Bottle from Big Bear Cafe in D.C. Consumed during a jazz trio gig I had there.
Typical witbier appearance. Cloudy body with a thick white cap. The aroma brings coriander, light spice, orange peel. Pretty easy drinking. Citrusy flavor with a hint of pepper. I enjoyed this.

Bottle poured into a pint glass. Nice golden hazy color typical of the style. Thin head that quickly disappeared with no lacing. Could be due to the fact that i served it a bit too cold.
Good fruity aroma with coriander, wheat and orange.
Taste was really good and refreshing. Would be great on a warm day. Paired it with bratwurst, which was probably not ideal, but it workers.
Mouth feel was amazing. Very creamy and full unlike many of the mass produced wheat beers. This was definitely the beer's strong point.
Overall enjoyable and refreshing. I'll remember this one, come late Spring.

A hazy chunky yeast in a straw gold fluid. Appreciable head that gently fades. Not much if any lace. The nose if full of apples a touch of grape and wheat malt. Taste is very traditional with a good mild lemony sourness and spices. Low bitterness and a dry clean finish that leaves notes of malt and lemon lingering. Feel is just heavy enough to be above water but light enough to be crisp and refreshing with a lively carbonation. Silky on the tongue. Drinkability is off the charts and so perfect at this time of year that it is all I can do t keep from scoring it higher. Just a perfect and classic Wit.

Incredibly pale golden color, massive fluffy and craggy bright white head. Lots of coriander, orange peel, and bright citrus fruit on the nose. Smells incredible.
Sweet coriander upfront followed by rich wheaty and graininess. Coarse full mouth mouthfeel. For how dirty and unarranged these beautiful flavors are the slightly peppery finish cleans the palate making for a super clean finish. Bright citric acidity and excellent balance. My only complaint is that at certain moments it thins out in the mouth. Overall awesome though.

Poured into a Green Flash snifter. No freshness date.
A- Pours a slightly hazy gold color with a full inch of head that retains decently before dissolving to an 1/8 inch. Above-average lacing.
S- Sweet with lots of orange and spice. A bit perfumey in a wheat context.
T- Refreshing flavors of citrus and coriander. Very sweet, but not cloying. The yeast works its way into the profile but in more subtle of a way than the rest of the ingredients.
M- Lively and crisp with medium-high carbonation leading the way. A bit of a spice bite and a light body.
O- Very tasty and exemplary of the style.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours cloudy straw with a very large bubbly white head that dissipates fairly quickly, but leaves a little bit of lacing. Smells of citrus primarily, not much else but a little bit of wheat. Tastes of wheat, the active yeast gives it the normal taste of a white ale. This light bodied beer has good carbonation, and a clean smooth finish. Overall, a decent beer.

The first couple of bottles were consumed too warm. Once the beer was properly chilled it was pretty tasty. A very good unfiltered beer and very well balanced.
Consumed on several occassions and with different food accompanyments. Goes well with white meats.
