3.75/5 rDev +5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Hazy yellow brown with a little suspended sediment. The head is off-white, moderate in size, and soon fades to a scattering of foam on the surface. The lacing is fine-beaded and glass-coating. The carbonation is slight and slow-rising.
Aroma: Lots of orange rind and bread-like wheat malt dominate the aroma. There is an understated presence of coriander as well.
Taste: Opens with a strong wheat malt presence, allied with orange rind and coriander. These flavors play out harmoniously throughout the taste, with none dominating the others. The wheat malt flavors gently rise towards the close, finishing with a slight bitterness.
Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, very pleasant.
Drinkability/notes: A fine example of a witbier, in which all of the traditional facets shine.
Presentation: Packaged in an eleven-point-two ounce Euro-style long neck bottle, with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
Serving type: bottle

4.24/5 rDev +18.8%

11.2-ounce bottle poured into a weizen glass.
Appearance: Pours a hazy yellow gold with some yeasty chunkiness floating below the head, which is considerable. The head is a big, frothy white that is about two fingers in depth. Carbonation seems more moderate than I expected. Lacing less than I expected.
Smell: This beer has some fairly forward aromas, including orange, citrus, lemon, clove, ginger and spices. Appealing.
Taste: Nice, fairly complex flavor profile that follows the nose. I'm also getting a slight sense of banana that might just be in my head. Citrus and clove are the most dominant flavors. There are also some breadiness and grassy notes in there.
Mouthfeel: It's refreshing and sessionable, as a witbier should be.
Overall: This is a very nice wheat beer that I'm glad I picked up. It has a nice mix of flavors that are all traditional for the style. Would drink again.
Serving type: on-tap

This beer was an okay beer. It has an hazy and golden yellow color to it. The aroma was a good smell, at least I liked it. The taste was pretty good as well. I liked the green apple taste that it has. I could smell some vanilla in the aroma as well. I
