look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a hazy yellow with a finger of white head that fades into a thin layer with little lacing.

S: Spices up front with some peppery notes followed by slightly musty and sweet bread aromas. The finish has a slight tartness to it as well.

T: Light spices notes at first followed by a surprisingly tart fruit flavor with some funky and barnyard aspects to it. The finish is dry and lightly bready.

M: Light body with highish carbonation, this beer is nice and dry, making it really drinkable.

O: A pretty witbier, overall, that's also very unique. It's almost more like a saison or some Belgian pale ales than a witbier. Still, it's enjoyable.
