Poured into Lost Abbey tumbler.

Pours piss yellow, literally. Fluffy white head, massive carbonation bubbles streaming up from the bottom.

Aroma is very belgian wit like so the name is suited. Pale malts, coriander, lemon peel, faint banana, and faint clove. You also get a sweet citrus orchard smell, more mandarin like than orange.

Taste is classic to the style. You get the wheat, spices, fruity yeast esters, and slight mineral quality you get in the best belgian wits. Nothing stands out or is missing. A tasty brew.

Mouthfeel is light. Crisp, refreshing carbonation and finishes a bit bubbly.

Another awesome offering by Logsdon. Hard to find a better brewed "American" wit. That said, I'm more of a German wheat or hefeweizen fan than the belgian counterparts. Can't knock the beer for what it is though.

Really tasty witbier done to style. Not much on the phenolic nose. A little bit of fruit in the nose and on the palate. Juicy witbier with some balance from the yeast. Solid drinking beer that pairs well with food. Right up there with Allagash White. More depth and character than the Allagash.

The bottle was opened 03/02/14. Best by date is 09/2014

A: I poured this witbier into a small tulip, so there was some difficulty in swirling the bottle in order to include some yeast in the first glassful. Therefore, initially it was a clear golden color with a nice 1.5 finger white head full of small dense bubbles. After the first glass, which allowed for some room to swirl the bottle, the color went from a clear kristall to cloudy witbier. The head left nice lacing.

S: Tons of apple juice. Maybe a little hay or straw. I'm not finding much of the coriander, although it is there. I'm having difficulty getting through the apple juice.

T: It is rather delicate before the yeast is included in the pour. Once the yeast is included, there is some phenol spice, but not enough. Apple juice and some funk.

M: Medium-light. On the mark and really the highlight of the beer. Nice carbonation and some light creaminess.

O: I may be off the mark here based on the ratings of others, but I just couldn't get the apple juice flavor out of my head. It felt like I was trying to find a witbier in a glass of apple juice. I don't know. I know this one doesn't have the same rep as the Logsdon saisons, of which I'm a huge fan of the Logsdon Seizoen Bretta, but I thought it would have been better. I'll continue to try anything I can from these guys.

Bottle: Poured a super pale yellow color ale with a very large foamy head with perfect retention and incredible lacing. Aroma of light coriander with loads of dry Bretty notes with some wheat malt notes also noticeable. Taste is also dominated by a mix of coriander, wheat malt with loads of dry Brett notes. Body is light with incredible carbonation. Very refreshing with bone dry finish.
