2.98/5  rDev -13.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

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.

4.8% ABV from the label

A: Fairly clear golden body with a good amount of carbonation. It's slightly hazy but not much. Thick white fluffy head fades down to a short white layer on top.

S: Nice fruity nose of orange followed by the strong scent of coriander. It is very pleasant to smell. No hop aroma, no grain aroma.

T: The taste mimics the scent. There is a slight tinge of fruitiness followed by a fairly strong coriander flavor. A slight bitterness and faint earthy noble hop flavor. No grain presence and no perceivable yeast character. It is a very clean tasting beer. I wouldn't call it outstanding but it is very good.

M: Very light bodied. Just enough to bring in the flavor and quickly wash it away. Very drinkable. Easily a beer that I could have multiple bottles of. Partly this is due to how clean the beer finishes and how unobtrusive it is on the palate overall.

O: Overall it is a very clean wit. It's a very refreshing and light enjoyable wit, making it extremely drinkable. I wish I would have bought more of these. It's not the most full-flavored wit but it is very nice. It lacks a lot of yeast character and grain flavor (wheat) that comes from a nice fresh witbier, leaning extensively on the coriander for flavor. I think that people who enjoy a good wit will still enjoy this beer, as coriander is a staple flavor in this style. I would buy it again without question, as I am a fan of its clean flavor and delicious coriander.
