Best by date of 07.08.15.
Poured into a tulip on 05.23.14.

A: 2 1/2 finger head. Very cloudy yellow/orange with yeast.

S: Wheat. Also citrus (orange) and cloves.

T: Egg, wheat, orange are dominant. Cloves are subtle.

M: Very creamy with some carbonation at the end. Chewy.

O: This was interesting to try after trying American wits. It was not crisp and had a much heavier mouthfeel in general. It was good, but not a favorite.

Rating: B

First had: on tap at Monk's, Philly, PA

This is undoubtedly the smoothest and best witbier I've ever had. Poured into a chalice, a cloudy, pale, bronzed yellow-orange with a beautiful head of delicate white bubbles that retained pretty much throughout the session and left some nice lacing. Biscuity aroma, Belgian yeast, sugar and spice, and citrus zest. Very bready and earthy taste, and very complex and full-flavored for a witbier. Flavors of yeast, sugar, lemon, pear, banana, corriander, pepper, all wrapped in an incredibly smooth package that you just don't get from a typical wit. Probably the only wit that I've had that I'd call medium-bodied, with full flavor and rich texture, and definitely easily drinkable, but to be savored.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Very white looking, still a trace of mellow yellow (no, not the soft dring). Fairly large white head fades fast.

Smell: Smells great, zesty lemon and belgian yeastiness.

Taste: Fairly mellow considering the sharp smell, lemon and malt make up the body, the belgian yeast adds a little character. I wish the flavors were bigger and sharper.

Mouthfeel: Pretty good, full and thick.

Drinkability: Good, I could drink these back-to-back on a hot summer's day (if it were only hat here). Very good.
