This is an excellent wheat brew. It pours bright cloudy yellow with very little head. Served with a lemon. The beer in itself was quite citrussy. It had a fruity flavor that did not overpower the wheat malts. Cirtrussy in the mouth but very drinkable. Very good.
Serving type: on-tap

A-Cloudy straw colored body. Bit brighter, pale gold in light. Creamy two finger head. Spotty lacing.
S-Grains of wheat. Yeasty. Faint banana. Faint soap. Orange. Pear. Cider. Garden herbs: Basil, oregano.
T-Fresh squeezed orange. Wheat. Straw. Dark breads. Other unknown grains. Herbal.
M-Medium body. Medium carbonation. Love the herbal cool-spiciness of coriander. Sip starts slightly sweet & tart, continues with a smooth wheat-grain middle and ends with a bitter cinnamon/clove like drying, (most likely the yeast). Nice examples of sweet and bitter in the feels. Well rounded.
O-Classic witbier. Memorable. While not the pinnacle witbier, it does justice and delivers on all categories of what makes a beer good. Refreshing without compromising on flavor.
Serving type: bottle
