Poured from a can into a Goblet.
Deep, hazy yellow with 1 inch of head disapates slowly to 1/4 inch with persistant lacing.
Smells strong of fruit and yeast, very pleasant. Maybe some florals coming through.
Just the right amount of weight to it, not too heavy or light.
The taste is much like the smell; fruit, yeast, malt and a hit of hoppiness to balance the sweetness. It may not be the prototypical witbier, but I prefer the full, complex flavor of this version to it's more sedate brethren.

12 oz bottle purchased during my Denver trip in February. Poured into my beer goblet.

Appearance: A straw colored pale beer with no head except a ring around the edge of the glass.

Smell: Light spiciness from the yeast and coriander also a bit of bready malt.

Taste: A decent witbier, but not very complex. A general spiciness along with some clove and citric flavors.

Mouthfeel: The body is not heavy, but it is full due to the yeast (if that makes sense). The carbonation is o the stronger side, as it should be with a witbier.

Overall: A decent witbier, but it does not separate itself from other examples of the style. I would definitely drink it again, but probably not seek it out.

A: single finger bright white frothy head on a pale straw/golden murky body with nice contrast between head and body color.

S: lots of sweet lemon custard, a little pepper, wheat, grains.

T: more wheat and sweet lemon. Not very spicy or zesty. finish is watered down. ginger and banana notes throughout.

M: light body and moderate to high carbonation. thin and a little watery in the finish.

Overall: The flavor was a bit of a let down from what is hoped from the taste. Its a little too thin, even for the style. Still very drinkable and refreshing.

A: Pours a hazy golden yellow in color with some light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a thin white head that is mostly comprised of larger bubbles that reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light lacing is observed.

S: The smell of this beer is rather mild with light notes of lemon citrus and some spices (clove).

T: Similar to the smell, the beer has flavors of wheat along with lemon citrus and some clove spice.

M: Light bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Easy to drink, refreshing, and sessionable - this is a nice summer beer. I could see myself picking this up for outdoor events as the beer is good and the can form-factor is also nice.
