look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 11.2 oz bottle into a St. Bernardus goblet glass. Best by date of 19-08-14.
Appearance: Pours a very hazy straw yellowish orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of white head that quickly fades into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing.
Smell: A yeasty, fruity, and fairly spicy Belgian wheat aroma with good hints of orange and coriander. Belgian yeast with upfront hints of coriander, white pepper, and clove. Lots of wheat along with hints of straw, grains, and cracker. Fruit hints of orange, lemon, and green apple. Sweet hints of Belgian candied sugar and honey. Subtle earthy hops. A very good wheaty aroma.
Taste: Like the smell, a fruity, yeasty, and spicy Belgian wheat driven taste with good notes of coriander and citrus. Upfront Belgian yeast with lots of coriander along with some white pepper and clove. Wheat along with some hints of grains, straw, and cracker. Fruit notes of orange, lemon, and green apples. Sweet notes of candied sugar and some honey. Slight background presence of herbal hops. A very solid wheat forward taste.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a fairly high level of carbonation. Crisp, fruity, and slightly tart. Very smooth with a drying finish.
Overall: A great Belgian Witbier. Very good mix of yeast, coriander, and fruit flavors. One of the best for the style.
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
