Appearance: Clean golden with a thick white head and webby lace. Attractive!

Aroma: Subtle maltiness, sweet alongside coriander spiciness coming around the edges. Nice.

Taste: Smooth and balanced, with a wonderful mix of spice, malts, and some fruitiness in the orange peel. The oats add an extraordinary smoothness here that mainstream witbiers could learn a lot from. Exquisite and top-shelf here. A damned great witbier!

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Brownwood, FL. The appearance is a slightly cloudy straw color with a large white head. The aroma is mild wheat and some spice. The taste is wheat driven.
