A - Two finger-thick sudsy white head that is dense and yields wonderful head retention. The fluffy head slowly recedes from its original appearance to that of a thin film over the course of 30+ seconds. There's a slight haze, though nothing like a German Hefeweizen, more hazy than; not dense. Carbonation seems medium-high.
S - Belgian yeast strain comes out like that of a Golden Ale, with spices of coriander and Grains of Paradise. Very mild orange zest comes across, though seems to all be well masked under the front-forward unmalted wheat. No vegetable nuances come through, which means they chose the proper spices and combination of them!
T/M - Yeasty, medium-high body. A slightly sweet orange citrus comes through on the palate with a dry crisp finish. A kiss of tartness comes through on the palate, though to-style. Very low levels of bitterness come through via the hops. Slight graininess via the wheat washes over the palate as well.
D/C - What a refreshing little beer. At 5.1% and lacking any assertive flavor, this beer definitely registers as a Session Beer. The hot weather had today definitely makes it an enjoyable delight. The beer grows on me as I drink more of it without fatiguing my head or palate. Though not a thick Hefeweizen, it's also not supposed to be. A great example of Witte!

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.
