A: Poured out a little from the can. Very cloudy golden color with white head.

S: Straw, mild maltiness and spice.

T: Similar to the nose. Flavor is pretty robust and there is just enough earthy hop to keep it interesting.

M: Medium body and carb. Body is a bit sticky.

O: Big fan of this probably because it is fairly light on the spice. Some might take that as a negative. Nonetheless, a six pack of cans equals a great session.

Fills a hand-blown pilsner glass with a clear, pale straw (SRM 2). The head is barely present.

The aroma is tilted toward tangerine and apricot, with a background of coriander.

The flavor profile is reminiscent of wheat, with light flavors of tangerine, followed by a very fruity, but faint, finish.

The body is light with no alcohol, a watery texture and fizzy carbonation.

This is a very refreshing and easy drinking summer beer, if not very interesting.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: moderate carbonation, minimal head, hazy, orange-yellow in color

Smell: orange, banana, and light Belgian spices

Taste: orange, banana, and Belgian spices--cardamom, clove, coriander

Mouthfeel: sweet, medium body, medium-low carbonation

Overall: Very tasty. May be the best local witbier that I have had. Drinks a lot like a hefeweizen. I found myself going back for several pints of this. A great surprise.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a soft golden straw color, fluffy white head and cloudy body.

Spicy belgian yeast esters up front on the nose, peppery with some rustic earthy scent. Rather like a saison when smelling it.

Smooth hop bitterenss starts off the first sip and quickly slips into a malty, spicy flavor. Good dose of semi-sour wheal flavor. The coriander and citrus peel make their presence known as well. Smooth body with mild carbonation make this a very easy drinker and compliment the complexity of flavor coming from the belgian yeast, spices and malt.

This is a refreshing and flavorful beer with a lot of complexity but surprisingly easy to drink. It quickly invites another round after the first. This also makes a great compliment to food as I've found, especially seafood. Excellent American example of this style.
