look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazy golden color with a thick, foamy head that lingers for a while then dissipates to nothing. It smells like a typical Belgian white. Clove is most pronounced with some citrus. The taste is light with some orange flavor and clove. Some faint banana in the end. It has a creamy mouthfeel that is pleasant and medium carbonation. Overall, this beer has all the qualities of a witbier, its just in a lighter version.

3.69/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Serving Type: 22 oz bottle poured into a stemmed pilsener (beer tulip) glass.

Appearance: Hazy orange (almost reddish) gold. White, frothy head recedes with minimal lacing, but maintains a fringe of foam.

Smell: Citrus peel, mixed herbs and spices, bit of banana.

Taste: Tends towards tart with lemon and orange. Some sweet cereal as well as typical clove and banana notes.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light, moderate carbonation, clean.

Overall: Never my favorite style, but a good representation and drinkable summer beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 3.75

12 oz. can poured into pilsener

L: hazy gold to yellow with white to off-white head about 1/2-inch tall at most and disappearing quickly; no stick or lace, but keeps a fluffy thick collar of almost beige foam

S: lots of spice, clove and coriander; i could be tricked into thinking "banana" ... definitely lemon peel; sour grain; sour grapes

T: lots of lemon peel, some nice grain and plenty of the spices; never sweetens but doesn't get overly bitter nor sour, even as it nods in those notes' directions; "tart" might best describe the lack of sweetness

F: perfect for summer -- well-carbonated, light, easy-drinking but at no point watery. a fantastic mouthfeel.

O: super easy to drink and not overboard on any of the major flavors ... the spice gets a bit earthy at times but it never becomes bitter, just a bit sour or unsweet. it's not a style I go to often, but some Texas brewers are making these seem quite appealing, and Buffalo Bayou here continues to impress me.
