I poured this into a goblet and noticed the thick head that formed and the golden straw color of the ale. On the nose this beer is very fruity/citrus-like in aroma which is to be expected of a beer of this style, but it had a crispness to it that was most appealing. On the first taste it was again what one would expect from a witbier..citrusy..especially to me a tangrine-like essence that was most refreshing. This beer is smooth, velvety smooth likely due to the 5% ABV, but I think also to the excellence of the brewing...just very well crafted. The best of the Unibroue range....perhaps not, but it is still an excellent brew that anyone would enjoy on a warm late spring day. As a session beer this would be one of my top choices..easy drinking, full of flavor, and high enough of an abv to have character but not so high as to be obnoxious after a few glasses.

A-Straw colored, like most Belgians with nothing special

S-Smell was fruity and very enticing, easy on the nose.

T-Taste was fruity as well with a hint of orange and apples, maybe some lemon in there.

MF- Probably the best part of the beer was the smoothness. A very easy drinking beer that i could see myself drinking perhaps at the beach.

O- It's a great beer, but not the best by unibroue.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter glass.

Look – light golden color, slightly hazy, with about half a finger’s worth of foam that dissipates quickly.

Smell – somewhat subdued aroma, but habiting a somewhat hefe-like or citrus-like quality.

Taste – much like the taste, there’s a bit of a citrus taste that permeates through most of the tasting, the majority of which is pretty mild. Still very much of a hefe-like quality.

Mouthfeel – pretty well balanced, seemingly lie in the middle between watery and creamy.

Overall – not a terribly intriguing beer to taste, but good-tasting still, and not dull either.
