Appearance- Light wheat colored body with a bit of haziness. A two finger, white head sits atop and looks good while it hangs around; unfortunately, it doesn't hang around quite long enough for my liking. Not much lacing, either.
Smell- The predominant aromas are wheat and citrus (lemon and orange), but also some buttery/milky coriander, but much more citrus than spice.
Taste- The coriander comes through much more in the flavor. There's a bit of citrus coming through in the middle (almost changes from citrus to melon as I drink) before transitioning to a husky wheat flavor and finishing with more coriander. There's a milkiness running through the entire profile that I remember getting when I first drank this beer in college years ago. There's also a light hop bitterness that doesn't do much except exist.
MF- Light bodied with medium carbonation that could be a bit higher. Pretty watery and tame.
Drinkability- I don't hate it like I used to when I went to Humboldt State and every college kid was drinking 12 packs out of the bottle. It's better than I remember, but still not a very good example of a witbier. It drinks easy, but that's because there's not a whole lot going on and not much alcohol in it. Not offensive, but not note-worthy, either.

A - Looks like Cream Soda.
S- Like bread with some citrus
T - Liquid bread with some lemon and hints of other spices at the end. Refreshing cold but more flavor a little warmer.
M - Smooth and light on head from a bottle. Imagine it would be very refreshing on tap.
O - It's not a bad choice at all for a summer witbier. Low alcohol and "drinkability" (yes I went there) means you could kick back a 6pk with your buddy Jesse on a sloppy summer afternoon pretty seamlessly.
