Hey everyone.

This wit pours quite possibly the most beautiful hazy glow I've seen in recent memory. Pear and pineapple shades with a giant head, leaving skirted lace in forms of what can only be described as ancient language. Only thing I'd like to see different is some sediment, otherwise it'd be a five.

Smells like a Wit! Has orange candy-ish aromas, with clove and coriander, dusty wheat, and hay barn. It's a little musky, but that's the character of Witbiers. Nothing off here at all.

Flavors, well they're within Witbier territory but a little underwhelming. Quite a bit of ash underneath everything else - which happens to consist of some durham wheat, stiff corianders, rosemary, and a little banana. It keeps punching me in the mouth with harsh and unrelenting metallic ash tones. If i could change one thing I'd get rid of that completely.

Feel is slim and only marginally creamy, with a slight chalkiness and a mild carbonation.

Overall, this Witbier puts on a good show but when it's time to take her to bed, it goes south. I would have liked to pick up another one from my trip to test at a later date, but alas I only got one. I'm not too wrecked over it.

Had at Frontera at OHare airport. Pretty standard wit. Nice golden color with a head that dissipated rather quickly. I thought this had a nice spice to it though unlike other wits. Very good beer, although not surprised from this brewery.
