This is an ok beer, but I feel nothing really makes it stand out. I enjoyed drinking it, and it goes well with food, but it didn't have a strong taste of its own. A pretty standard witbier, I did like the smell, which smelled a bit sweet, and went with the flavor well.

This is a cloudy medium gold beer with a substantial head on top of it--really good pour in this chalice glass. The nose is sweet--reminds me of cheerios. Rather bit of an odd candy-citrus flavor, but not unpleasant. The flavor though, doesn't really taste anything like a real wit. I can't find any coriander to taste. The citrus is like the nose--odd. The yeast character is a little fruity, but barely. Not a very drinkable beer.

look: 4.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle poured into a lager glass.

A - Hazy mango. One inch head quickly dissipates.Spotty lacing.

S - Orange peel and coriander.

T - Malts balanced nicely with orange peel and coriander. Lightly carbonated. Finishes quite well with a citrus and Grains of Paradise mix.

M - Medium light

O - These are delicious! Would make for a great session brew. Cheers!
