Light golden slightly opaque look with a white head. Yeasty Belgian scent with some sweetness to the nose. Smooth, pretty well carbonated and crisp with a familiar banana style wit flavor that really pops and a bready wheat finish. Overall, this is a pretty good brew.

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!
