much darker than any other belgian wit i have seen before. it is a toasted golden hue with a decent head and lacing at first that recedes to a thing layer of bubblers.
at first i didn't get much of a scent from the beer but after sticking my nose deeper in the glass i'm starting to pick up a light graininess with some citrus fruit and then the coriander comes in along with some other herbal notes.
taste hits the wit syle pretty straight forward except for a little darker flavor than the typical light and bright wits, which i think comes along with the darker color of the beer.
mouthfeel is semi-thick with the carbonation being a little more prickly than i would prefer.
overall a tasty american style wit. i appreciate that they tried something a little different with the darker color and flavor of the beer while still sticking closely to the style otherwise.
would drink again, but i would reach for a belgian wit first most likely.

Dark gold. It's a bit hazy at the beginning as the yeast has settled. At the end of the bottle, it gets cloudier. Beautiful aroma. Ripe bananas, bubblegum, orange and coriander. Slight phenols. Flowery. The wheat provides a firm background to the soft fruitiness of the esters and spicing of the orange peel and coriander, although the esters almost overpower the spice. Really seems more like a spiced hefeweizen than a witbier, but it's tasty.
