From BeerAdvocate Magazine #76 (May 2013):

A gem in hiding. Having had numerous Witbiers in our travels, this one had a leg up on most with its sheer balance alone. Nails all of the characteristics you look for in this style and a bit bigger than usual at 6% ABV, but still drinkable nonetheless.

STYLE: Witbier
ABV: 6.0%
AVAILABILITY: Year-round

LOOK: Hazy straw, lots of lace

SMELL: Orange peel, pithy, yeasty, bready, mildly spicy, coriander

TASTE: Incredibly smooth, slightly creamy, very bready, spicy, hint of alcohol, orange peel, zest, coriander, nutty, ripe plums, semidry finish

Not one of my favorite styles because it seems to easy to go overboard on the spice mix.
And that's the case here. Way too much corrinder, it gives the beer a celery taste and smell.
