4.22/5  rDev +17.5%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours a very light gold, deeper straw color with only about a finger's worth, if that, of creamy white head. Body is cloudy and well carbonated. Retention is fairly poor and there's a decent amount of lacing.

S - Smell is definitely spiced up with a wonderful bouquet of coriander, orange peel, citrus and lemon notes. Peppery, but complemented well with the citrus zest.

T - Taste has a nice combination of bready yeast, fruit, and spices. The front and mid palate are full of refreshing citurs, while the finish is nice and dry and spicy. Almost no hint of alcohol at all in this one.

M - Mouthfeel is light and popping with carbonation. Finish is crisp and dry which really helps the flavors pop as well.

D - Drinkability is high. The flavor profile is spot-on, and with almost no hint of alcohol, I could see this being a day-long beer during a sweltering summer day.

3.94/5  rDev +9.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

(LOT 444 - best by July 2014 - poured into a British pint)

A: yellow like the first rays of the morning sun... pretty dang clear for a Wit - still a slight haze... very little head - wonder why that is - doesn't look right... btw - the bottle label (as are the rest of their labels) is right out of the ol' Weyerbacher portfolio, not quite as wonderfully cheezy though

S: the smell is pretty textbook, very appealing... nice balance of doughy wheat, toasted cereal malt, mild coriander, and light citrus overtones

T: once again, pretty good up front... the brightness of the outer skin of the citrus peel seems to come out more... bit of a penny-metallic twang at the back... coriander sits calmly in the middle with a moderate biscuity pale malt flavor underneath... mild bitterness, seeming to wear a shade of coriander husk... pretty dry, lacking a bit of depth, but still surprisingly flavorful

M: at first, a tad thin... still feels a tad thin and flat by the end - wonderfully crush-able though

O: i gotta admit - actually pretty well done... was growing on me by the end
