Canned on 4/6/2018. Poured from 12 oz. can into pint glass. It pours a hazy, golden-straw color with an almost non-existent head. The nose features wheat cracker, clove, coriander, banana, and lemon. The taste includes wheat cracker, banana and Belgian spicing. The flavors are rather subdued. The feel is thin and effervescent and super easy to drink at 4.5% ABV. While admittedly this isn't fresh, it's not a distinguished Witbier. Its best attribute is its smell.

I love this: ever so slightly effervescent with hints of orange complementing a subtle, but lingering body of soft wheat

At the time of writing I'm a relatively young beer drinker. Lovely taste and relatively low expense make it a recommendation for those new to the game

A pleasant wit that I would like to try again.... when it was warmer. Had on a dreary, foggy day in the 4th week of September. And didn't have it with food, which is how I prefer drinking a wit and its primary test.
But this should be said, it passes the secondary test: A nice Belgian yeast clearly is at work here; giving both aromas and tastes we associate with the style. I found it a bit thin; but that is excusable if it makes the food taste better (back to the primary test.)
