Can that was muled in a car from Florida back to Maryland and it spent a whole week in the trunk in the Florida heat of June. With that said this was a very tasty beer and seemed like an authentic Belgian. I thought it came across more as a hybrid of a Saison / Belgian Blonde ale and not your typical witbier. Perhaps the 100 degree heat changed it. Whether it did or not, its a very solid Belgian beer and feels like 7% and not 5.5%.

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

Pours a cloudy orange color with a nice head that takes its time dissipating leaving some nice lacing in a clear plastic cup (it's all I had while on vacation by the pool).

Smell is really nice, Banana and Clove. Smells of some of the good hefes from Germany that I've had.

Taste is really good as well. I get the clove, banana, and wheat malts. Really awesome taste.

Mouthfeel is nice and carbonated. I can see where all that awesome head came from.

Overall, this is a really good beer. Reminds me a lot of a good German hefe that I had not too long ago. I am on vacation and this beer is not available locally. Guess I need to stock up before I head home.
