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.

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.
