Poured into a standard pint glass. The beer is a hazy straw yellow color. A white head dissipates to a fog quickly. Random lacing clings to the glass. The beer smells overwhelmingly spicy. The beer tastes floral and spicy. Banana, coriander, and a biscuit note. The mouthfeel is fairly light bodied.

Overall, this is a tasty brew, but it certainly is strong in the spice department.

A: Slightly hazy yellow color with very minimal head that dissipates to a thin veil all around the edges.

S: Not very much going on here. Some spices typical of a Belgian Witbier, some coriander and peppery notes as well as the yeastyness. Would be more enjoyable if they were more noticeable.

T: Very nice blend of grassy wheat and maltyness. Spice note is clearly defined with coriander and peppery flavor of candied ginger. Get some real sweetness at the end, like a mixture of banana or pear. Really enjoyable, the taste made up for the lack of nose and head.

M: Average carbonation works well with the spiceyness. After taste lingers and the ABV is barely noticeable.

O: Not a bad witbier at all. Was slightly disappointed with the lack of aromas but the taste made up for it in spades.

served from a bottle into a snifter style glass

appearance - 4.5/5 - Pours a semi-dark cloudy straw color with a 1/2 finger head. Tiny bubbles can be seen streaming up the edge of the glass.

smell - 5/5 - Strong sweet, citrusy aroma with some spices in the nose too.

taste - 5/5 - Instantly tastes like orange and coriander. Not too much and not too little and followed by a crisp zest.

mouthfeel - 5/5 - Highly carbonated and refreshing.

overall - 5/5 - A very tasty Belgian style beer that is refreshing without overt "Belgian flavor".

Pretty solid Belgian White - more white than Beligian. Pours a yellowish with a thin white had that dissipates quickly. Brew retains some carb bubbling however. Smell is diominated by Belgian spices - coriander and some ginger. Tastes matches the nose with a well balanced wheat backbone. Solid brew. Nothing special, easy to drink.
