A - Poured from a bottle into a Belgium "satan" glass. It almost looked white during the pour, but then as it settled down it became a light yellow color but still not transparent. An inch and a half head of bigger foam bubbles formed. After a couple minutes the head broke down to just some lace around the edge.
S - It smells like a toned down wiezenbier. Ripe banana, peach and a hint of lemon. Very noticeable but by no means overpowering.
T - Tastes almost like it smells. But there is a sparkling water taste, which does not really have a taste to it.
M - Carbonation, crisp, light and refreshing.
D - A nice drink for the hot days. Subtle flavors. It is not a personal favorite of mine, but it is supposedly the "original Belgian Witbier". How can you not like the original?
