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.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Sam Adams pint glass

A- very cloudy, light yellow in color. Two finger width head with nice sticky lacing

S- not the best part of this beer, but good nonetheless. Yeasty

T- amazing. Cloves and spice with a nice malty background.

M- nice carbonation, perfectly balanced. Very drinkable

Overall, this is one of the best beers I've ever tasted. Made me want to run out to the liquor store and buy more.

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

Appearance: Probably the best look of any wit. Lots of foam and great lacing. Thick banana yellow in hue.

Smell: Banana, clove, yeast, and some minerals. Not amazing, but it hits all the right notes.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Lots of clove with a hint of banana. A bit sour in the finish. Definitely some grape/wine flavors here. Mouthfeel is very full-bodied and crisp. I taste some lemon as well.

Overall Drinkability: I was excited to try this one. It's quite refreshing despite the fact that it's a bit heavier. Overall, I'm not in love with this, but I definitely recommend it as a very good witbier.
