Poured from a tap into a pintish-type glass at Rí Rá in Las Vegas, Nev. Just a touch of head. Color had a lemon look. Slight film/lacing.
First smell was banana. Also some other fruits - lemon mainly - and some cloves? Very refreshing smell.
Refreshing first sip with lots of flavors. Wheat and grain seemed to dominate. Also a light spice of something. Maybe pepper? Could have been the cloves. Ending taste had some kind of blood taste. But I like my blood, so it worked out.
Really great mouthfeel. It stayed good throughout and was much better out of the tap then out of the bottle (like I’ve had before). Average carbonation.
I’ve had this before, but I really enjoy this beer. It was even better out of the tap. Perfect for the summer.
Serving type: on-tap

A-Cloudy straw colored body. Bit brighter, pale gold in light. Creamy two finger head. Spotty lacing.
S-Grains of wheat. Yeasty. Faint banana. Faint soap. Orange. Pear. Cider. Garden herbs: Basil, oregano.
T-Fresh squeezed orange. Wheat. Straw. Dark breads. Other unknown grains. Herbal.
M-Medium body. Medium carbonation. Love the herbal cool-spiciness of coriander. Sip starts slightly sweet & tart, continues with a smooth wheat-grain middle and ends with a bitter cinnamon/clove like drying, (most likely the yeast). Nice examples of sweet and bitter in the feels. Well rounded.
O-Classic witbier. Memorable. While not the pinnacle witbier, it does justice and delivers on all categories of what makes a beer good. Refreshing without compromising on flavor.
