Poured from a 22 bottle into a snifter. Purchased for a dollar at Gasbarro's in Attleboro, MA.

A- Pours a slightly hazy bright golden body with a small white head that reduces without leaving much lacing or retention.

S- heavy spices and citrus.. cloves, oranges, some cinnamon and wheat. Overly spiced on the nose.

T- Heavy spices and orange peel, followed by wheat and grain. The finish has cloves and allspice.

M- Medium body, high carbonation

Good but nothing special. Spices were overdone, could have been a little more balanced.

355ml Bottle from Brewdog's Online Shop (£3.00):
Light golden & cloudy with a thumb-sized, bubbly white head on top that reduces a little, holding about half its original size for the next couple of minutes.

Fruity upfront with citrus notes (orange & some lemon zest). Pear & apple like aroma plus some coriander, cloves & wheat. There are a few light hops in the mix as well & some faint yeast and a semi-sweet aroma towards the end.

Orange & wheat with some lemon zest & coriander before some clove & yeast around the middle. It tastes a little sweeter than the nose indicated & some spice is present throughout, as is the faint hops from the aroma too.

Very smooth & refreshing, it's well-balanced throughout & goes down very easy despite the 6% abv. It's well-carbonated & seems quite lively giving it quite a crisp and dry finish that leave you wanting to take another drink.

A beer that I really enjoyed & one that proved far too easy to drink. It's relatively simple would usually be a bad thing but it works very well in this case with the citrus fruits & orange complimenting the coriander and wheat flavours. This one tastes as a witbier should and is definitely one worth picking up.
