Got this one op tap at The Supply House in NYC...Nice cloudy golden hue with a strong proud head. Yeasty smell and bold wheat flavor with citrus notes - outstanding flavor for a witbier.

Pours a hazy, er, cloudy as fits the style. I get a nice mix of coriander and floral notes. Easy drinking, crisp wit. Pleasantly surprised by this one.

Strong spice with this one, going the standard Wit route. Great finish.

June '17 - on tap. Pours pale cloudy golden yellow with heaps of white sticky foam. Wheat based yeasty nose. Hearty wheat flavor with subtle citrus. Bursts forth at the onset. How a witbier should be made, Fantastic,yes.

Note: this is for the 330ml can not the bottle

Look - 4.25 - a little cloudy on the initial pour (good!) with a white/very light yellow body to it. Maybe a slightly thicker head than expected (say 3 fingers on a pour into a 16oz glass). Settles well.
Smell - 4 - Ever so slightly sour smell as typical with a witbier, but very pleasant none the less. Could perhaps do with some citrus hints or another flavor to add some intrigue?
Taste - 4 - Very similar to the smell. A subtle sourness but nothing overpowering, maybe a hint of citrus creeping in that wasn't there in the smell.
Feel - 4.25 - Very smooth on the tongue, and slips down well.

Overall - 4.5 - VERY very drinkable. Goes down well and an empty glass leaves you wanting another one. A good relaxation been in the evening. Would love to see some variations into fruit flavors with this one (an apple version perhaps would work well - although not a true Witbier at that point). Hard to find in this area (found this while looking for a similar witbier from a a San Diego brewery and was recommended this by the craft brew store - well done sir for the recommendation!). Seek this out and enjoy!

Pours a hazy bright yellow with minimal head. Nose is fairly weak consisting of banana and pepper. Taste of classic Belgian yeast, light pepper, banana and bubble gum. All sort of muttled tho. Mouthfeel is a bit soupy and wet, kind of a mess on mouthfeel to be honest. It was nothing special

Pours palle straw yellow with very small white head. Lacing is good and lasts. Very hazy. Nearly opaque. Very mild on the nose with nothing leading the way. Taste is banana and bubblegum. Some say it is innate to the style but I think not. A definite turn off for me. Thin watery on the palate with some crispness. The bubblegum is off the scale. Nice try but a poor example of the style.
