3.51/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Turbid straw-yellow with a rich cap of bleachy white head that rose to about two fingers' height. Lacing is a pretty sight.

Orange slice citrus with some lemon, a bit of coriander, clove, and pepper. Standardized Belgian witbier yeast and zestiness. Wheat malts have a good presence, too. Smells sweet and musty.

Very much spiced, with a lot of coriander and notes of cardamom. There's distinct bitter orange flesh and peel and a chalky yeast that works to get drying. Getting notes of hibiscus and chamomile tea in here, also. A wildly floral take on a Belgian staple.

Easy to drink. Wet-bodied with subtle carbonation creeping in and back out. Pretty simple, but okay.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a very hazy golden color with a one finger head of white foam. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a light level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite heavy of a sour lemon smell mixed with a good amount of a biscuit aroma. A bit of wheat bread and some coriander as well as a little bit of orange and a light grassy smell are there as well.

Taste – The taste begins with a rather dry flavor, with just a bit of a cracker flavor and a bit of yeast and coriander spice. As the flavor advances a very light orange and lemon flavor develop on the tongue bringing just a hint of sweetness and sourness to the profile. Along the same time, a bit of graininess and some light grassy and moderately hay-like flavors develop on the tongue as well. The yeasty flavors grow stronger as the taste moves to the end, leaving a rather bland and dry flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is average as well. With little flavor, an even higher carbonation and thinner body may have been more appropriate for the brew.

Overall – Not a brew I would go to again. For the most part it was very low on the flavor profile with the flavors not even really being that good. While I understand that at 4.7 % abv. that I will not get a flavor powerhouse, this one is actually less flavorful and more offensive then most low cal. brews.
