Prince Edward Island (Canada)
4/5 rDev +2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
The look is OK, standard witbier appearance; a slightly hazy, flat yellow. There would have been more head had I head a different or taller glass. As it stood, the head was good anyway. It receded to a fluffy skim that left solid patches of lacing on the sides of the glass.
The nose is more subtle than I expected this time, and not that enticing. I expected / wanted banana and spice, and just got cloves/spices and... rubber? Something very faint like that, anyway.
The taste, thankfully, has more oomph. I like it more this time than the first time I tried it (not that much). I get biscuit with nutmeg, and a hint of banana.
The feel is creamy and smooth, but with a bit of a watery fee in the finish, maybe due to the alcohol.
It's a good example of the witbier style. Compared to a similar style, like a hefeweizen or a weissbier, I like it more than a König Ludwig Weißbier, but not as much as a Weihenstephaner.

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.
