Poured on tap at Pizza Paradiso Dupont DC into a tulip glass.

White head which is very creamy, with a super pale lemon cloudy body. Very opaque but not totally.

First whiff is cardomom for me and sweetness follwed by some yeast. It smells like a classic witbier, muted lemon. Slightly grassy but even a hint of veggie sense, not picking up the coriander that it claims to have.

Taste is a nice bread lingering finish, and a yeasty pleasant body. Chewy wheaty like malt and grain with a good simple light body.

Overall hits the spot and a good definition of a simple witbier.

A: Pours a lightly hazy straw yellow in color with some moderate visible carbonation and some visible yeast particulates. The beer has a half finger tall white head that reduces to a thin layer over the majority of the surface of the beer and a thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Some light amount of lacing is observed.

S: Extremely light in aroma with just the most subtle hints of citrus peel (maybe orange or lemon).

T: Very light flavored but not watery or devoid of flavor. There is a nice flavor of wheat with some light hints of spice (maybe cardamom) and citrus/lemon/orange peel. I can definitely detect the presence of the yeast.

M: Light bodied with heavy amounts of carbonation. Almost prickly on the tongue due to the heavy carbonation.

O: Refreshing and very easy to drink, not as much a presence of spice as I would have expected and hoped for... Definitely this is a sessionable beer and the price could not be beat (as I got it in a special deal for $2.99 for the 750ml bottle).

A: The beer is slightly hazy straw yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that died down but consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: There are light to moderate aromas of orange peel in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of orange peel with notes of wheat. No spices are detectable.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has some refreshing properties. It’s a nice choice if you are looking for a citrusy witbier without the spices.

I had this beer on-tap in a tulip at EuroPub in Seattle.

Appearance: lightly cloudy medium golden hue with a finger of white foam. Quite attractive.

Smell: super citrusy with a lime and lemon character. The coriander appears as well. A very fruity and interesting witbier.

Taste: super fruity with a ton of coriander character, along with citrus atop a wheaty malt base. Odd but pretty good.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a good carbonation and a darn good creaminess.

Overall: one of the fruitiest witbiers I've had. It's like the margarita of beers. Could be super refreshing under the right circumstances.

From cellared bottle. As I was unable to decipher the use by date, I have to assunme this was beyond deciphering. THat being said, there was substantial flavor within. Body was failing, but after the struggle to de-cork, that was pretty much a given. Light head (sans lacing) bespoke a life that was exaspirating, but viable to the faithful.

The cork was a challange, that breathed life to the possibility of legend within, but alas, time is indeed the master of all.

I was able share my enjoyment with afficianatodes, from afar, who shared & expounded on my observations, as many a such encounters do incur.

All in all I appreciate the experience & would recommend any that happen upon same, to dive in up to your collarbone & live life to the fullest.

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a light straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a light ester and lemon zest.

The taste consisted of a light grainy malt with soft citrus zest.

The mouthfeel was thin for the style.

Overall a decent wit. Nothing to write home about.
