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.

White pillow like head. Bright yellow hazy yellow. Mild bitterness. Soft yeast taste. A crisp subtle and well balance. Mild banana lemon like aroma.

12 oz bottle, poured into a tulip glass at approximately 40 degrees F.

Appearance: Pours a quite cloudy pale straw gold, and forms a massive white head with good retention. Lacing was exceptional throughout.

Smell: Musty wheat mixed with a bouquet of light fruits, from pear to lemon-orange citrus. Some hints of spiciness lurk within the depths of the aroma.

Taste: Spices hit straightaway, coriander, clove, and white pepper, before receding a touch to let fruit esters swirl in. Waves of white grapes, pears, and a mildly tart citrus bearing hints of orange and lemon hit and mingle. A faint tone of bubblegum arises towards the finish, which leaves a lingering tart citrus and peppery spice aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Light and effervescent, this is a refreshing beer to drink.

Overall: A good witbier, solid in every aspect. I'm a fan.

One of the best out there. Try to get on draft if you can find it.

Not a fan of witbiers, and this was no exception.
