3.53/5 rDev -9.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 750ML bottle (bottled 10/2010) into a heifeweizen glass.
Appearance: Hazy and ultra pale-to dandelion. Highly carbonated. As the beer sat the color got darker, finally settling on a light golden color. Towering lacy white head that retained very well. When the bottle was uncapped and a full glass poured, the remaining head inside still reached the top of the bottle.
Smell: Dry and cidery, with some sour citrus and grain. Coriander and spices must be hidden under there somewhere.
Taste: Again, tart-to-sour and dry, with some earthy spice underneath. Wish I could taste more of the spice and mellow grain. Crisp, but still tart, aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: For such a highly carbonated beer, it has a nice body and avoids feeling too thin and watery.
Overall: A well-made beer, but a bit too dry and tart for my taste. I didn't get the spiciness that I was really hoping for, as this beer seemed to veer more towards a saison taste than a nice mellow wit. That, combined with the fairly steep price tag (still $9.99 even on sale), means I won't be looking to buy it again anytime soon.

This pours a cloudy orange yellow with a 1 finger head of foam that shrinks quickly. Lacing, yep.
Coriander, clove, banana, some bubblegum...pretty smelly, err aromatic. Hey is that some Brett in there?
It tastes like someone squeezed a fresh orange into my glass of this beer and then threw a blanket in it. A horse type blanket. The coriander and clove are there but that orange and Brett flavour is killing it. In a good way. I could drink a couple back to back.
The body seems to be medium at times but mostly light. Plenty of carbo.
A nice tasty Wit, for sure.
