Poured from a 24oz bottle into a wheat beer glass.
This one pours an obviously unfiltered cloudy yellow color with some huge chunks of sediment in it. The head is as prodigious as I'd expect from the style, with great retention and lacing. The aroma is also great, it's heavy on coriander, citrus, lemongrass, and a bit of a hop presence I wasn't expecting. The taste is also very good, probably the best witbier I've had. The coriander really shines, working well with the citrus and lemongrass to make a super-cool and very refreshing brew. There's a bit of wheat and a nice herbal hop aspect here too.
The mouthfeel is very good, it goes down very smoothly and easily. The drinkability is off-the-charts. I'd drink this all day every day if it were released in six-packs. As it stands now, it's too pricey for anything but an occasional treat. But what a treat it is! I hesitated when I was bringing this one up to the counter. "Ten bucks for a style (at a low ABV) I don't usually love? What am I doing?" Turns out the gamble was worth it, this is a delicious brew absolutely worthy of attention.
