[Suggested Glassware: Weizen Glass]

The pour was a cloudy golden yellow with a large (2-3 finger) white pillowy head that lasted throughout and had excellent sticky lacing.

The aroma was of light bread and straw malts, grassy hops and an earthy yeast with notes of citrus (orange), coriander, rye and mild spiciness and a hint of a cardboard odor.

The taste was lightly acidic with a decent citrus presence and a touch rye in the beginning, becoming a tad yeasty with a substantial spicy ending. The flavor lasted a good long while proceeding the swallow, with a spicy citrus taste lingering on for a bit longer.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery, yet slightly dry texture and an almost lively carbonation.

Overall I found this brew to border on somewhat tasty and OK. It did posses a nice bold spiciness, but was lacking a decent wheat presence for a truly good Witbier...
