Yellow glass holds a white head that laces

Smells like a wit, little earthy

Taste: like a wit, a good one! A bit under attenuated, but not bad.

Feel, a bit carbed, but nice

Overall: Yum!

Appearance: Hazy golden yellow, like egg-yolk, with a prominent, dense snow-white head, and scattered, Belgian-style lacing.

Aroma: Lots of earthy yeast, a little coriander, some ripe bananas, and some lemon rind.

Taste: Sour and earthy wheat notes open the taste, soon followed by lemon and banana. Later in the taste, moderate herbal hop notes balance the sweetness. Spicy notes abound with coriander prominent and lesser cloves as well. There are notable leafy hops at the close.

Mouth feel: Fairly full, with somewhat zesty carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: A decent example of the style, although lacking compared to Hoegaarden or Alagash White. Its a pity that we have to taste so many beers before we can judge them adequately. Still, a very nice example for summer, not so much for autumn, when it is offered.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce aluminum can, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

The beer poured a slightly hazy straw yellow with a significant white head that left very little lacing. The aroma held the typical spices and fruity Belgian yeast esters that are typical of the style. The taste followed suit with the coriander and citrus notes you would expect, and they faded to a slightly bitter wheaty finish. I was really enjoying the spicy fruity start to this brew and found this witbier to be light and satisfying. The light carbonation danced on my tongue to keep me coming back for more of this refreshing brew. Definitely an ample antidote to the heat of summer.
