Drank from a 12 fl. oz. can acquired as an extra in a trade with mps
Served in a pint glass
The beer poured a cloudy straw yellow and was topped by a frothy, two-finger tall, off-white crown. Drippy streaks of lacing coated the glass and lasted throughout the session. The head slowly dropped to a thick, foamy cap.
The aroma was intense and spot-on for the style. Loads of banana and spices. Clove and coriander were most apparent. Good dose of lemon and orange peel. Quite wheaty. Strong Belgian yeast notes came through as well. Touch of candi sugar-like sweetness. All in all, crisp, zesty and really pleasant.
The flavor profile started out really solid. A pale, doughy malt backbone anchored the beer on the front end. Tons of zesty lemon appeared in the center. Super spicy. Clove was most noticeable. Lots of wheaty character. Touch of orange peel. The beer took on an intensely bitter, lemon rind and mineral quality on the finish. Pithy and dry with hints of tea-like hops and subtle metallic notes.
On the palate, the liquid was medium bodied and contained a zippy, spritzy effervescence. Creamy, slick and smooth.
This witbier really got me thinking about the warm weather months ahead. Although the finish was a bit strange, I really enjoyed the intensity of this beer and would rank it as one of the better examples of the style.
