Pours out a cloudy yellow with a three finger head! The retention is decent as it settles down to a thin lace around the glass but there is some sticking to the glass. If you put hear up to the glass you can hear the sizzle of carbonation bubbles.

The aroma is light with lemon zest, soft wheat, and some coriander. Refreshing aroma and clean.

The flavor is a nice refreshing mix of zesty citrus. I can detect fresh baked bread that is kind of soft. The yeast also adds to the bread flavor. Some nice coriander, lemon peel, and a touch of hop bitterness in the end.

The body is light, carbonated. and with a clean finish.

This is great Ale for summer time. Nothing is over the top and it is very refreshing to drink. I like it!!!

4.84/5  rDev +36%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

Sticky white lacing that persists. Very pale yellowish beige with a cloudiness and some sediment. A flashlight revealed more sediment in bottom of can trough so I poured some beer back into can and vigorously swirled.

Aroma of bread and oranges with a predominant yeast overtone. Actually smells like orange flavored dough rising.

Taste is fresh baked bread with malty sweet orange zest. The finish has a slight metallic twang, presumably from the can. Perhaps the most yeasty, bready witbier to date. The yeast aroma persists throughout the session while the metallic note fades into non-existence. There is a pleasant, lingering orange oil finish after several minutes.

For yeast lovers this is a superb witbier that achieves near perfection, at least for my palate.
