Pours a hazed pear color with 2 fingers of eggshell colored head. Average lacing & faint head retention

S: Coriander, a butt load of orange peel, breadyness & perfumy notes

T: Follows the nose, rich pear notes as well up front. Much orange peel & some orange sweetness, plus coriander & chamomile once warm. Finishes with orange, orange, pears & coriander & a little dryness

MF: Light/medium bodied, lively carbonation

This beer has charmed me, a little off centered take on the style, but totally drinkable, I would buy this again; easily my favorite of the 3 canned offerings

more of a wit type than anything else i reckon here. its got all the requisite components, and some fun additives like coriander and chamomile, which give the beer a bright herbal character thats refreshing for summer and endearingly different from others like it. pale yellow in color with a tall and lasting white head. the nose is very herbaceous, short of vegetal, but leafy and more tea-like than many of its peers. wheat and pale malt base keep it light but frothy in feel, carbonation is lively, and it feels great going down, super easy. the yeast is interesting here, a little belgian but not loaded with fruity esters or anything, just really vigorous fermentation i imagine has left this dry and sugarless, while carbonating it very well. chamomile is dominant in the finish, and there is a lemon note running through it too, perfect warm weather brew, and something i would probably buy regularly if it were commercially available in colorado. i also had the pleasure of meeting the brewers at anthem, who are charismatic and engaging individuals putting out some really cool beer. who knew? this was the first i had heard of them, and it was a great first impression. lovely beer this one.

Appearance- A murky golden/yellow color with tons of sediment. Pours a vivacious soapy white head at about two fingers.

Aroma- Very nice aroma of spices and fruit which blend nicely and forewarn whats to come.

Taste- First sip reveals a big hit of oranges and coriander, as advertised, with spices adding a nice zing in the finish. A cracker/bread malt adds great flavor to this and help balance out the spice in the finish. Not sure what the role Chamomile played in this brew since I'm not familiar with the flavor, but apparently its used in other witbiers as well.

Feel- Decent amount of carbonation. This beer is very smooth and almost creamy which makes for a very pleasant beer to drink.

Overall- A very nice witbier with plenty of spice and orange flavors to remain true to style and then some. A style that really isn't brewed enough, and one that gets a poor misrepresentation from Blue Moon, so its great to see a local made witbier from one of the few Oklahoma craft breweries. At 6 bucks for 4 pack this is a great deal, and the quality of this beer makes it a must buy. (89/100)
