A simple 12 ounce can makes the house of the Florida Cracker. On to the beer:

A soapy head sits on top before fading into a lace while underneath, a pee yellow beer is waiting to be consumed. The soft and sweet aroma of this witbier features aromas of orange peel, coriander, and the sweetness of oats, so at this moment this beer is spot on per style. What I wasn't expecting was the spicy flavor of this witbier, and it makes a bold statement and pleasant contrast to the bits of orange and sweet oats. In fact, the spicy character brings an appeitizing dry finish with a linger of fruity and spicy. It also seems to add zing to the carbonation, further adding to the enjoyment.

Just what I needed for a warm afternoon. Smiles all around this BA after I finished the can.
