Reviewed from session notes.

It poured a clouded pale straw yellow with another lackluster head performance, no lacing. But it smells of coriander and chamomile tea over pale malts (both American and Belgian). Tastes of those malts with a healthy dose of orange peel sharpness and just a little pinch of bitter at the finish. Light fluffy mouthfeel...not bad overall.

Ba Review #193
Served On: 07/19/2012
Glassware: Wheat Glass
Labeled ABV: 4.8%
Date/ Code: 2012 Release

Had this beer just before leaving for vacation a few days ago. Just now getting around to posting the review.

Look: Poured a cloudy yellow. Head was a 1/2-finger of white foam. Lacing formed nicely on the glass. Carbonation bubbles were minimal.

Smell: A typical Witbier aroma. Peppery coriander, clove, some faint banana. Nothing special was in the nose.

Taste: Again, very typical to the style. The coriander hit first with hints of sweet banana making up the middle. The finish was a long lasting mango or kiwi that faded into a clean aftertaste.

This was a textbook Witbier in my opinion. I would say that DFH Namaste is probably a good comparison here. I've had others that were very similar, but the level of quality is probably what sets this beer apart from the others.

From the 355 ml. bottle marked 316B12. Sampled on July 19, 2012. It pours hay-yellow with cloudiness and a fizzy white head that lingers for the session.

The aroma is true to the style with a powerful spicy coriander character, orange peel, and pale malts.

The body is light and easy. The taste is vibrant with sweet malts, spice, coriander, citrus, and a clean crisp hop finale. This is a fine rendition of the classic White style.

3.3/5  rDev -10.1%

Poured from the bottle into a Hoegarden glass.

A nice unfiltered and glowing yellow lemon orb body, with a fluffly white cap even a little hint of orange yeast residue sprinkled on top from the bottom of the bottle. Some good carbonation as well.

Nose is a nice orange, hints of grass and earth, small wheat density, pretty solid and simple wit going on here to smell.

Palate hits with a little bit of we body, but mostly the flavor is of subdued malts and carbonation. Finishes fairly clean but mostly of club soda. Fruit character hinting at seems non existent in the palate. A little bit of creamy texture sneaks in making it slightly better than average.

Overall kind of run of the mill for a witbier, not so much doing it for me, but nothing horrific either.

3.3/5  rDev -10.1%

Super dirty super pale dead yellow color with a big effervescent white head. Dried banana bread on the nose with clove and touches of citrus and corriander. Some spice.

highly carbonated body. Faint banana and bubble gum flavors with bready malts, a touch of tropical fruit and a spicy dry finish. Not deeply complex or overpowering but good flavors with good drinkability. Not nearly the best or anything out of the ordinary but much better than flying dogs in heat wheat . Crisp cool and refreshing. Not bad.

A = Pale golden color with a slight orange haze. Good head, nice retention and lacing seems nice.

S = Yeasty. Nice - just like a wit should.

T = Good yeasty taste to it too. An underlying spice taste is slightly discernable - maybe orange/coriander.

M = I like this. Lingers in my mouth a bit with a touch of creaminess on my tongue.

O = A pretty decent example of a Belgium Wit Bier. I'll pick up some more of these for a bbq later in the week.
