4.05/5 rDev +1.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours an extremely pale gold color. Slightly hazy with high carbonation. About 1 1/2" of pure white head forms that has great retention, and decent lacing.
Smell: Very citrusy on the nose. Some orange rind present, maybe a bit of pineapple. Some wheaty malts present as well. A bit yeasty. Very nice.
Taste: I detect the wheat malts up front, followed by citrus, namely orange rind. A bit yeasty as well. Some fruity esters appear on the back end. I am struck by how clean tasting it is. I like it.
Mouthfeel/Overall: Light bodied, as is to be expected. Very fine, abundant carbonation. Great, as far as I'm concerned. Overall, I was very pleased with this beer. Very clean flavors that that seem devoid of alcohol presence. I will definitely buy some more of this.

3.28/5 rDev -17.8%

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
