4.28/5 rDev -2.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
1 Pint, 0.9 oz bottle poured into Hoegaarden glass.
A--Hella thick, white frothy head reigns supreme over cloudy honey color ale reminiscent almost of apricot juice. Nice lacing sip after sip.
S--Banana and clove. Traditional but beautiful. Mild phenols and cinnamon. Rather spicy and sweet.
T--Prominent clove followed by sweet malty hints. Just a kiss of bitter hop at finish to balance. Grassiness, bubblegum, mild phenols pop up in between. Tasty.
M--Typical quality witbier. Medium-bodied. Creamy and nice.
D--My bottle went too fast. Sad it's gone. I think you could easily enjoy several of these easily and will few ill effects. I'll be testing that theory soon!

I had previously had this bottled, but the on tap version was spectacular. The only thing I could complain about would be the price, but for a beer of this quality to a wheat beer lover like myself, it was worth a few extra shekels. I would order this anytime and anywhere!

4.35/5 rDev -1.4%

16.9oz bottle at 41 F poured into pint glass. Bottle code is 3363, but I don't have a clue what that means. I would probably guess early December 2013.
Pours cloudy golden with a big white head that dissipates quickly, lots of carbonation. Smell is banana, clove, fruity, yeast, bread, lemon. Smells good.
Taste is all of those things but muted and mild, maybe a little too watery (which may be right for the style, and just out of my preference), but really an excellent combination of flavors.
Mouthfeel is thick, creamy, and satisfying, while somehow still light and airy. Overall, excellent beer.
