$4.95 @ Charles Street Liquors, Boston, MA:
Presentation: 750 ml brown magnum with no freshness date.
Appearance: Sandy yellow and completely hazed over, head retention is lacking with on a wispy lace that barely clings to the glass.
Smell: Chalky, earthy yeast with a slim rouse of spiciness; dusty coriander and orange peel. Mildly phenolic and tart in the nose.
Taste & Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Crisp with a thick slickness that does not want to leave the palate. Light tartness throughout, strong wheat malt flavor. Earthy yeast is unshakable with faint orange peel and coriander in tow. Spiciness is one sided and goes no further very little depth.
Drinkablity & Notes: My palate got lost in the tartness, it seemed the flavors did not meld well and everything was separate. A good brew though there are many witbiers that fit the shoe better than this one.
Serving type: bottle

Slightly hazy yellow color with a flashy carbonation and a thick two fingers head with great retention and leaving a wall of laces.
Light but nice aroma of white bread, orange, distant banana and coriander.
Predominant Belgian yeasty flavor with notes of fresh acid oranges, white bread and a lemony tartness. Dry and acid aftertaste.
Light to medium body with good carbonation and an acid feeling.
I love Ommegang, but I haven't seen on this Wit much of a difference to a Hoegaarden (ps. I haven't tasted it for a while), it is fairly assertive, nevertheless if the intention was to produce a pleasant refreshing session beer that is not not dull, mission accomplished.
