Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a pale white/yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of oranges, spices. Taste is the same, some wheat, spices, oranges, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a refreshing and highly sessionable beer.

A-pours a hazy straw pale yellow with a billowing white fluffy head with excellent retention
S-grassy lemon with some undertones of sweet malt and spice
T-grassy lemon up front followed by malt sweetness and finishes with a clean bitterness on the palate
M-light and crisp with high carbonation
O-nice, clean crisp beer that isn't has heavily spiced as a lot of witbiers which is a good thing

A: Beautiful pale gold with solid white head. Noticeable sediment left in the bottle.

S: Very faint lemongrass and a hint of malt. Aroma diminishes quickly.

T: Extremely clean, refreshing, slightly citrusy. Orange peel and coriander are noticeable, but as accents and not at all overwhelming. Much drier than most white ales.

M: Highly carbonated; fine-ish beads which hold up in hot weather. Relatively smooth.

O: One of the better white beers i've had. Not too heavy, sweet, or fruity. Again, very clean.
