Poured from bottle into a Belgian tulip glass.
A: Pours a cloudy light yellow with a touch of gray haze. Has a thin white head with a constant stream of bubbles rising up. Leaves some nice lacing along the glass.
S: Strong orange peel in the nose with a hint of coriander and a slightly soapy character. Has a pleasant, earthy, yeasty smell that blends well with the earthiness of the Saaz hops. The earthy aroma intensifies as the glass warms.
T: Pleasantly tart and bitter. The orange peel shines through without being overpowering. Has a touch of sweetness that balances well with the tart bitterness. The coriander seems to play a bit in the background but this works well in the balance.
M: A little bit dry but not so much that it leaves you with a cotton mouth sensation. The finish is very clean and leaves you looking forward to the next sip.
D: Very drinkable. This would make for a very refreshing drink on a hot summer afternoon. The tartness would get fatiguing after more than a few. It's not something you could drink all night long but I don't think that's what it's intended to be. It's definitely something I would buy again.
Overall: A very good example of the style. Comes much closer to a true Belgian Witbier than many other American attempts.
