12oz bottle poured into pint

Clear soft golden glow with a thin topping of white head. Fades out completely without retention or lacing.

Notes of cracked pepper and spice with a formidable sweetness. Touches of honey and yeast with fruity esters and light warmth.

Yeasty and sweet up front with honey. Cracked pepper, assorted spice, wheat and straw. Thicker backbone, touch of citrus and fruit. Slightly cloying on the back end with a boozy spike.

Fuller medium body, slightly higher carbonation level, sticky and bubbly on the tongue. Fairly average, too sweet and unnecessary alcohol level. I usually look for refreshing, snappy flavors in witbiers, but this doesn't really do it for me.

Available around here, but thanks to Juliusseizure (Reddit) for send me this as an extra.

Pours a lighter looking fizzy almost 1 finger head fades at med pace with little lacing, typical for a double wit though, fairly hazy golden tan Orange color.

Nose plenty of wheat, lots of wheat and wit beer base malts, then wit spices, light coriander clove like, orange peel zest, etc. Then lots of Belgian esters, fruity esters, hint of green apple and light booze with phenols.

Taste similar, fluffy airy malt with lots of carbonation, plenty of wheat and wit flavors, light grassy like malt, touch of banana, spices like clove, coriander, and other spices, light Clementine like citrus rind, etc. Belgian yeast takes over, light fruity esters, hint of booze with phenols and hint of green apple and fruity esters. Finish is drier but sticky sweet at the same time, lingering wheat and esters with light booze phenols.

Mouth is med bodied, fluffy with lots of carb, light warming booze

Overall not bad, not a big fan of the style and usually not the brewery either but this was pretty decent for a double wit. Nice lighter end spices, nice wheat flavors, nice Belgian yeast additions esters and booze phenols, and fairly drinkable.
