I thought this was a new offering, I guess not.
A spicy, sweet, yeasty aroma with some floral hops.
The taste is good. It's dry and tickles the palate.
The spices and flavor for that matter are lean and washed out.
This wasn't as good as I thought but overall it was good.

Poures a thick head that dissipates slowly. Light golden color, slightly hazy.

Smells of spicy phenols mixed with fruitiness. With less foam I get some banana, and in the background a bit of light malt character

Tastes of banana, peach and similar fruity flavours. Sweetness up front, but finishes medium dry with a medium low bitterness from the carbonation as well as the hops.

Medium high carbonation which fits the beer very well, after a while the carbonation drops and the beer feels smooth.

Overall a a well balanced brew that tastes of fruity and spicy esters. The medium dry finish gives it a great drinkability. A great belgian beer sub 5 abv

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pale semi-hazy yellow brew; Perceived effervescence is high. Head is small with little persistence or lacing. Appearance closely resembles most witbiers.

Smell: Medium intensity. Notes of banana, clove and grain. Slight funk and barnyard notes on the backend.

Taste: Lively, pleasant, overall profile follows on the noseclosely with added complexity of bubblegum, flowers and more pronounced grainy notes.

Mouthfeel: Medium to medium high carbonation. Medium light bodied. Decent finish. Clovey aftertaste. Acidic bite.

Overall: A decent effort; It is quaffable but still a let-down when it comes to all-around complexity and balance.
