I love a good wit. Always refreshing, and the style that brought me into beer, I think it will always hold a place in my heart. With that...
A - Nice, hazy golden color with a 1/2 finger foamy head. Slight lacing.
S - Definite orange and slightly spicy overtones. Nice and yeasty. Great for the style.
T - Slightly sweet, clementine and manderine oranges. Citric lemony finish with light coriander throughout. A superb wit. St. Bernardus is the only thing that can touch this.
M - I personally prefer a slightly thicker, less carbonated, creamy wit as opposed to this sparkly and light wit.
D - Easy drinking, easily sessionable on a hot night, and a great taste that just won't let down. Both on tap and in a bottle, it's a great beer.
Notes: Perfect for both the experienced and unexperienced beer-geek. This is a great Belgian-style American brew that can contend with the offerings from across the pond.

A - poured a very pale straw, very light color. Sight haze. Head was massive frothy large bubbled 2 fingers, dissipated to a nice soapy froth, although was always lively did not leave much lacing.
S - pungent banana and fruity yeast Esthers dominate the nose. Slight citrus and herbal notes follow, coriander, anise, and clove... Tons of fresh breadyness round out the nose, smells fresh and inviting.
T - I feel the taste follows the nose exactly, no surprises here... Tons of fruityness from the yeast with lots of banana, herbal notes prevalent with a good amount of citrusy coriander, still getting a slight licorice-esque anise and some clove. This taste is supported by a great bready biscuity wheat malt that is crisp and refreshing. Finishes with a clean citrusy bitter.
M - great mouthfeel, very refreshing. Crisp and dry with a good amount of body to the mouthfeel from the wheat.
O - one of the beers that got me into craft back in the day, over the years this hasn't changed and is still just as good today. Overall all just a perfect example of the style to me. Looks great, smells and tastes phenomenal and is really crisp and thirst quenching.
