Appearance: Cloudy golden with a one finger head that thins out quick.

Aroma: Orange zest, light yeasty notes that carries a light dryness in the nose. Bits of lemon peel, coriander.

Taste: Light bodied, a fairly smooth mouthfeel, lemon orange zest, light cinnamon and coriander.

Notes: Not too bad of a Witbier and decently drinkable. Cheers.

A little bit of corn-like taste at the end.

Hazy pale orange, lively streams of carbonation, pure white but fizzy head. I'm floored by the nose, in a good way- succulent juicy tropical fruit like mango, apricot, orange, some white pepper and cardamom, a fair bit of vanilla. It's a little sugary cloying, but I'm nearly drooling for it at the same time. The flavor becomes a bit muddier with some chalky, peppery yeast muffling those juicy notes, but remains tasty. Despite the honey, perhaps because of the yeast flavor, this is pretty dry. Overly carbonated, it almost burns, but if that had been toned down it would be very refreshing.
I'm both disappointed that the nose didn't take its indulgence to the flavor as well; it would have been delicious, but possibly considered a malternative. Belgian in audacity with ingredients and highlighting the yeast, but it didn't quite have the Belgian nuance. This was still a great pleasure.

Hazy peach color with a small, white head. Aroma is floral with coriander and grains. Taste starts with coriander, chamomile, orange and grains. Body is medium, smooth but well carbonated. Really refreshing but also tasty with nice floral and fruity notes.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a semi-clear light orange color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is made up of citrus, spices and coriander. The flavor is packed with orange citrus and malt. A very nice beer.
