Fermented with a Belgian ale yeast, this blend of barley & wheat malts yields a mixture of clove and fruity aromas, all without the use of any spices. Deliberately brewed to retain a cloudy appearance.

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

picked up a bottle of this when visiting family in NC recently. the temperature outside definitely screams winter so why not pop this one tonight? enjoyed from a bell's tulip.

a - brew poured a soft but murky orange with lots of visible carbonation evenly climbing to the surface for quite some time. there was a t hin white bubbly head that bubbled away in parts but never completely left.

s - smells like a wit aught to...orange peel and coriander.

t - taste follows the nose of orange peel and coriander but offers a lot more sweetness than i expected, but overall soft and very approachable. flavor isn't too bold or intense. just nicely made. good amount of water in there but not watered down.

m - lots of fizzy carbonation...big sweetness. medium bodied and drinks extremely smoothly.

o - overall, not wild about wit beers in general, but this is very good for the style.
