On tap at Gingerman in NYC, served in a Hoegaarden hex glass.
Pour: Hazy yellow straw with a finger and a half white head.
Smell: Belgian yeast, clove, cardamom, lemon rind
Taste: Follows the nose with Belgian yeast, wheat sweetness, lemon, and lots of spice. Clove to the max. Almost too much in my opinion.
Mouthfeel: Really light and goes down smooth. Would say refreshing and very drinkable, but the spiciness makes this hard to drink quickly.
Overall: A good classic, but I prefer other wits
Serving type: on-tap

Review from 7/2010 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a pale, pale opaque amber. White ale is appropriate. Moderate snow white head and lacing, continuous bubble formation. Mild wheat aroma. Wheat and citrus, spicy pleasantly peppery carbonation. This carbonation is unusual and refreshing. Somewhat dry finish with lingering cardamon and bitter spices. Interesting and different.
Serving type: bottle
