look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Stubby Belgian brown bottle.

Appearance: Impressive bright white head holds a finger of tight foam on a hazy apricot colored glass that shows tiny carbonation trails when back lit.

Smell: Orange peel and coriander, classic wit elements on a slightly vegetal base. Belgian yeast esters.

Taste: Light body lets a little ribbon of vodka like alcohol through. Pretty well balanced, very light malt with a hop leaf waived over it. Lets the spices play their role in the limelight, and they are at a good level, full but not powerful. Yeast character shows as well.

Mouthfeel: Painful carbonation, prickly and sharp. Has a champagne feel in that the sips go to foam. Medium light body once I degass the glass with a lot of evil genius swirling.

Overall: A nice wit! The carbonation issue I had with the Hippo is here as well, which has me hoping for a bottling issue more than an infection issue. This is a little light, borderline watery, but some good flavor and no serious flaws.
I'd drink this again; worth a try!

11.1 oz Batch 001 Bottle #02567 into a tulip

A: Pours a hazy dark yellow with a nice white head that fades to a ring and leaves tiny spots of lacing.

S: The nose is incredibly good with large doses of lemon, orange, and other citrus aromas along with vanilla and belgian yeast esters as well.

T: The taste is nice as well starting with sweet esters followed by citrus and wheat flavors as well.

M: The feel is light and a touch drying on the finish.

O: This is one of the better Witbiers I've had to date and something I'm glad I can get locally. This will definitely make the hotter months of the summer somewhat tolerable.

11.1 oz bottle poured into an Adelbert's snifter. Batch 001, bottle number 118. Bottled 3-2-12.

The beer pours a hazy straw color with a large, fluffy white head. The aroma has quite a bit of coriander and wheat in it, with a little bit of orange peel thrown in. Smells about like I expected it to. The flavor is fairly heavy on the wheat, with a little bit of lemon and orange. There is also some lightly toasted malt and a little coriander. Thin to medium mouthfeel and a soft, medium carbonation. Easy to drink and quite enjoyable.
