look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

pale lemon sorbet color - very pretty with a huge head that slowly dissipates to a 1/4 inch head that stays the course with you. smells like a bread box no longer used but remembers its salad days. taste is so refreshing that it's hard to attend to flavor: a good beer's job, no? does carry a tang of lemon, but for the most part, the great carbonation balances that bread-dough, yeasty wheat taste that in lesser witbiers weighs down the drink. rather than profile, i guess you can say that the flavors function as a silhouette of the *beer* in se. i especially enjoy the bitter - smoothly bitter - kick at the start.
