16oz pint at the Glass Half Full Tap Room in Littleton, Colorado, post-Beer Diaries premiere - thanks Drew!

This beer appears a mildly cloudy pale golden yellow hue, with one finger of thinly foamy, yet tightly bubbly off-white head, which leaves some sparsely strewn islet lace around the glass as things slowly abate.

It smells of semi-sweet, bakery-adjacent pale malt, restrained coriander, white pepper, orange citrus rind, and a subtle leafy hoppiness. The taste is more pleasantly sweet bready pale malt, coriander, multicoloured ground pepper, a touch of earthy yeast, and laid back leafy, weedy hops.

The carbonation is a tad peppy throughout, the body medium-light in weight, and weirdly, deftly smooth, with an understated creaminess. It finishes off-dry, the pale malt, yeast, and zingy spice holding fast.

A decidedly pleasant witbier, bolstered by a certain American sensibility - everything is in the proper Belgian order, but propped up somehow. Totally worthy of another, or further session exploration.
