Poured into a glass tumbler from a 12 oz. bottle.
A - Clear yellowish orange, very thin head that dissapates almost immediately
S - Lots of bright apple and spice, by far the best facet of this one.
T - Not really sweet, but possessing a lot of apple and spice. Very little actual hops or yeast in the backing to suggest it's a beer.
M - Thin, with a large, tempermental fizz. Not very endearing.
D - Very drinkable, if not the the disappointing taste.
Overall - It almost feels like slightly darker light beer with apples and coriander. It's certainly not terrible, but the flavors are so unbalanced it doesn't make for a memorable experience.

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.
