Poured from 22 oz. bomber to a Boulevard Smokestack tulip. Best by 11/10/2011.
A: Lemon yellow with an amazing amount of unfiltered particulate in suspension. A frothy white head billowed up high, but didn't leave much after dissipating. Nice lacing.
S: A very Belgian nose with banana, bubblegum, wheat, and coriander.
T: Orange peel and sweet bubblegum yields to lemon and wheat with a finish of hops and coriander. A bit of alcohol lingers. Very nicely done.
M: Smooth and light-bodied with a touch of creaminess. Extremely drinkable. The hops dries the finish and there is a glowing warmth of alcohol at the finish as well.
O: I sampled the Boulevard companion to this collaboration the week after release, and judging by memory, I enjoy this version better. I'll be reviewing the Boulevard mate soon, though, so we'll see if memory serves. A trippel/pale wheat ale/IPA combo that is definitely worth trying.

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
