I finally got the chance to try one of these. One of my roommates loves this stuff so I got to finally get one for a review.

Appearance- Pours a cloudy yellow with a puffy whiteish head that is a little weak in the knees. It falls into a slick almost instantly. Very minimal lacing.

Smell- Smells like a proper witbier should. I am getting that wheaty, citrusy, and coriander blend.

Taste- For slightly light brew this packs a bunch of flavor. It packs all that witbier essence into a very drinkable concoction. The coriander and citrus notes are very prevelent.

Mouthfeel- Very clean and refreshing. It has a medium high to high carbonation to it which in the case of this beer works in it's favor. Not too heavy on the stomach either, Perfectly balanced

Overall- This has been a very enjoyable beer experience.
