look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

750ml bottle into nonic pint. bottled on january 21, 2014. consumed on july 25, 2014

a: fully cloudy pale yellow. three fingers of frothy, bubbly, web-like head

s: a nice banana scent up front, then oak, spices, pineapple, lemon, and sour funk

t: tart lemon, wheaty malt, orange, funk, pineapple, oak, coriander, and banana, in that order. has a really dry finish with lingering oak, malt, and slight funk flavours

m: really harsh carbonation right when it hits the tongue, could be toned down a bit. light-bodied

o: a tasty and complex beer with lots of interesting flavours. finishes a bit too dry and i'm not a fan of the bubbly mouthfeel, but other than that, great stuff

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.
