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

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Pours a pale hazy yellow with lots of carbonation activity. 1 finger rocky white head.

S: Clean wheat smell with light hints of banana, spices (perhaps pepper/cloves) and lemon.

T: Very clean here with light banana and spices into a lemony zest with spices on the finish.

M: Creamy body with fizzy carbonation.

O: Despite my ratings, I have to give this a 4. There are a lot of other great beers in this category that are either cheaper, or edge this out in flavor. It's just too pricey for me to consider picking up again.

Pours a cloudy orangish yellow with an off white head that fades down to a fluffy lacing.

Smell is of citrus, yeast and some spice

It has a light body with hints of citrus, orange and yeast

Nice carbonation and a dry spicy finish

Big thanks to Jerz for this one

A - An orange-tinted yellow, with small half-finger white head. As cloudy as it gets! Fantastic, almost uniform lacing.

S - Strong hints of citrus mix in the nose with faint spices and a fresh light wheat scent. Yeast as well. Smells refreshing, if that's possible.

T - A nice light refreshing flavor. The spice is a faint coriander, while the citrus is a nice orange hint, and complimentary in nature. Some grassy and a bit tangy in the finish. Somewhat complex and balanced.

MF - Smooth, drinkable, ample carbonation that spikes towards the end, not unpleasantly. Light-medium in body.

O - Not terribly familiar with the style, but this beer is smooth, drinkable, tasty, and looks nice. I enjoyed it. Some of the best lacing I've seen yet as well.

Pours a cloudy hazy yellowish orange, smells delicious. Lots of citrus and coriander. The taste is nice and citrusy, lots of orange flavor. Leaves a nice 2 finger head. One of the best Belgian style witbiers I've had. Can't wait to have some again to do a proper review, I did this off of memory.

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

A cloudy, very pale yellow-colored brew with a fluffy, cream-colored head that has excellent retention but only average lacing at best.

Aroma is yeasty and very highly spiced. Lots of cloves and coriander.

Taste follows the nose; spices are very much in the lead here; an undercurrent of lemony citrus and yeasty twang. Vaguely sweet, low bitterness, somewhat grassy.

Very crisp and fizzy, solid carbonation, quenching and clean in the finish.

A nice Wit but perhaps a little heavy-handed in the spice department. Definitely one to try if you’re at all a fan of the style.
