Had this beer at a Christmas party, so unfortunately it's a bottle review.
Appearance- Pale and cloudy with a small head but nothing extreme.
Smell- Has that distinctly Belgian complex peppery smell complemented by lemony citrus notes. Surprisingly complex but not mind-blowing
Taste- This is one of this beer's strongest suits. Excellent depth of flavor for this style. Has a nice peppery flavor throughout, well balanced and slightly sweet with a dry finish.
Mouthfeel- Heavy for a witbier but not bad.
Drinkability- Not as drinkable as I'd expect based on the ABV and style. I could see myself having more than one but it'd be easy to get tired of it.
Overall an interesting, well thought-out beer. Nothing spectacular but give it a try!
