4.83/5 rDev +16.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
12oz bottle poured into a Unibroue Flying U glass. Yeast added.
A: Pale yellow and somewhat murky. A foamy, bubbly one inch head adorns this beer. It Settles after a short time, but leaves decent lacing. Textbook Witbier appearance.
S: Slightly funky Belgian yeast, lemon zest, coriander, soft spices, a bit of orange, and a very mild grassy smell.
T: Light citric lemon zest gives way to coriander, orange, and soft spices (white pepper). Hints of wheat come out. The Belgian yeast is quite pleasant and provides a nice backbone. Finishes semi-dry with light funky yeast, some wheat, hints of citrus, and a bit of tartness.
M: Mouthfeel is light, a bit foamy, and has lively seltzer-like carbonation. Not quite as soft and creamy as I would like it, but this is really nit-picking.
D: Extremely high. This is one of the most drinkable beers I've ever had.
Notes: If I had to use one word to describe this beer, it would be 'soft.' An excellent interpretation of the style. This rivals anything I've had coming out of Belgium. Probably my favorite Witbier to date.

Appearance has a hazy, honey-colored beer with a small white head that fades fast and leaves just a little lace behind.
Smells include fruity notes of bananas, coriander spices, and some barnyard yeast aromatics. Very nice nose
The taste is partly dry but also has some sweetness to it from the fruits. Flavors include green grapes, for a white wine taste, plus citrus fruit such as lemons and oranges.
The high carbonation makes for a prickly mouthfeel, with a body somewhere between light and medium. The finish is semi-sweet with green grapes, but also some tartness of lemon.
Overall a very enjoyable beer; it's interesting how the different flavors play out for a sweet and dry aspect at the same time.
Thanks to Treyliff for this one!
