12 oz can was poured into a pilsner glass.

Appearance: A two finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy pale yellow color with some clarity and vision of tiny bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Coriander, herbal, citrus, Belgian yeast, vanilla, wheaty, and apple.

Taste: Nice and fluffy flavors. Very traditional witbier taste and very enjoyable.

Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, refreshing, medium carbonation, and a little chewy.

Overall: Pretty nice take on the witbier style. In a can too. I'll revisit this one again in the future.

Light orange color. Cloudy with minimal lacing and head retention. Smell consists of spice (I can't decipher--maybe clove) and banana. Taste is rather spicy with more banana and lemon, and the bubbly mouthfeel makes this even more biting. Nice creamy texture. Overall a good but not great beer that is pretty affordable.

Pours a large fizzy fluffy 2+ finger head that fades semi slowly, big messy lacing, hazy sediment laden all over.

Nose nice creamy wheat, raw gristy malt, little grainy toasty, with a juicy malt, into fruity mild citrus, little yeasty note, with peppery phenols, mild spices, fruity esters, yeast sludge.

Taste has a mild sweet creamy wheat, toasty gristy malt with raw wheat. Then esters, fruity, little banana, faint spices, light phenols, yeasty again as well, raw earthy yeast notes. Little bitterness, drier finish, bit more creamy wheat and lingering bitter herbal grassy hops.

Mouth med to lighter bod, nice carb.
