look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a slightly hazy gold with a thin white mousse that recedes quickly.

S: Spicy and floral on the nose, this ale presents strong aromas of wheat, pepper, coriander, orange peel, lemon, flowers, and grass.

T: Notes of wheat, minerals, cream, lemon, orange peel, pepper, coriander, flowers, and grass fill the mouth. The finish is boisterous and spicy with pronounced floral, orange, and coriander notes.

M: Light in body, but not as dry as I typically expect beers of this style to be. Carbonation is very intense, maybe a bit too intense for the style.

O: This is not a bad witbier, but it is a bit unbalanced and one-dimensional. There are definitely better out there, but this one should not be entirely avoided.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

A beautiful pale pour with a small fizzy head and cloudy body. Great lacing. Aroma is clean with notes of hay, celery and magnolia seed (Lemon Pledge). Some graininess and Belgian funk from the yeast. Mouthfeel is light and somewhat tart. Flavor is quite malty with grain being the most predominant. Floral hops finish clean. It's a very nice beer. Refreshing and complex.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

The appearance is quite fetching as it has a clean yet cloudy look with an iridescent golden pear color. The head was bright white with a thin yet sturdy build.

The aroma is perfumey, with a bubblegum-like sweetness. Peppercorns and clove mix with a dish soap and banana to make an array of the most unusual characters.

The taste is a bit watery but there is a wheat, clove and anise that stands out. A bit of cinnamon, banana, bubble gum and rose petal finish.

The feel is silky and light and leaves a film on the tongue.

Overall this is an interesting and funky Wit that has a lot of merits.
