Had @ Blokes and Birds in Chicago
Appearance - Extremely cloudy, light blond color. Almost look like cloudy lemonade when held up to a candle. Creamy head subsides to a thin lacy layer on the top. Leaves lacing around edges of the glass.
Smell - Not very strong, but from what I did smell, was lightly sour, yeasty, sweet & a hint of clove.
Taste - Intense Belgian witbier flavor! The flavor reminds me of sour dough bread batter with the addition of citrus, coriander and definitely clove. Definitely on the funky side for me. Slightly sweet - Belgian style malt also apparent here. Ends with sour funk, No noticeable hops.
Mouth feel - Light, but highly effervescent. Each sip feels voluminous in the mouth, because of the carbonation.
Drink-ability - Alright. The potent Belgian yeast flavor is a bit too intense for this to be refreshing for me. More of a sipper than I expected.
Overall - I would recommend trying this one if you like wheat beers/witbiers. I thought it would be a more concentrated, flavorful version of Blue Moon or Hoegaarden, which it was; but not in ways that were very enjoyable.

on tap at Garden State Diner, Newark Airport.
Cloudy dark yellow with a finger of steady white that rings, and a continual stream of bubbles.
Herb-heavy nose with wax, baguette crust, and lemon rind.
Crackery malts, surprising blast of funk, lemon-pepper, and a leaf and citrus finish.
Orangeade finish and tingly linger.
Lt-med, plenty round, wheaty smooth.
The real deal. Definite yeast and herb notes, body not too thin, refreshing. Doesn't have the nuance of St Bernardus, but not far off.

Poured 12oz bottle into 16oz tulip glass.
A: Aggressive pour into tulip glass gave a hazy straw color with thick, rocky head.
S: Clove, spice; yeast dominant.
T: Bready, cloves, spicy bite, coriander, lemon,mild hop bitterness. Fairly complex.
M: Crisp and refreshing. Very light.
O: Fantastic and rewarding. Each quaff brings a different flavor profile out.
