.75L bottle into a tulip. Batch number 2011-3; Best By date 02-2012.
A: Clear, golden body with lots of carbonation sports a thick, creamy, ivory head with good staying power. Sticky lacing, too.
S: Grassy, green hops and a nice hit of orange. I also pick up the sage, but not so much lemongrass. Definitely a lot going on, and pretty well-blended nose for something so busy-sounding.
T: Witbier up front, IPA in the back. Good bittering towards the middle and end, and not just hops--a distinct herbal twang, as well. The orange helps the whole thing along, mingling nicely throughout the sip. Just a bit alcoholic. There's a slightly off-putting soapiness to it as well.
M: Nice mouthfeel, pleasant, high carbonation. Not too thick for a wit of this size, very easy drinking on a warm day.
O: Not a bad quaff. Don't remember what I paid for it, so I can't comment on the value, but for a sort of hybrid, it's actually pretty tasty. I like its pronounced orange/spice, and the round hop bitterness in the end--a manlier version of a witbier. Good stuff, once in a while.

Pours a pale golden colour with a bit of cloud; off-white head sticks around nicely. Lacing is gorgeous. Looks great.
Smells interesting. Citric, tangy with a touch of sour. Lemon, some grapefruit and mild phenolic notes at the back. Rindy, but fruity. Quite pleasant.
Creamy upfront with light vanilla notes, then lots of tangy fruit. Lemon with a slight vinegar acidity as well, cidery and slightly woody, touch of buttery Chardonnay on the back. Zippy and refreshing, a lot of tang but doesn't lean too heavy on the bitterness. Really enjoyable.
Smooth mouthfeel, but a bit of bitter puckering on the back, which is unnecessary.
Great quenching Summery beer. Delicious.
