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.

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.

12 oz can poured into a tulip glass
A -- Pale amber/straw color. White head with okay lacing. Retains the head a little bit.
N -- Yeasty and wheaty. Hints of spice and citrus.
T -- Wheaty and yeasty. Little bit of orange peel and coriander. Nice spice notes. Nice aftertaste.
M -- Little spicy/bubbly on the front end. Not bad. Pleasant tingly throughout.
O -- Probably my favorite of the NBC year round line up (although the one-off Irish Stout was truly outstanding). Really enjoying this from the end of summer to the beginning of fall. Hits all the right notes for me.

Poured into a US Tumbler. Cloudy straw color with lingering head and lace that sticks to the side of the glass.
Floral aromas with a hint of hops that hit the back of the palate alongside the ample carbonation on the way down.
Flavors reminds me a lot of Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier, but less sweet. Lemon citrusy notes dominate.
Love the can. I pour everything into a glass anyway and I am starting to believe that the can is just a miniature keg that is easier to recycle than glass.
