Picked this up in steamboat springs
Appearance: Pale gold/straw colored with a great big head that was pure white and made of big, fragile bubbles.
Aroma: Hoppy zest paired with spicy and yeasty wheat. It is sweet and peppery with hints of lemon.
Flavor: Peppery wheat flavors explode, but are reigned in by lemon citrus from the hops. The hop character is quite Northwest, contributing great sweetness with bitterness to balance, not overwhelm. The finish is dry, with nice woody/earthy taste. A very tasty beer.
MF: Medium-bodied, much like a wheat or light belgian ale. Finish is crisp and the flavor is lingering until the next drink.
Serving type: bottle

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
