Poured from the bottle into a Hoegaarden tumbler.

Interesting body appearance. Slightly clear orange to yellow, with some plentiful amounts of linear carbonation and a bit hazy. Head is classic foamy small white and suds up to two possibly three fingers tall. Keeps a consistent thin puck while settling.

Good solid aromas of really green coriander on this, garden fresh and lots of herbality. Mineral slight sensations and a mild sweetness. Not much else going on, hardly any sense of thick wheat chewy character or orange either, but still impressed by this coriander bomb.

Palate comes out rather standard but a little ordinary. Minimal amounts of Belgian sweetness or character. A very flour grain powdery sense which really does not give and boost to the mouthfeel. Almost chalky finish with a drying paste like quality. Slight juiced lemon and orange fruit flavors a bit with a simple quality.

A pretty straightforward witibier with no bells or whistles. Surprised how much of a coriander buzz I got off of it though.

DATE TASTED: August 21, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Rare Vos wit... OCCASION: saying goodbye to summer camp--with The Battle of the Five Armies... APPEARANCE: slightly hazy, suggesting an unfiltered creation... light, golden yellow body with small, copious bubbles... reasonably thick white head that shows surprising retention... AROMA: strong wafts of orange peel and lemon, with banana and biscuit rounding out the profile; bubblegum and yeasts develop a predictable yet appreciable draw ... PALATE: rather flat, malty and watery--easily refreshing but also lacking in substance and texture... little aftertaste, save a bit of beefiness... TASTE: some spiciness early, with bubblegum and orange peel providing the majority of the profile; the coriander is present, but light; the flavor is soft, watery and, at best, of the style... OVERALL: a good accompaniment for a arm, humid night such as this; not outstanding by any stretch, this still fulfills its promise of refreshment...not as engaging, flavorful or nuanced as other summer offerings....
