3.52/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Serving type: 12-ounce bottle. The “BEST BY” date printed on the label is “10/31/13.”

Appearance: Poured into a tulip. The color is cloudy, lemonade straw. A finger or so of thickish head left a bubbly skim, ring around the edge, and lacing along the glass.

Smell: Lots of coriander and pepper spice upfront. It has a nice base of bready malts, a little funky yeast that complements the spice, and a spritz of lemon.

Taste: It has a full-bodied mouthfeel and the coriander, pepper spice, and complementing yeast funk dominate. They merge seamlessly so I can barely tell them apart. Bready pale malts and lemonade-like lemon round it out.

Drinkability: A good beer. The flavor and aroma are both strong and enjoyable.

Best by 10/20/14:

Pours clouded lemon-drop yellow with a fluffy white head. Trailing lacing sticks.

The smell is of wheat tang, orange peel, lemon, coriander and leafy notes.

The taste of sweettart mixes with spice and citric bitterness in the refreshing finish.

Creamy smooth, this is an enjoyable unique brew. Witbier meets American IPA, and it works!

Clear golden appearance in a pint glass, minimal head as served at a restaurant.
Taste is smooth and light. Belgian yeast prevalent but not overwhelming. Hops also on the light side. Smooth, refreshing, enjoyable. A decent offering, not great. A good fun session beer just in time for summer.

12oz brown bottle with a freshness date. Being a "Wit" in a way the yeast was decanted in the glass.

LOOK: Turbid, yellow straw, nice head

SMELL: Fresh herbs, fruity, citric, yeast, bready, spice, hoppy

TASTE: Smooth, bitty, bitter, spicy, dry, yeast, fruity, citrus pith, bready, nutty, medicinal herbs, chalky finish

I love the whole concept of the style, sort of a mish-mash of styles but it works and works here as well. Worth a getting a sixer of it IMO.
