A: Cloudy yellow with a golden hue. Medium sized head with little retention that left a nice layer of lacing.

S: Citrus and wheat.

T: A lot of citrus flavor, can really taste the orange here. Refreshing and sweet.

M: Decent amount of carbonation. Bitter yet smooth.

O: I like this one, but I think there's slightly too much citrus. I wouldn't recommend adding any additional slices of orange or lemon. Still a great beer.

BBD 232/14. Pours a pale yellow with a very slight haze. Massive head with excellent lacing and retention. Very nice Belgian nose of coriander, orange and yeast with a slight pepper note. Light medium body with a smooth texture that has some creamy feel to it as well. Slightly above normal carbonation that yields a nice effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is complex and well balanced. The flavors of the nose are all present, with coriander and orange being most prevalent. The finish is crisp with just a touch of pepper underlying the coriander. While not as flavor intensive as Allagash White, this one is still outstanding.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - Slightly more than a finger's worth of crisp audibly fizzy snow white colored uniform frothiness... Modest at best retention gives way to a fairly thick lacing of much the same characteristics... The color is a moderately hazed pale lemony yellow straw... Mostly still with just a few stray carbonation bubbles here and there... Some additional carbonation bubbles cling to the sides of the glass... There is also some suspended sediment throughout...

S - Fresh cracked wheat... Light Belgian yeast notes... Orange zest... Lemon zest... White pepper... Perhaps just a slight hint of sage... Somewhat subdued, but the aromas work well together...

T - All components alluded to by the nose are present on the palate... However, these component become somewhat muddled and do not compliment one another as they do in terms of aroma...

M - Medium bodied... Crisp carbonation... Much denser than I expected... A slightly soapy finish...

D - Not a bad Witbier by any means, but not one of my first (or second) options either... The best adjective I can come up with overall is pedestrian... Average at best in most categories... The mouthfeel distracts a bit as its slightly off putting... However, this one will serve it's purpose on a hot summer's day...

This is a very pale, moderately clear beer. The head is enormous and brilliantly white. I expected a little more haze in the brew. The smell is typical of the style. Sweet and fruity, with lots of citrus and light herb scents. The smell is a little malty, notably sweet, and it has a slightly spice and earth flavor. Almost no bitterness of hop presence in the taste. Very light in body. It's a refreshing and nice summer brew, but is overall fairly average for the style.
