Reviewed on 8/11/11
Poured in to a tulip. 2 finger, fluffy white head. Pale amber, clear body.
Smell wasn't very IPA-like. Big orange and coriander aroma. Some peppery spice. Mild bitterness. Kinda citrust and floral with a mild maltiness.
Taste starts off with peppery, coriander and a mild maltiness. Moves towards a citrusy and floral hop flavor and then a mild bitterness. Some wheat and grainy flavors.
Mouthfeel feel had medium body with medium/high carbonation with a dry finish.
Overall it was pretty tasty with very good drinkability. So signs of abv and it was refreshing.

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
