Pours a cloudy gelatin yellow. Bright and with white brimming of head. Denser due to a wider glass.

Aromas are mild and wheaty with a light citrus cling. Notes of dry spice, lemon, and nut flesh. Good.

Simple and summery. Wheat and white bread maltiness with a hint of lemon and coriander. Grains of paradise is in here, too. Has some spiciness. Still on the side of nutty. Hops are quiet, but offer a tinge of herbs. Very faint and dull smoke.

A sturdy witte with richness. Almost eggy. Middle carb features in the feel. Quenching.

Decent witbier. Simple and solid. Doesn't stray too far from what it is.
