Poured into a large tulip glass a deeply hazed and milky orange/blonde with a nice looking two finger bone white head that left no lacing as it settled.Citrus fruits,yeasty phenols,and sweet alcohol in the nose,I liked the fruity tones and the alcohol was actually appetizing more than in your face.Starts out with a decent shot of citrus fruit but the spiced phenols play a big role along with fusel alcohol as it wars,thru it all the citric flavors are there wich I liked.Lightly tart and quite alcoholic I have to say I liked this beer,obviously nothing like the "smaller" version I gotta say i liked it more than most of the others.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 7/4/2014. Pours extremely hazy golden orange color with a nice 2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of orange, pear, apple, lemon, orange rind, apple skin, coriander, light banana, floral, wheat, bread, pepper, clove, and earthy yeast esters. Nice and pleasant aromas; with good balance and complexity of malt, spices, and yeast esters. Taste of pear, apple, orange zest, lemon, light banana, wheat, coriander, bread, honey, floral, light clove, and earthy yeast esters. Lingering notes of light fruits, citrus, wheat, coriander, light clove, bread, honey, and earthy yeast esters on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance and complexity of flavors; with a good malt/spice balance, but feels a bit toned down in flavor for 7.5%; with zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very good high gravity witbier. Very nice balance and complexity of flavors; and very smooth and easy to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
