4.3/5 rDev +7.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Pours a cloudy, light, straw-colored yellow; finger-width head; light lacing.
S: Deliciously sweet smell of citrus fruits, spicy hops, Belgian yeast, and bubblegum.
T: Light, but packed with a LOT of flavor. Lightly bitter hops with notes of cinnamon, spices, wheat, citrusy/orange, and coriander.
M: Fairly thin and lightly carbonated, but smooth on the tongue.
O: This is a pretty light IPA in terms of mouthfeel, but it's absolutely packed with complex flavors -- the PERFECT summer beer in my opinion. It's very delicious, but I don't think I'll get it again considering the asking price.

3.28/5 rDev -17.8%

picked up a bottle somewhere you yonder
a: served in a slim unibroue snifter, pale golden in color with a slight haze of floaters, the pour forms a white head with average retention
s: the prominent features of the nose are a witbier spiciness with coriander out front and a citrus/tropical hop nose, smells alright but the coriander level is a bit much
m: carbonation moderate-high, body lighter
t: coriander reigns from start to finish - it's really a bit much and gives an artificially floral, waxy taste, pils and wheaty malts form a light base, theres some clash with the citrusy hop flavors and the wit elements, moderately bitter, spritzy, lingering coriander, bright acid
o: seems to be a witbier at heart - pils/wheat malts and associated spice, but hopped up a bit, I don't think it works particularly well as a hybrid style, and some elements (especially coriander) of the wit side seem exaggerated, drinkable but not especially enjoyable
