Had this beer a few times, most recently was well over a year ago. Poured into a pint.

A - A highly transparent, almost water infused urine hue. A finger sized fluffy white head sits on top. Some fair lacing.

S - Coriander is packing a punch with one. Citrus is also in attendance with some nice sweet malts to back it up.

T - Follows the nose with equal balance, too much so such that no flavor really grabs your attention. More spice than I anticipated which adds some nice character.

M - Light bodied, highly drinkable, yet the carbonation is high for my liking.

O - For the style, it does the things it must do for a witbier. Nothing stands out to make this beer exemplary, although drinking a few would rarely be a hindrance.
