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

Looks beautiful, smells like a classic witbier, nice smooth notes of grain and bread. Lacking the spicy esters from my favorite wits like Allagash, Saint Bernardus, or Blanche de Chambly, but the coriander is present and pleasant, especially on the finish, lending to the sweetness. No trace or hint of the alcohol, so the added kick of the 6.6% abv is an all-stealth payload.
