look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Big white head floats on top of hazy gold. The high carbonation is very evident. Nose is overflowing with orange, coriander, and spicy yeast, just like it should be. Sweet grapes and honey come through first followed by orange and lemon. Mix of pepper and a touch of bitterness from the hops at the end. There might even be a touch of anise.

Light, crisp, refreshing. All the familiar flavors of a Belgian Witbier, with a few different ones to make it more interesting. Plus, at only 4.8% ABV, you can easily enjoy several of these. I’m quite impressed.

3.45/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bottle into a Hoegarden glass tumbler.

A very white and gaseous sudsy white head, shampoo like in appearance, settles into a thin collar. Body is a cloudy dull orange.

Nose doesn't bring much excitement. Mix of orange spice and malt. Some zest. Theater movie popcorn diacetyl just a little, with some dry grain action. Not too bad.

In the palate a very noticeable sweet orange, not unlike the curacao that mentions. Incredibly soda fizzy texture that detracts. Malt and chewy wheat component is not really coming to notice.

Overall a nice orange sense to this in the palate that doesn't come across as fake, but it's missing the classic wheat body I associate with this style. It is drinkable though.

A: Clear body. White nice 1 finger head.

S: Belgian yeast, orange, coriander and some bread.

T: Delicious and subtle Belgian yeast. This is a much more sessionable witbier that isn't over the top with phenols. Good stuff.

M: Crisp and full bodied. Nice and thick.

O: This beer is awesome. I love the body and the subdued Belgian yeast qualities. Great.

Serving type: on-tap

On draft at DuClaw in Bowie, MD.

The beer is surprisingly clear for a witbier. Very little, if any, haze about it. A half inch of white head rests atop the beer, leaving ample lacing in it's wake. The aroma offers banana, spice (particularly coriander), malt. Smells like a witbier for sure. The flavor is relatively simple and straightforward. The spice component is there, but by no means dominates the beer. Smooth on the palate, light bodied, and easy drinking. Not the biggest flavor, but mild in nature and easy to throw back a pint. Overall, good stuff and worth a try.
