The strength here more than any other brew I've ever had us in its texture. It's just creamy and delicious with a wonderful cloudy appearance, richly smooth and subtle flavors of zest and corriander, and a refreshing light aroma to match. Great for any occasion.
There are stronger more bold witbiers but this one serves as being generally strong in every category, and would be an excellent step for anybody who isn't looking for intensity but who would like to find something more interesting and more satisfying than the mass produced water beers.

3.9/5 rDev +2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
Appearance: Hazy, yellow color with two fingers of creamy white head that fade with a uniform curtain of lace.
Aroma: Wheat malt, yeast, clove, hints of banana and lemon
Taste: Crisp, wheat malt up front with a good amount of carbonation that pops in your mouth. Towards the finish some spiciness and banana oil builds, but still a lot of carbonation prickling the tongue. Finish has a slightly lingering banana and orange rind taste.
The Rest: A solid white ale; a good definition of the style.

Hazy, pale yellow body with a small, white head. Retention leaves a lot to be desired. Light carbonation.
Bright coriander and black pepper over a musty, wheat backbone. Yeast is noticeable. For the simplicity of it, it's very pleasant.
Pretty simple affair here, like the aroma. Sweet wheat right up with a hint of citrus hops. Plenty of coriander. Pepper on the finish.
Light and refreshing. Decent carbonation. Clean, slightly sweet finish.
For the style, it's a worthy contender. Easy to drink and enough flavor to please, this is a solid summer beer.
