Drinking in the southern tip of Lido Beach, Sarasota. Great overall day sipper, especially on beach setting. Smells of orange, spice, coriander. Feel is silky and taste of orange peel and spices. Good libations.

From a can into a pint glass, this one is a hazy yellow color with a very thin cap of white foam which fades quickly. Nose of wheat and lemon zest. Mouth is bready with notes of coriander and lemon/citrus. Mouth is nicely crisp and quenching. Overall, not a bad Belgian-style ale, but nothing outstanding. Would try again.

Pours a mild whitish-gold hue with a huge head into my glass. Canned 1/18/19. Sweet coriander and orange peel in nose. Refreshing. Crisp, pillowy malt with a pronounced dose of orange peel toward the back. Finishes clean at back of throat. I've never been to Florida but I would bet this would make a refreshing lawnmower beer.

From the 12 fl. oz. can dated 01/28/2019. Sampled on February 11, 2019.

It has the classic witbier pour with an unfiltered cloudy looking pale yellow and a soft, lacing leaving white head.

The aroma brings out an immediate sensation of Belgian crackery malts, coriander, orange peel, and a citrus zing. Highly inviting.

Light, effervescent mouthfeel.

Sweet and grainy at first with an eruption of coriander spice and clean, blossom coated finish. Just what I like in the style.

Canned on 12/27/18. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy straw color; chunky eggshell white head that falls leaving great retention and sticky lacing. The aromas have a nice blend of citrus, wheat, malts and coriander. The flavors basically follow the nose. Some lemon and orange along with some more coriander. Lots of fresh bread and crackers. Some grains. Wheat and malts do their thing. Finishes clean. Alcohol goes completely unnoticed. Mouthfeel is light with moderate to active carbonation. It's not thin. It's fluffy, slightly creamy, sharp, smooth and easy to drink.

This is a nice witbier. It's not flashy, but it's not supposed to be. It's more or less what you would expect from the style. It's refreshing and enjoyable stuff. I like it.

Poured to a BrewDog snifter.

A: Body is bright yellow and cloudy as a witbier should be. Head is minimal and white.
S: Aroma is very strong of coriander and clove. Nothing much going on here but it's a easy-going fresh beer.
T: Taste starts off with a huge coriander flavour that turns a kinda citric touch that's unknown to me - maybe it's the curacao peel, never tried a curacao before - and then moves on the half bitter half sour finishing touch of a witbier. It's very competent.
M: Body is light as it should be. Carbonation is nominal. Sweetness is low. Bitterness is medium low.
O: Very easy-drinking summer beer.
