Drank from a bottle poured into a glass. Good appearance. A murky yellow color. Thick white head that lasted the entire drinking time. The smell is decent with a strong lemon and mild touch of banana. Mild carbonation with a smooth feel. Tastes like it smells. I agree with others that this would be a good ale to drop an orange slice in and drink on a hot summer day.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Whitish orange color and semi-hazy. White head with good retention. Visible bubbles.

Fresh floral and citric aroma. Wheat and yeast character.

Malt flavor of fresh baked wheat bread with live yeast. Orange and coriander spice compliments the citric hop character. HInt of honey sweetness.

Light bodied and highly carbonated. Weak yeast and wheat texture. Light bodied for the style but refreshing, nonetheless.

Descent witbier. Easy drinking and good flavor.
