Thank you Jim (ratedz) for this, and the Boulevard version also.
A – Nice hay golden color, but a little on the hazy side. Smaller white head, but still decent.
S – A nice spice sent, some orange peal smell and sweet malt, some pine but not as dominate at the citrus.
T – This has a little more banana flavor than the Boulevard version, but still had the nice pine/grass hop flavor and a sweet malty taste.
M – Medium bodied, but not as light as the Boulevards. Decent and very drinkable.
O – This has a little more wheat to it than the Boulevard version, it’s still good and if I hadn’t had them side by side I would have liked this one more, but IMO the Boulevard version is the dominantly better brew.

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
