look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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
