The beer comes in a slightly hazy rich gold color. Beautiful beer with tiny bubbles rising up in it.

The aroma has some orange, lemon citrus, a bit of spice, and Belgian yeasty breadiness.

The flavor does not follow as much on the citrus. There’s a little bit, a bit of pepper in the back, a light biscuity breadiness, and then a good amount of drying bitterness.

The beer is a bit watery and reminds me of a blonde ale instead of a Belgian witbier.

This is a good summer option, much like Victory Summerlove. The bittering on the end is very refreshing for this summer beer. It’s very drinkable and has a reasonable amount of flavor. I really do enjoy this beer on a hot hot day.

I decided to try this one, even been thrown off by the low score. What a great surprise. This is a solid wit, it is definitely on my top 5. The taste is very balanced with not too overpowering combination of orange and coriander, goes smooth and smells great. Very easy drinking. I will be looking for more. Definitely a hidden gem in this style.
