Poured from a 12 fluid ounce bottle into a Weizen Glass. Bottled on 11/08/13.
Apperance: Hazy golden body. The sediment makes this one cloudy. A little light gets through but that's about it. A snowy head erupts, lingers, collapses, and leaves a good amount of sticky lacing.
Smell: Wheat and grains up front. Spices, particularly clove and coriander are also present. Minor backdrop of orange.
Taste: Sweet citrus from a mild kick of hops. The heavy wheat pushes through and produces a sweet and bready taste. Yeasty notes develop in the finish. The spices are well pronounced in the finish as well… leaves a somewhat banana-like taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium body. Rather low carbonation which works well for the beer. Smooth and easy to drink.
Overall: I could get nit-picky about this beer and point out everything it lacks compared to the powerhouse Witbiers but that would not be fair. This is a solid Witbier with a lot to enjoy. Cheers!

3.55/5 rDev -2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
This one pours a very cloudy Orange tan color with a short lasting pale white head. It leaves little lacing and retains just a slight film of foam throughout the pour. The nose of this one is very European with a sweet funky yeast aroma. There is peach and apricot notes with a lot of fresh bread aromas. The flavor follows suit. Quite funky, almost like a saison style. Sweet and malty and tangy and slightly sour all at the same time. The mouth is light and refreshing but effervescent and refreshing. This isn't a beer I'd come to often but definitely one worth trying and enjoying.
