750ml bottle shared with fisherman34 and procured for me by grub. Poured into a Sierra Nevada pint glass.

Pleasing to the eye, pours with vicious carbonation and a massive head that just won't quit. Sticky lacing, light witbier colour but less hazey than I expected. Aromas of coriander, and lots of it. A little farmhouse funk, citrus zest, and a meaty marjoram aroma (meatballs!).

In the flavour the coriander and marjoram flavours stand out most, followed by a bit of zesty citrus and a lactic sourness. The carbonation, while massive in the glass, isn't obnoxious on the palate and just moves the flavour around. Pretty refreshing with a nice, dry finish. I'd say this is a light and easy drinking wit, flavourful but not obnoxious with some unique tastes in there.

3.86/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.
