Notes/Commercial Description:
Our interpretation of a traditional Belgian wheat beer. Brewed with a generous portion of wheat and spiced with coriander and Curacao orange peel, this beer is fruity, refreshing and slightly cloudy in appearance.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Had of tap at a local pub in s tall stemmed drinking vessel. Nice color.. cloudy straw yellow with a decent head. Spicy aroma, hints of some lemon and grain. Taste of yeast, citrus, some spice, with a hint of banana and orange. Crisp and clean on the palate, very refreshing. A good representation of a Wit,... worth seeking out.

Serving type: on-tap

3.98/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

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.

4.58/5  rDev +10.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

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.
