Got this on tap at a Manhattan burger joint.
Poured to a slightly pale opaque orange color with little head--very nice to behold.
Smelled acidic, tangy and citrusy--it's about what I'd expect.
Tasted nice--slightly bitter to start with a smooth finish followed by a hint of sweetness. The citrus (especially orange) flavor comes out, and the bitterness is not overpowering.
For a white, it's unusually creamy and has substantial body, yet it's crisp and doesn't bite back. I'm happy with the mouthfeel.
Overall it's one of the better whites I've had--I'll enjoy this again.

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.
