Pours a pale straw color, nearly clear with a haze and murkiness that makes it slightly opaque. Wispy white head forms and quickly dissipates into nothing but a small ring around the edge of the beer. Smell hits first with apple skins, wheat, peppery notes, VERY slight kitchen spices (oregano?), pears, lemons, and some earthy notes. The taste follows through with a heavy clove and banana taste which surprisingly went nearly undetected on the nose. The pepper is noticeable all the way through, and it finishes with some apple skins, lemon zest, and wheat. A bit watery and very light on the body. Lots of carbonation, with a refreshing, crisp finish.
Decent witbier, refreshing and easy on the palate, this is something that would be very sessionable. Surprising complexity on the nose with a nice finish.

a cloudy light yellow pour, half inch of head.
smells like your typical wheat beer - coriander, orange peel, bready yeast tones.
tastes just like it smells with a slight hint of sourness. nothing really special about this one.
light body, high carbonation makes this very refreshing.
it's hard to honestly be impressed by a beer that's taken me so long to actually try. my brother in law left half a 12pk here, so i figured why not! not very unique, and not that different from most witbiers.
