Corked and caged 750 ML bottle. Served chilled into a Blanche de Chambly glass (I'm a geek).
Appearance: Slightly cloudy straw colored liquid. An almost volcanic head with decent retention and lacing. I've seen better lacing from wits before. It could have been a bit hazier, too. And I did agitate the bottle.
Smell: Coriander and lemon aromas are quite prominent, followed by some light malty sweetness.
Taste: Vibrant splash of coriander/pepper spiciness and lemony citrus flavors immediately followed by some sweet flavors of the wheat malt. Faint traces of other citrus flavors such as orange and grapefruit. Also faint traces of clove lingering in the background. The taste sensation is very fast, about 1-2 seconds. No appreciable aftertaste. I'd like it if the taste stuck around a little more.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, clean, refreshing. My mouth waters in remembrance of this beer.
Drinkability: This is probably one of the more drinkable beers I have ever had. Great session beer for hot and humid DC summers.

A: Golden, slightly yellow color; huge head!
S: Powerfully sweet, citrus/orange scent
T: Very light; Obvious low ABV; Extremely orange-y but the aftertaste isn't amazing
M: Soft bite which fades; nothing exceptional
Though pouring this gorgeous beverage looks incredibly promising, the taste and feel seem too light to leave an impression. The orange is almost overwhelming. The first kick is light but great, and the aftertaste is greater. It's all the steps in the middle that make this drink lackluster.

Hazy blonde color. Small head resting.
Rough spicing, coriander, orange peel, hints of sage, lemon rind, and tangy wheat.
Soft wheat, citrus peel, lemon, coriander, yeast esters, and faint green apple.
Deliciously light and easy. Carbonated moderately. Nice.
