Poured into a half pint glass: color is straw gold, head is off white with fine bubbles that dissipate quickly to a ring on the sides of the glass.

Smell is blend of tart and floral, which leads a more citrusy like aroma. Coriander is light, lavender is noticeable, hint of wheat/biscuit.

Taste follows aroma with tart flavor, floral notes, mild toast/biscuit malt...
Mouthfeel has strong interplay with flavor as the tartness is sharp and overtakes the beer - I think of wits as wheaty with light spice, this iteration falls a bit sharp and tart with more aromatic, floral spice.

Overall an interesting beer but it just seems off as wit in style.

Absolutely disgusting. Bought a loose can from my local distributor and the cashier couldn't give me any info about it. The can doesn't give you anything either so i went into this blind. I did google it before i opened it but i never could have guessed it would be so awful. Way too many shitty flavors goin on for me. Im an ale and lager guy so this was way outta my comfort zone. Blech.
