Poured into a pint glass.

A: Slightly hazy golden color with some particles and two-finger, white, fizzy head that lasted a couple of minutes. Not much lacing.

S: Fruit and grass.

T: Moderate sweetness and light bitterness. Light grain flavor. Some citrus. Not bad.

M: Light bodied with fizzy carbonation. Crisp.

O: This is an average witbier. I was expecting something a little better from Unibroue, but it's not bad.

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a pint glass

Appearance: Poured gold with some cloudiness starts with a thick head that disappears in minutes into a paper thin line that laces nicely as you drink.

Smell: Fruity, citrus, and sour grass with undertones of wheat and yeast

Taste: wheat stays on the tongue but my pallete soon becomes overwhelmed with lemony sour grassiness that stays.

Mouthfeel: overwhelming carbonation reminds me of perrier water

Overall: The sour grassiness and carbonation overwhelms this beer for me. I'd much prefer the complexity and bubble gum flavor of hoegaarden.
