3.33/5 rDev -20.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Presnted in an 11.5oz bottle and poured into a witbier glass.
Appearance is dark golden in color, unlike any other wit I've encountered to date, and topped with a scrawny white head that imploeded and left no trace.
Smell: very potent; lots of orange peel and wheat but with an odd almost salty aroma.
Taste: very bold flavor that lasts a long time. Has a very strong orange taste that I finally pegged as a vitamin C tablet or Tang-like. The orange simply buried all the other potential flavors as it struck my palate. I simply couldn't get past it.
Feel: light and refreshing.
Overall: not really too sure where I stand on this one. The heavy orange flavor is almost a distraction and, in my opinion, compromises the other flavors. Not bad, but not great.

Bright hazy golden body with a thick white meringue that lasts and laces.
Floral, spicy, citrus, and wheat.
Lots of the wheat and spice on the flavor which lingers nicely. Has the same floral quality as the aroma. Citrus is light.
Slightly bubbly on the tongue and fairly light bodied.
I think it's rated as the highest witbier and I can see why. Definitely one of the best.

4.13/5 rDev -1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Slightly hazy lemon with a modest ivory head. Orange zest, clove, wheat, lemon, coriander, and floral hops form the very strong aroma. Banana emerges late. Flavor is slightly more subdued, with citrus leading, and becoming bready and toasted mid palate. Citrus notes strengthen in subsequent sips, dominating the profile.
Delicious take on the style. I love the bready malt presence, and the fact that it's not bubblegum or banana laden until the finish.
Serving type: on-tap
