Light golden colored with plenty of haziness. Head is minuscule and only covers about a third of the top of the beer. Aroma of orange peel,some coriander,and pale wheat is present. The coriander is more prevalent in the flavor with orange peel and pale wheat playing more of a background note. The mouth is a bit watery and fairly quaffable.

Poured a cloudy golden color with a 1/5 finger of off-white head. It looks rather nice in body, though it could do with a larger, fluffier head. Scents of banana, clove, hints of coriander, earthy Belgian yeast, grainy, wheat bread malt and hints of orange peel with slight plastic-like notes. A standard, though overall pleasant witbier aroma that is true to style. Taste begins sweet, with a nice, clover honey-like flavor and a hint of bready malt, with notes of orange peel and coriander in the background. A faint tartness is also present. In the middle the honey-like flavors continue but the coriander becomes more assertive, along with hints of white pepper. The finish is semi-dry, with the flavors of coriander reaching their peak, alongside some floral, honey and white pepper notes. Aftertaste is semi-dry with notes of coriander, white pepper, orange peel and hints of bready malt. A very nice, true to style witbier flavor profile that is pleasantly sweet, refreshing, spicy yet not overpowering and a present, though not overbearing presence of orange peel. Quite nice. Mouthfeel is light bodied, with medium-high carbonation, a slight acidity and a semi-drying and vaguely creamy and smooth feel. Very nice, easy to drink and refreshing. Overall this is an excellent witbier. It stays true to style and provides a wonderfully refreshing drinking experience. While not the single best example of the style it is quite well executed and well worth trying.

Poured from the bottle into a Hoegaarden witbier glass.

Classic bleach white creamy head, and two fingers tall and forms nicely and evenly of the pour. Classic opaque lemon and orange colored body. Some retention, but a standard soapy collar and some good staying power.

Solid impressive aroma. Tangerine oranges. Vanilla cream. Chewy sense of wheat malt and density. Love this fruit and vanilla like action.

Palate comes very impressively. Creamy malt body with a chewy palate. Lemon and orange flavors hit the tongue in a good splash. That creamy texture continues all the way down with the vanilla tones as well. Mild spice more like a dried grain sense on the finish, but finishes clean, wet, and nicely thick. Some popping bread toast as well that hits on the swallow nicely.

Really nice witbier, one I've put off for drinking in a long time, but good to know about since I really seem to be enjoying this one.
