I'm not going to leave you hanging about my opinion; this is one great beer. I have never given a review with the ratings that I give this beer, but here's why...
A - It pours almost clear from the bottle. literally. In the glass, it is a beautiful varying density translucent white-straw color with a 1 finger head comprised of large and small bubbles.
S - Spice and yeast. Exactly as I am expecting.
T - Bread, spices, and citrus. It is hard for me to describe beyond these terms as it is for me the perfect mix of these three flavors. It leaves a bit of a tang for a finish.
M - It has a medium density feel; not thick, but not watery like a "lite" beer. There is carbonation, no doubt, but not to the point that it feels like soda.
O - For a wit bier it is the standard by which I will measure all others. There is another reason that I love this beer. The label claims that this beer is made in the style of Pierre Celis, and frankly, they have nailed it. If you are unfamiliar with the late, great Mr. Celis, please google him. He was a fantastic Belgian brewer but not so great of a business man. He also brewed in Texas under the label of Celis Brewery in the 90's. As best as my taste buds can recall, this beer is a dead ringer for the Celis White and is one of the reasons I fell in love with craft beers.

Very pale straw-colored beer, with a medium head of snow-white foam and fine lacing. Aroma is disappointing for a wit, though--a tad grainy malt with just a hint of tartness. Flavor is a bit more on style: you can get the orange peels and a little coriander. Very attenuated, with little malt sweetness at all, and a light tartness. All the essential components are there, but it's still a little bland overall, like a modern Hoegarden. One thing they did get really right is the light, spritzy, well-carbonated body.
A pretty good wit, but not an outstanding one.
