12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a semi-hazy golden color. The head is a finger high (white in shade) with crap retention for the style. Only tiny splotches of lacing are left on the glass.

S: This has a nice scent of orange peel, which is seemingly augmented by candied sugar. The two notes coexist quite well. There are subtle touches of coriander floating around, along with (dare I say?) Fruity Pebbles. All in all, a decently fruity witbier, but little to amaze the senses.

T: The flavor profile is much the same as the nose. Mild orange peel opens things up, with a closing hit of coriander to finish this off. As I continue to sip it, I realize what's missing: a good wheat character. The adjuncts are handled well, but it needs more wheat flavor for this to succeed.

M: Rather thin for a witbier. I'm missing some of the soft creaminess I like in the style - instead I get a slender coarseness to the texture. Having said that, it is well carbonated and easy to drink.

O: Not bad. It's not entirely successful, though: it's thin, and suffers from the insipidness other average witbiers tend to have. It'll get the job done, but there are a lot of better wits out there.
