A witbier bursting with good karma. Made with dried organic orange slices, fresh-cut lemongrass and a bit of coriander, this Belgian-style white beer is a great thirst quencher.

A : light yellow, a bit cloudy with a healthy head

S: citrus (orange & lemon) are very well balanced

T: smooth, almost a perfect reflection of the smell

M: light and refreshing, but maybe a bit too thin for my taste

This is what I expect in a witbier, but nothing outstanding to mention. It has good balanced aroma and nice smooth finish. A very drinkable brew, I will definitely have it again.

750ml into a tulip. Pours a fully hazed pale milky yellow, minor head lasted briefly, little lacing.

Aroma is sharp, citrus although not obvious orange and a hint of something from the medicine cabinet.

The flavor is muted. Dominant taste spike is of potpourri. Zero bitter. The aftertaste of what there is flees the mouth leaving a nondescript sensation rather than a flavor. Thin watery mouthfeel.

my grandmother's house was large, many closets across many bedrooms, none were sliders. Hiding in some, in the dark, I could taste a smell. When I encounter this now, in a wit, it doesn't appeal although the memory is pleasant.
