Poured a gorgeous cloudy, translucent golden yellow body with three fingers of fluffy, thick white head. A very true to form witbier and quite nice looking. Scents of orange zest and orange flesh, grainy, tangy wheat malt, fruity esters with an aroma of apricot juice, spicy yeast phenols, light notes of white pepper and a perfume-like coriander spiciness providing a true to style balanced spiciness. Overall impression is of a sweet, very fruity, citrus heavy witbier aroma profile with spiciness not being overwhelming, but contributing depth, complexity and balance. Very pleasant and mostly true to style. Flavor begins lightly tart with notes of orange zest and tart orange flesh, pleasantly and softly sweet malt and a light hint of coriander and white pepper. Sourness is of a lightly lactic-like sort, optional to the style yet quite pleasant. Middle is slightly tarter and drier, continuing the lactic-like sourness along with tart orange zest and flesh, a medium-light spiciness with notes of coriander, white pepper, a light wheat malt tartness and graininess. Light sweetness is still present and balances the tartness. Finish is lightly dry with light lactic sourness still present, as well as tart orange zest and flesh, grainy malt, light coriander and white pepper and softly sweet malt keeping it from being too dry. Aftertaste is tangy orange zest, white pepper, coriander and spicy yeast with a touch of grainy wheat malt. Overall impression of flavor is of a tart, orange zest and flesh forward flavor profile with a nice lactic character that is balanced by the softly sweet and grainy malt and the spiciness of coriander and yeast phenols. It is slightly drier than many example as a result, but still maintains a pleasant sweetness at a light level. A very nice witbier that does more than stick to the now standard flavor profile, yet still remains true to the spirit of the style. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with high, softly prickly carbonation and a tart, drying, lightly acidic, yet creamy feel. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a wonderfully refreshing witbier that is very true to form and quite nice. Overall this is an excellent witbier. It has a lovely aroma that is very true to style and a flavor that diverges from style somewhat, but is pleasant and quite well done and still stays true to the spirit of the style. Mouthfeel is very true to form and aids the refreshing combination of flavors. Easily my favorite witbier and well worth trying.

On-tap at Bards & Brew in San Clemente and served in a goblet. On to the beer:

This white ale is actually quite bright in color with a bright blonde color. Solid head retention and lace as the beer goes down. The aroma is big on lemon, and is quite dry with some coriander notes. In fact, it smells like a saison crawled into this beer, and its taste follows a similar suite. It's a "funky" witbier, one with a big bite of tart lemon and subtle witbier characteristics throughout. It's light and refreshing, and a little different from the common drink per style.

Pours two fingers of head on a cloudy light straw colored body.
The aroma has honey and coriander upfront and dry grain in the background.
The taste is well balanced. Watery at first, honey sweetness in the middle, mild lemon bitter and finishes with a bracing tart.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It's pretty good for a style that I don't usually enjoy.
