Not a fan of NA brewed Belgian styles, but DAMN! That's a fantastic witbier. The typical flavours of orange, banana, sweet bread and coriander but with a slight lemon tartness. Creamy mouthfeel but still effervescent. Awesome!

Bottle: Poured a hazy blonde color ale with a nice large foamy head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of coriander and wheat malt are pretty dominant. Taste is also heavy on the coriander notes with some great wheat malt notes and light residual sugar notes. Body is pretty full with good carbonation. Pretty enjoyable with nice dose of coriander but carbonation could be slightly more pronounced.
