3.5/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A - Pale straw body that is cloudy. Tall white head with slow dissipation.

S - Definitely some kind of citrusy wheat & yeast funk going on; some find it favorable, some don't. No hop presence. Lemon and orange esters are predominant. Very low phenol hint.

T - Medium wheat malt flavor, with lemon/orange esters creating a tartness. No unusual phenols to this Wit.

M - Medium to light body that is high in carbonation, creating a great fizz on the tongue.

D - A zangy citrus wheat.

---

Not the best from Bavik, hate it or love it, but it's a really cheap Wit.

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.
