From the big bottle in a snifter, this wit pours a light hazy yellow with a quickly dissipating white head and no lacing. Nose of light Belgian yeast, some lemon and orange zest, and saltine crackers. Flavors are light with some light coriander flavors mingle with lemon zest and light wheat flavors with an herbal aftertaste. Very light and dry finish with a nice carbonated mouth feel. Improves vastly with warmth.

Not my favorite from this fine brewery, but still good for the style.

Pours hazy honey-like yellow, thin white lacing.
Smell of lemon peel, lots of herbs, a floral note too, clove, some banana and yellow apple, touch of wheat.
Taste follows the nose, some extra crisp lemon, clearer wheaty bread, otherwise a nice mix of herbs and spices (coriander, clove, faint lemongrass, faint juniper berries), floral notes and a tiny bit of grassy hops. Finishes with dry wheat, low bitterness, but retains most of the spices.
Light body and medium carbonation.
Run-of-the-mill wit, nice, but doesn't really impress with anything.

Poured from a corked & caged 750 mL bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. Stamped best by 11/09/12. Oops. I just stumbled across this one, forlorn and forgotten, mixed up with some random wines in my cellar...

A: Hazy, pale golden yellow. 1 finger of white head with ok retention. Minimal lacing.

S: Belgian yeast. Biscuit. Coriander. Floral/herbal notes that are unique for the style. Peach.

T: Tart with light spice initially. A herbal/floral quality emerges and leads into a dry finish. A bit astringent on the end with some lingering citric/lemon tang. Interesting flavor profile for a wit.

M: Moderate carbonation with a light body. Borders dangerously close to watery, but does go down easily.

O: This is probably past its prime - my bad. Probably not a totally fair assessment, so I'll focus on the positives. This is an interesting wit - reminds me of a Berliner weisse combined with a gruit. The herbal element is cool and I am enjoying the tartness. I'll have to try it a bit fresher.

Prost!

A lot of Palm beers on tap at this place in Gent. This witbier has a typical spiced lemony coriander aroma. Similar to Hoegaarden in regards to the flavor profile. The mouthfeel however is different. The good-a quick crisp finish. The not so good-a thin mouthfeel and a bit too drying. Good drinkability but just average for a wit.
