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.

12oz bottle poured into am Ommegang chalice.

A: Pours a hazy golden color with dark sediment particles that settle on the bottom of the glass. Creamy white head retains well enough. Thin rings of lacing.

S: Yeasty and peppery with a healthy dose of orange peel. Lightly musty. Dusty and bready wheat.

T: Orange peel is front and center, but a strong peppery coriander flavor quickly follows it. Creamy and doughy wheat. Tame yeast and very mild phenols. Hollow hop bitterness. Touch of alcohol. Wheaty finish with trailing pepper and orange peel.

M: Medium-light body. Sturdy creamy and frothy texture. Ample carbonation scrubs a bit and adds a refreshing bite. Light peppery heat.

O: As the name suggests, what we have here is a bold, dosed up witbier. Big in flavor, especially with the coriander and orange peel, but still tame enough to drink easily. It's an enjoyable brew.
