A: Unfiltered, pale straw color, with some beautiful stark white head.

S: Tart, spicy pears, zesty, light, crisp and refreshing

T: Much smoother than I was expecting. Very light tart quality, but the light sweet, and smoothe malt character comes in and balances everything and leaves the mouth deliciously wet. Notes of lemons, not super strong on the spice end.

M: Super light, clean

O: Slight tart quality, smoothe body, light, zesty, refreshing

Incredible amount of head that leaves white lacing all around HefeWeizen glass. Slightly cloudy but gets very cloudy after the final pour. Lots of yeast in bottle. Smell is alot on the sour side. Taste tart and sour up front with mellow wheat aftertaste. Nice hints if coriander and lemon. Not too sour, just right. Enjoyable Farmhouse style Wit beer wish we can get this in Florida it would sell real well here. 4.50

A - Pours an almost clear golden yellow with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of wheat, grains, coriander, lemon zest, citrus hop, Belgian yeast, and some funk.

T - Starts off with some wheat, lemon zest, citrus hop, and coriander. Through the middle, some Belgian yeast and funk comes through with a bit of bready grains and some more spice and pepper. The finish is a mix of Belgian yeast, funk, spices, lemon zest, and coriander.

M - Medium-minus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and lightly funky finish.

D - Very drinkable. Really nicely balanced Witbier with some good complexity. Great yeast flavor and funk.

Poured into a snifter. Label says Best Enjoyed by 06/2013.

A- Pours a hazy straw color with a 1/2 inch white head that retains decently before popping away to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and an abundance of surface foam. Resilient sheet of lacing slowly slides down the glass.

S- Crisp and Bretty with some sour undertones. Wheat in the backdrop provides a nice template for the overall profile. Mildly funky.

T- The wild yeast plays off the palate gently with a slightly acidic flavor and feel. Somewhat tart as the wheat brings everything together. Possibly some spice thrown in the mix as well. Notes of lemon, apple, pear and white grape.

M- Very crisp with the lightest bit of pucker. Light body and medium-high carbonation.

O- Very tasty spontaneously fermented take on the style. Thank you SatlyMalty for my first Logsdon as it is a good one.

Pours clear straw yellow first; gentle swirling of the bottle and now we have clouds.

Hoppy spicy Wit here on the nose. Coriander very inviting.

Coriander and other spices, something tangy in there. Especially in the finish; resembles lemon that is not too bitter; kinda like those containers at the grocery that resemble a lemon.

What hoppiness I get compliments the spices rather than detracts. Another thing that I notice is a perceived by me hint of a honey presence.

Medium body with prickly carbonation.

This is really good.

Poured a gorgeous cloudy, translucent golden yellow body with three fingers of fluffy, thick white head. A very true to form witbier and quite nice looking. Scents of orange zest and orange flesh, grainy, tangy wheat malt, fruity esters with an aroma of apricot juice, spicy yeast phenols, light notes of white pepper and a perfume-like coriander spiciness providing a true to style balanced spiciness. Overall impression is of a sweet, very fruity, citrus heavy witbier aroma profile with spiciness not being overwhelming, but contributing depth, complexity and balance. Very pleasant and mostly true to style. Flavor begins lightly tart with notes of orange zest and tart orange flesh, pleasantly and softly sweet malt and a light hint of coriander and white pepper. Sourness is of a lightly lactic-like sort, optional to the style yet quite pleasant. Middle is slightly tarter and drier, continuing the lactic-like sourness along with tart orange zest and flesh, a medium-light spiciness with notes of coriander, white pepper, a light wheat malt tartness and graininess. Light sweetness is still present and balances the tartness. Finish is lightly dry with light lactic sourness still present, as well as tart orange zest and flesh, grainy malt, light coriander and white pepper and softly sweet malt keeping it from being too dry. Aftertaste is tangy orange zest, white pepper, coriander and spicy yeast with a touch of grainy wheat malt. Overall impression of flavor is of a tart, orange zest and flesh forward flavor profile with a nice lactic character that is balanced by the softly sweet and grainy malt and the spiciness of coriander and yeast phenols. It is slightly drier than many example as a result, but still maintains a pleasant sweetness at a light level. A very nice witbier that does more than stick to the now standard flavor profile, yet still remains true to the spirit of the style. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with high, softly prickly carbonation and a tart, drying, lightly acidic, yet creamy feel. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a wonderfully refreshing witbier that is very true to form and quite nice. Overall this is an excellent witbier. It has a lovely aroma that is very true to style and a flavor that diverges from style somewhat, but is pleasant and quite well done and still stays true to the spirit of the style. Mouthfeel is very true to form and aids the refreshing combination of flavors. Easily my favorite witbier and well worth trying.
