A - pours a light yellow with a slight haze. Quickly dissipating white head of two fingers. Low visible carbonation coming up.

S - zesty and summery. Coriander and a little citrus in there, lemony. Nice nose.

T - kind of soapy to be honest. Light citrus. Almost saison like. Champagne yeast perhaps? Malt profile is nice, not over the top but adds appropriate sweetness.

M - light body, drinkable summer beer. Smooth going down. Good carb levels.

O - decent. Good Belgian style white. Not a homerun.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours out straw yellow in color and is not a brew you can see through. Nice one finger white head with little retention and no lacing that I see.

Smell is of like nice Belgian yeast like a wit although it is a little different. There seems to be a little sweetness from the grains and the yeast. Really no hops here.

Taste is great and almost like a Belgian wit although a little bit sweeter. My first few cans were not my favorite but I learned to love this beer and traded for lots more. The yeast is not really like a Belgian wit or a hefe but it is pretty close.

Mouthfeel is fairly thin as expected from this style of beer.

Overall this is one of my favorite beers that they can. I really like this beer.
