Appears hazy yellow with a small thin head.
It smells strongly of citrus. I get an orange peel citrus smell as well as a citrus hop smell. I get a spicy Belgian yeasty smell and a mild dry spice like smell from the beer as well.
It tastes initially of coriander. I get a banana type of a yeasty flavor as well. The beer then moves on to a mild dry citrus flavor. The beer ends with a nice pairing of bitterness and spicy Belgian yeast. I am surprised how well the classic wit spices and yeast goes so well with the hops of the beer.
The carbonation is moderate low and there is a somewhat think mouthfeel to the beer.
Overall a slightly refreshing complex, unique and flavorful beer. I might just have to pick up another bottle or two of this.

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
