look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
12oz bottle, best by 03-02-12, poured into a Tulip glass.
Appearance: Poured a slightly hazy pale golden yellow with a white head. Lots of bubbles coming up through the glass. White foam filled with plenty of larger bubbles, but not very persistent - left just a ring and a thin skin of an island in the middle. Not too much lacing either.
Smell: Initial pour gave off a yeasty and sweet smell, but as it settled down and warmed up a tad, the smells were more of mild malt, orange peel (faint), and something musty. A good swirl yields a sweet grainy smell, like something freshly baked.
Taste: Wonderfully twangy wheat flavor mixed in with honey and orange and just a hint of something spicy at the end. Very tasty brew this one.
Mouthfeel: Good carbonation on the tongue, but not scouring - just right really. Crisp but highly refreshing - goes down very easy but doesn't linger on the teeth. Does it make sense for me to say that it's light in the mouth but not watery? Because that is how I would describe it. Quite nice.
Drinkability / Overall: A very nice brew - light but full of flavor and I could easily have another one or two. Went well with a meal (Asian-style white fish and broccoli over rice) and I could have this all by itself. Very good beer.

12 oz bottle poured into flute glass. Pours a bright golden color with a good sized white head that dissipates quickly. Lots of cascading bubbles coming to the top throughout the experience.
Smell is citrusy, other light fruits, maybe apricot, coriander, and some additional spices.
Taste is clean with a good balance of hops and wheat along with a strong citrus/orange peel flavor. Finishes with a combination of the fruity yeast and some fresh black peppercorns.
Overall, a great witbier, very refreshing, a great beer in the warmer weather months, but also enjoyable year-round.
