crazy you pay over 20 bucks for a 250 milliliter bottle, or that a brewery would ask you to do such or thing, or even offer such an absurd package, but at the end of the day, we all lust for italian craft beer right now, and we just paid for this, so whatever on that front. its hazy and not all that frothy, thick looking, golden and steadfast. the nose is spiced, coriander maybe, herbal, yeasty, more belgian than italian, thick on the malt front, paste textured wheat sugar, cool. way more heavy in feel than any of the wit beers ive had from belgium. zesty flavor and aroma, grain is fresh, and the yeast is cool. i wanted this to be more distinct, even bretty, but i like all the beers these guys make, and eventually you pay the money to try them all, but this package is ridiculous and offensive in some ways. yes, we still buy it, but man, they are rooting us here. grassy and hoppy and big for the style, but i like it for being different. a beer i will ever buy again due to price, but am thankful to have enjoyed.

Good looking Wit, hazy straw yellow, good short lasting head of foam, some lacing.

Strong coriander and orange peel in the smell, with a bit of cloves. Spicy and fruity.

The taste has everything I said in the smell but not nearly as vibrant. Big disappointment because it "was" promising.

Light bodied and carbonation, which is fine.

Decent but not worthy of a repurchase.

Nice witbier os an opaque ocher color a foam that vanishes rapidly leaving a whitey thin lace.
Smell and taste are full of coriander, used as main ingredient in this beer. Orange tones are easy to distinguish and recalls some tangerine. Malt tones are at good level.
This beer is really similar to Hoegaarden. I would say is has a more opaque color a bigger maltiness/body - I prefer this way!
Mouthfeel is also a bit efervescent.
