This beer was a wonderful example of the style. It hit on all the major points that I look for in a good witbier. Highly recommended for those who like the witbier of hefeweizen styles.
This beer poured opaque straw yellow with a thin white lacey head, even with the slight bottle swirl. Though thin, the head was well-retained throughout tasting. The nose has a distinct crisp citrus spice with a slight floral hop background, and was quite pleasant.
On the tongue it was brightly effervescent and smooth with terrific body. The citrus (lemon) and spice (clove, nutmeg and coriander) notes hinted at by the nose hit strongly at the front, supported by a but of banana yeastiness in the background. All of the flavors blend smoothly into a crisp finish.
Quite a pleasure to drink.

09/19/11 At Rattle n Hum, NYC. Hoped this would live up to the hype. The claim that it is a 'bucket list' brew
Since Real Beer drinkers will live forever, there ain't no bucket list', but to consider oneself a real beer drinker, make sure you try this before you pay your last tab.
Worth more than these words.
