4.68/5 rDev +12.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Enjoyed in a pilsner glass
A: pours a very hazy straw yellow color with a finger of pure white fluffy head which lingers for just a short time before dissipating, leaves
S: kind of smells like rubber, like fresh clean rubber not burning rubber, nice bready notes and a slight spice
T: begins with a slight lemon zest then moves into a great bready note which lingers on the palate long afterwards, i didnt see the banana peel and spice notes that that often see in other witbeers butt i think that helped this one to smooth right out, overall a delight to drink and infinitely drinkable
M: medium carbonation tingle which is slightly sharp but definitely brief, before backing off into a silky smooth taste which leaves the mouth feeling like there is a thin layer of foam on the mouth
O: the is most definitely the best witbeer out there, easily sessionable and yet so complex and delicious

Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap

Appearance has a hazy, honey-colored beer with a small white head that fades fast and leaves just a little lace behind.
Smells include fruity notes of bananas, coriander spices, and some barnyard yeast aromatics. Very nice nose
The taste is partly dry but also has some sweetness to it from the fruits. Flavors include green grapes, for a white wine taste, plus citrus fruit such as lemons and oranges.
The high carbonation makes for a prickly mouthfeel, with a body somewhere between light and medium. The finish is semi-sweet with green grapes, but also some tartness of lemon.
Overall a very enjoyable beer; it's interesting how the different flavors play out for a sweet and dry aspect at the same time.
Thanks to Treyliff for this one!
