(12 oz bottle, no bottle code or dating, purchased cold... poured into an Innis & Gunn fluted goblet)

L: curiously very-clear, yellow-amber liquid; tall, rather loose crackly-sudsy head... does have a mild haze... initial head prevented full pour, but last 1-2 oz carries a big messy load of speckled, swirly sediment

S: big whiff of what seems like lightly-toasted coriander seed; floral, grassy; wheat malt seems to poke through a good bit as well... coriander overtone dominant even after sediment added; lemon peel maybe next most apparent

T: lots spicy, pungent coriander up front, big malty middle, spicy/oily citrus peel looming large in the aftertaste - bold flavors all around... subsequent sips reveal the underlying malt and yeast to be merely a carrying mechanism for the 3-D coriander swarm - it's like you're chewing on fresh seeds, its definition is brilliant

F: light-bodied, but packed with dense fluff... blanket soft and rather dry, with the spice and alcohol combining to ignite some enlivening warmth at the back of the jaw... spice tickles the backs of the nostrils... could use a lil more bounce to its body

O: haven't had this in awhile, initially trying it more than a decade ago, but it feels like its taste hasn't changed, which is great... do NOT like the new label, however, and it's a wonder I was able to quickly identify the beer while scanning the fridges at the bottle shop - rebranding gone wrong

Served at Crooked Ladder Brewery, recently acquired by Southampton Brewery, into a conical pint glass.
A: Pours a hazy, more straw than golden color. Minimal head and little Belgian lacing.
S: Bready with citrus, banana, and spice notes.
T: Bread to toast, lemon to orange citrus, and coriander notes evident.
M: Light to medium bodied with solid effervescence.
O: Really a very enjoyable Witbier, by far the best thing I have had from Southampton.

The appearance had a hazy yellow colored body with a thin one fingered white foamy head that died within about a minute. The smell had an almost perfect blessing of coriander spices to a lemon citrus blend that adds a spectacular sweetness and just enough yeastiness to assist in a wonderful spectacular aroma. The taste was sweet to spicy with the citruses of lemon and orange to exemplify a more than adequate flavoring for an American brewer for a witbier. The aftertaste is slightly spicy and citrusy. The finish is not as dry as expected but still felt dry and quick as I did expect. The palate is about a light to medium, and fairly sessionable. Carbonation is just right for a Witbier and its good to me as well. Overall, really good witbier, pretty close in style and also a personal favorite by this brewery.

Nice light golden and slightly hazy look from this beer with a quickly receeding white head. Scent is of a yeasty wit, I can't really pull much more out of it than that...taste is somewhat better than the scent. I'm getting wit yeast with a coriander banana and slight pepper taste. I'm missing the orange and lemon peel advertised on the bottle. Lower carbonation and a medium mouthfeel round out this beer. Maybe not totally my style but I'm not as thrilled about this beer as some others. FYI the bottom of my pour was full of thick ditrius
