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.

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.
