A: At first glance, extreme carbonation. Color is a pure yellow with moderate cloudiness. Typical of the style. Half finger head that dissipates. Little to no lacing.
S: Bread. Coriander. Malt. Orange twinge. It puts it all out there in the first whiff.
T: Yeasty bitter-sweet orange bread. The citrus flavor is only a complement to the pureness of the wheat essence. The taste is two-fold. Bitter crispness up front with a smooth fruity twinge at the end. I was surprised at the balance of this beer.
M: One word keeps coming to mind. Balance. Smooth clean flavor as it enters the palate. Like the test drive of a new car, the fullness of the carbonation and the boldness of the wheat take my senses to new appreciation for this style.
O: I was pleasantly reminded of the refreshing aspect of this style. I picture myself out in the back yard with the guys playing a pickup game of football, and one of the guys saying "Hey, anyone thirsty?" I look and the changing leaves of fall, remember my mother’s pumpkin pie and think to myself, "You know, a Witte would sit right just about now."

BOD 4/9/14. Slightly hazy golden pour with a nice head. Nice lacing and only normal retention. Nose of Belgian yeast, lemon, orange and spice - probably coriander. Light medium body with a somewhat slick texture. Above average carbonation that imparts a nice effervescence on the finish. Laid back flavor profile that is balanced and has a bit of complexity. It begins with tart lemon over orange, progresses to a bit of spice and ends with a light biscuit cracker. The finish is effervescent and leaves you with a light tart bitterness. A bit more flavor intensity and this would be outstanding.
