3.83/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 ounce brown glass bottle into a standard clear pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy light yellow with a decent amount of white foamy head. Leaves a little sticky lacing on the glass as it recedes slowly. maintains a thin white cap of foam throughout.

Smell: Floral hops with a sweet wheat underneath and a hint of spice. Very inviting.

Taste: Wow. I love the flavors in this beer. It starts out with a nice grapefruit or lemon citrus blast, then mellows to a lightly sweet, yeasty, and wheat-like Belgian witbier flavor. Really unique and refreshing.

Mouth feel: A little watery with light carbonation, like a good Belgian witbier.

Overall: As a big fan of Belgian Witbiers in the summertime, I love this beer! It has all of the flavors I love in a Belgian Wit, but with the added bonus of some nice subtle citrus hops. This is another winner from Deschutes, and has become my favorite beer of this summer.

Taste is citrus with coriander giving it just a little spice,strong light yeast character.
