look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Sparkly and bubbly in the New Belgium snifter. Like a Lager in color and spritziness. A nice head on the glass. Mild aroma of coriander, with more in the nose. slightly tart with a taste of something too much like chamomile.

The spice is quite prominent, and seems to be a little too much of a good thing. A touch of dried orange and lots of the spice with some Hefeweizen wheaty esters. LIght bodied yet plenty malty. No hint of hoppy taste or bitterness, either. The flavor wears a little on the palate. Not one I can drink much of.

From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido.

Poured a gorgeous cloudy golden color with two fingers of fluffy white head that slowly receded and left abundant lacing down the glass. A beautiful beer and very true to style. Scents of honey, yeasty, grainy wheat bread, a perfume-like aromatic quality, hints of orange zest and slight sweet spices and light notes of white pepper. A pleasant aroma that is fairly true to style with a bit more honey character than is usual and a bit less in the way of spice aromas. Good and true to style, but not the best example of a witbier aroma. Taste begins pleasantly sweet, with notes of honey, a slight sour tang and a nice orange zest and citrus presence. This moves into a more spicy middle with notes of coriander, white pepper and low levels of herbal/spicy hops joining a backbone of sweet malt, bready malt and a refreshing tang. Finish is semi-dry with notes of coriander, white pepper, hints of orange zest, bready wheat malt and a slight sourness, not intense at all. Aftertaste is coriander and white pepper with some wheat. A fairly good flavor profile that is nicely representative of the style. Refreshing, with a nice balance between malt, spice and orange peel flavors. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, creamy and smooth with a slight effervescence from moderate carbonation. Extremely easy to drink as a result and quite pleasant in feel. Very true to style. Overall this is a good example of a witbier. It hits the style quite well all categories and is a refreshing, pleasant beer.
