DATE TASTED: August 31, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Schneider Edel-Weisse pokal... OCCASION: celebrating Penn State's first win of 2013...APPEARANCE: hazy, almost dirty sediment-laden pale straw yellow body; head is glacially stacked; its lacing is like well-patterned sea foam--a beguiling start... AROMA: banana, pepper, and clove--the holy trinity of wheat beer scents--is present and strong; honey is bottle-boasted but not as apparent...PALATE: medium-bodied, active on and under the tongue; spritzy, as a seltzer or a soda; refreshing...TASTE: lemony zest is first to stake its claim; pepper is also prominent sipping through its head adds to the experience... OVERALL: mellow and refreshing; little complexity, and little complaint there; the bottle is mid-ranged in price, and in a six-pack would be more than enjoyable....

Got in a trade with swingracex. 750 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy pale golden amber color with a 2 finger foamy and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of pear, grape, apple, lemon zest, orange zest, coriander, pepper, clove, floral, wheat, honey, bread, and herbal earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of yeast esters with spices and a good amount of malt balance; and nice strength. Taste of pear, apple, lemon zest, orange zest, coriander, pepper, clove, wheat, honey, floral, bread, and herbal earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, citrus zest, coriander, wheat, bread, clove, honey, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of yeast ester and spice flavors; with a moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with no warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent witbier. All around great balance, complexity, and robustness of flavors for 4.8%; and extremely smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
