From notes on 07/17/12:
Best before: 12/04/13; Poured in a pint glass.
A - Two inches of white, creamy/lightly fluffy head with good retention; Pale white/yellow in color with a cloudy appearance; Bits of lacing left around the glass
S - Bit of yeast and spice, with a bigger amount of lemon and orange citrus, floral and soapy notes; The level of spice seems to be about right
T - More spice in the flavor than the nose, which I like quite a bit; Has a floral, coriander, and pink bubble gum quality to it; Yeast, wheat, clove, and very light citrusy fruits also contribute to the flavor; Overall flavor is lightly sweet with hints of tartness as well
M - Carbonation is zesty, but still under moderate; Body leans more toward lighter bodied than medium; Finish is just a touch on the dry side
O - This Witbier seems to be the most popular of all offerings within the style, and for good reason. It showcases a pretty tasty flavor with a nice, enjoyable level of spice, and is just a good all-around Belgian ale. There's no doubt that I could enjoy a few more of these brews during this time of year and definitely look forward to having one again soon.
