On tap at Gingerman in NYC, served in a Hoegaarden hex glass.
Pour: Hazy yellow straw with a finger and a half white head.
Smell: Belgian yeast, clove, cardamom, lemon rind
Taste: Follows the nose with Belgian yeast, wheat sweetness, lemon, and lots of spice. Clove to the max. Almost too much in my opinion.
Mouthfeel: Really light and goes down smooth. Would say refreshing and very drinkable, but the spiciness makes this hard to drink quickly.
Overall: A good classic, but I prefer other wits
Serving type: on-tap

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.
