This is about as perfect a witbier as you will find anywhere. It's delicious and refreshing. I keep going back for more. It's as good as anything you can get from Belgium and quite a bit better than Blue Moon Belgian White.

For me this was a refreshing beer. The taste was lighter than other Witbiers I have had. It was a little plain to my nose but I did get a sense of the orange peel. I enjoyed drinking it but would not put it as a favorite.

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.

I hate to go against the community, but I was unimpressed. I can appreciate subtle beer and this definitely is subtle, but I often found myself wondering if I was drinking beer flavored club soda. Personally I prefer a brighter white beer with a bit more impact. This has it's place and I would buy it again, but it just kind of struck me as "just being there".
