Poured from a bottle into a New Belgian tulip. The pour is a hazy light orange color with about a finger of fine white head that dissipates down to a thin lacy surface covering. On the nose I get faint aromas of sweet oranges, bread, and lemon tea.
The beer is light-bodied and has a slightly thin feel that seems appropriate to the style. The flavor is fruity and sweet up front with notes of honey and oranges. It develops to a nice mild grainy tartness at mid-palate with wheat cracker and lemon tones and finishes somewhat dry and herbal, leaving tea-like flavors lingering in the mouth. No diacetyl or other objectionable flavors. Very refreshing and easy to drink. The tart lemon-like notes and herbal finish become a bit more pronounced as the beer warms.
Overall, a nice example of the style, but downgraded somewhat due to the price. Witbiers of comparable quality can be found at lower prices than the $10.99 I paid for a 4-pack.
