Pours a hazy orange with a frothy white head. Smell is mostly orange peel, lemon zest, coriander, and some yeast notes. The taste has a good amount of spice, the citrus comes through as well, along with a yeast kick. A medium mouthfeel, the spice gives some harshness to the tongue. Overall a tasty beer, if it was a bit smoother I think I would have enjoyed it more.

12oz bottle (no date) served in a pilsner glass.
Appearance: Very hazy to cloudy yellow-orange amber. Off white persistent thin foam across the top the whole way down the glass. Occasional thick sheets of lacing that slowly slid back down and joined the original foam.
Smell: Grainy and yeasty, mostly yeasty.
Taste: Wheat tang, spiciness, part American wheat ale, part Wit, part Hefeweizen. The latter I got every now and then in the malt with a hint of clove and hefe type malt sweetness. I couldn't pull out the lemon zest from the other flavors, and at times it seemed like the beers dominant flavors changed with each sip. Certainly interesting if not consistent in flavor.
Mouthfeel: Spicy on the tongue, otherwise nothing special and just a hair above water in thickness.
Overall / Drinkability: Went well with a chef's salad, and I would probably take another if offered. An interesting take on a Wit ale - much darker than I was expecting, and not as light and airy in mouthfeel, but good. I've had better Wits, and I've had worse.

12oz brown bottle, no freshness date.
Cloudy peach color, towering head dissipates to a healthy looking lace.
Aromas of citrus peel, coriander, grassy, peppery, nutty yeast, and fresh baked crackers.
Smooth, big crispness with a creamy backdrop. Lemon zest, peppercorn, coriander, dried grass, nutty grain, orange peel and a faint plummy alcohol show off its complexities.
A little bit more body and dark than the typical Witbier but nothing that deviated from the style's path. A good Witbier to be had here.
