4.46/5  rDev +7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a goblet.

A: Beautiful in its simplicity. A very consistent, cloudy body that's a beautiful amber that seems deep. A pale white head tops it off. It is bubbly and dissipates leaving a thin film on top.

S: A beautifully classic witbier smell. Strong aromas of coriander and orange pop up over a well balanced base of spicy malts and hearty wheat. Extremely well balanced, I only wish it were stronger.

T: Outstanding flavors here. Coriander and orange and lemon and wheat are all balanced to near perfection. It strikes me as a great, classic witbier taste done without surprises but is simply better made than others.

M: Almost perfect. It has a great amount of carbonation. The thin body just has a bit more weight to it that really enhances the experience. It's perfect right away, but is just a little bit too watery on the finish. It still leaves some great lingering flavors in your mouth though. Excellent.

O: At once highly refined and well crafted but also free from pretension in its simplicity, this is a witbier done right, and a great go to for a light beer when you don't necessarily need the extreme boldness of other styles.

Serving type: bottle

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
