Part 1 of the Magic Hat Night of the Living Dead fall sampler. Poured into a pint glass.
A- Very pale yellow and fairly clear. Lots of foamy white head that dissipates pretty quickly but hangs onto the glass decently enough.
S- Pretty fragrant stuff. Loves of spicy yeast notes, with some banana and some tart green apple. An interesting twist on the standard clove and banana witbier smell.
T- Tastes like a witbier, with the clove, coriander spiciness up front. A little banana as well, with juicy apple in the finish. Again, just a little twist, but nicely done.
M/D- Nice, chewy mouthfeel for a wit, with sufficient carbonation. Very drinkable as well.
Magic Hat doesn't get much love around these parts, but this one is pretty good. I like a little fruit in my witbier (I like SA Blackberry Wit too), and this one doesn't bash you over the head with it. Well done.

Purchased as part of the Night of the Living Dead MH sampler case last year; 2010.
Poured into a pint glass a straw yellow color.
Aroma was a smoky fruity smell, hard to pin down the actual smell.
Tasted of smoke and yeast upfront, surprised that the apple taste was not more pronounced.
After the first few sips, I was becoming disappointed with the overall taste, which to me was not pleasing to me. I still had 5 more to go through at this point, and these weren't much better.
Overall I did not like it very much, but then again Witbier's in general aren't my favorite.
