3.33/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

P: 12oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Cloudy golden yellow with a one finger white head that dissipates quickly leaving behind nice lacing.

S: Hay with some spicy pepper notes and a hint of citrus. Belgian for sure. Not a whole lot going on but it's a fairly unique aroma.

T: Dry and peppery up front with a little bit of orange rind flavor in the finish. The malt seems like it's merely a base to showcase the spices and yeast.

M: Very carbonated and fairly dry. Flavors don't linger very long.

O: This is an okay beer, I like it but I don't love it. I'm not sure I'd go out looking for a 6-pack but if it was offered to me I'd happily drink it. It's not a straight forward witbier that's for sure. The base may be in a wit but the spices are too much in the forefront for it to be faithful to the style.
