Quick review - medium thick in the mouth, slightly citrus tasting and smelling with a surprising dose of malt.
I poured it in a 16oz. pint glass. The color was a cloudy orangey amber, darker than I expected for a wit with a thick, creamy head that dissipated quickly with almost no lacing. I pour hard and this beer produced too much head for me to pour the whole bottle without taking a break (that's a good thing in my book).
It smelled slightly hoppy with some maltiness underneath.
The taste was slightly citrusy and malty, with an unexpected fullness. As the beer warmed, it developed a fuller, maltier character. It was not as citrusy as I was expecting from a wit.
The mouthfeel was medium thick with no fizzy feel to it, thinning as it warmed.
I typically like a witbier and this one's no different, although this is a rather different witbier based on my previous experiences. I could have a few during an evening, but would rather switch up. I would not want to sit down and kill a six pack.

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%

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
