4.98/5 rDev +37.6%
served from a bottle into a snifter style glass
appearance - 4.5/5 - Pours a semi-dark cloudy straw color with a 1/2 finger head. Tiny bubbles can be seen streaming up the edge of the glass.
smell - 5/5 - Strong sweet, citrusy aroma with some spices in the nose too.
taste - 5/5 - Instantly tastes like orange and coriander. Not too much and not too little and followed by a crisp zest.
mouthfeel - 5/5 - Highly carbonated and refreshing.
overall - 5/5 - A very tasty Belgian style beer that is refreshing without overt "Belgian flavor".

4.75/5 rDev +31.2%
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a beer mug.
Appearance: Super clear pale straw color to the beer. Light carbonation, and a nearly non-existent thin head. Moderate lacing for a witbier. It is just about everything I would expect.
Smell: Wheaty, more than a touch of yeast; however, it is counterbalanced by a spicy/sweet citrus tone. The scent is very "round," is the only way I can put it. Really enticing.
Taste: Upon first sip, there is lots of citrus flavor with some hop help. As the beer fizzes out on my tongue, I am suddenly bombarded with a great deal of spice flavor: nutmeg? cinnamon? Aftertaste is all herbal/spice.
Mouthfeel: It's very chewy; a surprise considering the color characteristics. The carbonation creates a light feeling through the chewiness, and the beer rinses smoothly. Quite possibly one of the better beers I've had this year. (nyuk nyuk nyuk)
Drinkability: This is a beer even my fiancee would enjoy. The lightness combined with a flavor-craver approach make for an awesome brew. And at just a hair over 5% ABV, you can have more than one! (This is not the case with a lot of Avery's brews ;-) )
