana? Okay, who put hefe yeast in my witbier?

T - Faint bitter, flowery hops back up the fruity, wheaty, spicy taste. Excellently balanced.

M - The carbonation is active and foamy, lending bite and smoothness to the light yet full mouthfeel. Slightly chewy.

D - If it weren't for the elevated ABV, I'd drink several of these at a time. It's just so easy drinking and tasty.

Overall - I might have found a new favorite wit, even if it is slightly boozy. For sessioning, I'll stick to Allagash or Hoegaarden, but this is a definite occasional treat.

Very solid Wit Beer. Not as good as Allagash, but better than most.

A: Cloudy, pale lemon body, that needs an aggressive pour to fully form its intense fine bubbled, lasting and lacing head.

S: Soft and muted, but no false notes. Very belgian in style with flower blossoms, orange, coriander, yeast against sugar cookie backdrop.

T: Follows the smell but more intense. I didnt mind the double strength. Big wit, filled with citrus flower blossoms, lemon peel, perfume, spice, yeast, coriander, and plenty of pepper in the finish. Pleasing. Clean.
MF: More body seems to come with the alcohol, but refreshing and good food beer. More serious than most wits.

Must try.

Thanks to some friends, I went through a couple sixers of this last week on vacation in Riverhead.

This wit looks exactly as I hope, traditional in every sense. It's a very pale white gold color with a light haziness through the body. The head is ivory white, soft, fluffy and dense, and it stands just over one finger tall. It lowers but very slowly, staying firm enough that it holds up for the duration and leaves behind plenty of patching and webbing as it does.
The nose is nice, with a soft spiciness, plenty of coriander and a clove-like note along with white pepper, orange zest, and a touch of lemon along with some herb over a base of dry malts like cracked wheat.
The flavor brings everything out even more; this is a great witbier at about double strength, and I can't help thinking they got exactly what they were going for. I'm not sure what more people could expect out of this beer. It's not perfect, but it is fantastic.
The flow is excellent, and there's a fluffy, creamy softness that keeps up in the light-medium body all the way. Each sip is bright, zesty and crisp while being completely smooth as well.
