Another SA sampler pk offering. Poured into a pint glass, nice white, creamy head, faded fast, some light lacing. Piss yellow, lightly cloudy, the better witbiers that I have had are usually "thicker".
Smells of nutmeg and honey, heavy on the clove and pretty much tastes the same. Bready, hints of floral, Medium carbonation.
This is an easy wheat to drink and if you are new to the style it would be a pleasant place to start. Smooth, slightly sweet, mostly cloves...easy drinking. Not much else to say, I think it needs more spices on the nose and tongue...it pretty much tastes like a watered down honey/clove wheat. I'd drink a couple out of a sampler but probably wouldn't buy on its own.
