330ml bottle with best before date of march 2014.

A- pours a yellowish brown hazy, with a thick soapy white head about 2cm thick. The head keeps on and on.

S- sweet candi sugar, strong herbal whiff with some wheat in there. Faint mango aroma too.

T- yeasty,earthy taste with nice orange and lemon zest which isn't too strong. Wheat backdrop typical of a wit beer, but I can't really pick up the advertised coriander. Nice hoppy bitterness is noticeable throughout.

M- light to medium body, soapy texture, sharp finish and high carbonation.

O- good solid representation of the style. More bitter and less watery than a hoegaarden, this is worth a go. But drink it in summer, not in winter like me.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a glass tumbler. Moderately aggressive hand. Bottled on 02/21/2014.

A: Hazy, yellow-orange hued body with 3+ fingers of sudsy, slightly rocky white head. Good retention. Moderate lacing.

S: Faintly musty yeast with notes of citrus zest, orange, lemon. Coriander. Lighter honey, floral hops.

T: Fruit and spice up front via the yeast. A hop bitterness mounts quickly and yields a fairly dry, pretty clean finish. Citrus zest bitterness lingers on the palate. Minimal alcohol.

M: Moderate carbonation with a moderate body. There is a mild effervescent kick with a slight prickliness.

O: Not a bad wit. A good amount of citrus is dialed in without excessive sweetness. Perhaps a bit over-hopped and somewhat lacking in depth, but certainly a refreshing, warm weather quaff.
