Poured into a pint glass from a 12oz bottle.

A - The beer pours a slightly hazy straw, forming a fluffy 1 inch white head with light lacing.

S - Strong corriander and lemon. Very inviting!

T - Wheat malt, corriander, lemon and banana flavor swirled together. Very flavorful and complex!

M - Light and smooth.

D - Nice full flavor, easy mouthfeel, and low alcohol make this witbier a true session ale. I think I could easily down a sixer of this. Definitely one of my favorites from Flying Dog!!!

06/27/12 Very well balanced taste with a reasonable body. May prove a wee bit heavy, texture-wise, for the long haul, but if you want a kick starter for a non-school night you could do worse than to start here. I'll be back!

Cloudy dull yellow. Lots of bubbly off white froth sits on top. It leaves plenty of lace as I drink as well. Strong aroma. Almost saison like in its lemon and leather smells. Also some evident corriander spicing. Pretty fragrant, but not overly done in my opinion. Taste is very good. Nice malted wheat base with a strong presence of orange and lemon peel as well. Corriander adds some complexity. Very tasty well done Wit. I'll get more if I see it again.

A: poured according to style, but, into a tulip glass. ( Yeah, I'm wrong..) Extreme pale haze. Frothy head.

S: Wheat mecca. Corrinder. Sweet fruit, malt.

T: Big time candied fruit, spice, wheat breat, malts, yeast. Everything you would want in a classic wit.

M/D: Low carbonation, sweet up front, a bit sour at the rear. Very crisp finish. This is right on the heels of Allagash. I am just in lust with this beer.

The beer pours a hazy pale gold color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a refreshing pale and wheat malt scent along with bitter orange peel and coriander. The Belgian yeast adds a wonderful fruity character. The taste is good. It has a crisp pale and wheat malt flavor that goes down easy and finishes with a lemony zest and a coriander spice. It's highly refreshing, which I'm sure is the point. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a damn good wit. It's got a great aroma and taste. It's light, fruity, spicey, and highly drinkable. Great job guys.

I had a couple of very different experiences with the appearance of this beer. The first couple I had were awkwardly clear with an eerie pale color and large flakes of sediment/yeast. Not so good. But after I left the sixer for a few days and the sediment settled, it agitated really well before and after pouring and a couple swirls which made the perfect cloudy pale appearance a wit should. FYI.

Solid body of pale golden straw in color, half centimeter white cap head that lasted well throughout the beer. The aroma had a lot of wheaty zest and coriander, some pepper and lemony zest as well. The taste was quite wheaty and bready up front with the unfiltered aspect of the beer showing up. Coriander worked well as a good compliment to the taste, balancing well with the other flavors. Lemony zest kept the mouthfeel tangy, even some orange shows up, and a peppery aftertaste.

Overall: I generally think American made wits flavors are a bit rigid and don't meld as well as their Belgian counterparts, but this one is much further along than most American versions in that respect. Good appearance, a good balance of flavors, and quite refreshing. One of my favorites from Flying Dog so far.
