Poured in to a tulip. Bright golden color with some haze. 1.5 finger, rocky, pure white head. Good lacing as well.

Aroma had some citrus and floral notes. A bit bready. Wheat aroma stands out. Coriander comes through really nice with the orange and spicey notes.

Flavor had a good amount of floral and orange notes upfront. Some light maltiness and wheat flavors. Finish had a mild bitterness with subtle spiceyness from the coriander. Definitely orange type bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel was medium/light body with medium carb. Crisp and dry finish.

Good beer overall. Extremely drinkable. Nice, refreshing citrus flavors.

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.
