Poured from a single 33cl bottle with freshness dating.
Appearance: a pale yellow liquid which is translucent, a small half inch head rapidly faded to lace around the glass.
Smell: Outstanding aroma here, lots of citrus and corriander notes. Fresh!
Taste: A well balanced citrus flavor along with a bready taste from the wheat. The spices round this one out to make each sip an outstandingly consistent witbier.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a good deal of carbonation.
Drinkability: an awesome beer that can be drank in session especially due to it's moderate ABV.
Overall: this is my favorite witbier, beating out Hoegaarden and Allagash White.
Serving type: bottle

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
