Coming back and reviewing this again after a few years. My palate has had time to develop and I can judge this beer a bit more objectively than before.
Poured from a chilled 11.2 oz bottle into a frosty faceted pint glass.
A = a hazy, almost milky light gold with a 2 finger head after an easy pour.
S = bready yeasts, coriander, wheat, a touch of banana and cloves, citrus
T = floral and spicy, peppery, crisp... there is a lingering sour note that is rather pleasant. not as sweet as some other wits I've had, but the spice and floral character is awesome in my opinion
M = medium carbonation accents the spiciness of this beer well, and there is a creaminess to the mouthfeel.
O = a solid, widely available wit, and a personal favorite.
