Served in a mason jar at Coalhouse Pizza in Stamford, CT.
Appearance: Cloudy straw yellow with a white head. Head died down to a persistent 1/16" thick foam across the top with plenty of lacing across the top.
Smell: Not a lot when first served at the table, but as it warmed up you could begin to smell the malt with a nice hint of orange and lemon.
Taste: Quite nice. Perfect Witbier flavor - nice malt with wheat and grain notes accented with orange and spices. Tasty, but not overpowering - incredibly well balanced among all the flavors, and nothing is muted. I don't think I've had a beer this well balanced with each flavor sticking out so well on its own.
Mouthfeel: Good carbonation - cleanses the palate nicely, but not scouring.
Overall / Drinkability: Insanely drinkable, I could easily have had another. A really great example of a witbier - deep in flavor, but still just as light and crisp and clean as you would expect in a Wit. Went really well with the pizzas I had. I cannot wait to try again someday.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Typical hazy pale yellow color. Nothing notable about 1 finger semi-soapy head. Really poor retention and no signs of lacing, granted it was serve in a pint glass.
S: Banana, clove, graham cracker malts, coriander perfumes, but fruit esters seemed to dominate.
M: Lighter bodied and creamier feel, but still refreshing with a moderately high carbonation level. Dry, crisp, and tart finish is superb.
T: Considerably more complex than the aroma suggests. Banana and cloves, floral hops, scant lemongrass tartness, white pepper and coriander spicing, orange pith gives it a dry and tart character on the finish. Slight metallic, but a definite medicinal character builds as well.
