4.18/5 rDev +0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
12oz bottle served in a pint glass
This beer is a very cloudy yellow gold with a bright white head in the glass. The head is very sticky and is leaving a lot of lace. The smell is of zesty orange and lemon mixed with wheat and phenolic yeast maybe a tad weak though. The taste is of wheat and malty sweetness with tart orange and lemon providing bitterness with a bunch of spice coming along for the ride, coriander leads the way. In addition there is a good deal of yeasty flavor. Overall things tie together fairly well but the yeast flavor may be just a bit too dominant. The mouthfeel is crisp and light with a fair level of embedded carbonation it leaves a peppery bite in the aftertaste and finishes a touch dry, nice and lively and very refreshing. All together this is a good example of the style, the spicing isn't overdone which tends to be a flaw of many other wits, with a touch less yeastyness this would be very good.
