look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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.
