This beer actually took quite awhile to pour, I do not know if I was a little to greedy on the poor, but the first half the bottle created a head that filled basically the entire glass. But now that the whole bottle is poured its a pale gold which is slightly foggy (think a lighter colored apple cider), with a decent sized and slow receding white head.
The Aroma is full fledged Belgian style yeast, and apples, with a decent bit of orange hitting in there (must be the added Curacao).
The taste is quite nice, and has many different layers and stages to it, at first its a very yeasty bread, and later a blast of apple cider hits, and it fades in a sparkling apple juice kind of finish.
Mouth feel and drinkability are slightly better than average, smooth and easy going, but nothing has me running to buy a case.

750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, best before 7/17/2015. Pours fairly hazy pale gold color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big apple juice, pear, white grape, orange peel, coriander, wheat, bread, clove, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of apple juice, spice, malt, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of apple juice, pear, white grape, orange peel, coriander, wheat, bread, clove, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of apple juice, pear, white grape, orange peel, coriander, wheat, bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of apple juice, spice, wheat, and yeast ester flavors; with very nice robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice fruit flavored witbier style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of apple juice, malt, spice, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
