4/5 rDev +6.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
12oz can (canned 6/7/13) poured into an Idle Hands tulip glass.
A - Pours a very pale golden color with touches of orange in the body. Translucent and hazy with almost a light glow to it. A finger of frothy white head forms briefly and falls quickly leaving a thick collar on the edge of the glass.
S - Very fruity and spicy on the nose...lots of citrusy oranges and tons of lemon. Cloves, ginger, grass, sweet malt, black pepper, nutmeg. A lot going on here - smells more saison-y than witbier...but I like what I am smelling.
T - Yeasty, spicy, fruity and hoppy bitterness. Bready malt base, lightly grassy, a bit of gingerale with a light gingery bite to it, lemon, oranges. Crisp bitterness from the hops that mutes the fruity and spicy flavors a bit, keeping them from matching the aroma in intensity.
M - Lightish medium body...a bit heavy for the Witbier style, ample tingly carbonation, crisp hoppy bitterness, lots of spices - ginger comes thru especially as this warms up a bit.
O - I would definitely call this a saison instead of a witbier...and an enjoyable one. I like the spicy ginger bite against the Sorachi Ace hops...complements well. Good citrusy character too. Body is a bit heavy for style, but works if you think saison. Glad to try this one.

Poured from the can into my 668 Neighbor tulip. Hazy amber body with a two-finger, fluffy white head. Some lacing.
Smells slightly of ginger, some nutmeg, and lemon.
Tastes pretty crisp. Nutmeg, lemon especially, and--again--only the tiniest bit of ginger.
Very thin mouthfeel. Mild carbonation.
This beer is tasty, but very muted. Good for drinking at a barbecue at an easy 5%.
