From the 12 fl. oz.bottle dated 28-02-14. Sampled on June 25, 2013.
Wow! Where do I start? It has a milky pale yellow pour with a foamy white head that lingers.
The aroma emits all of those classic Belgian aromas such as pale malts, Belgian candied sugar, orange, pear, or another citrus note, and downplayed spices.
The body is light to medium and kind of on the smooth side.
The taste is far more sweet than I might have expected with roasted pale malts, Belgian sugars, citrus, and a finish that is low in bitterness. The sweetness is the leader. Witbiers are about midway on my list of favorite styles but I could drink this one regularly.

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.
