look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Bottle: a standard 330mL brown bottle with a stylish macro label.

Appearance: pours out a strong cloudy yellow with a half-inch of white head that drops to a thin cap. Plenty of lacing down the side of the glass.

Aroma: some citrus and spices accompanying Belgian yeast and light wheat.

Taste: pretty much follows the nose - a decent macro-orientated Belgian witbier. Citrus and wheat take the fore here.

Aftertaste: the wheat and yeast last the distance beyond the citrus and spice.

Mouth feel: lighter to moderate in feel with a moderate carbonation. A touch dry on the finish.

Overall: a decent and very drinkable Belgian macro witbier. A reasonable price at AU$58 a case of 24 x 330mL also. I'll definitely have it as funds permit.
