I'm not going to leave you hanging about my opinion; this is one great beer. I have never given a review with the ratings that I give this beer, but here's why...

A - It pours almost clear from the bottle. literally. In the glass, it is a beautiful varying density translucent white-straw color with a 1 finger head comprised of large and small bubbles.

S - Spice and yeast. Exactly as I am expecting.

T - Bread, spices, and citrus. It is hard for me to describe beyond these terms as it is for me the perfect mix of these three flavors. It leaves a bit of a tang for a finish.

M - It has a medium density feel; not thick, but not watery like a "lite" beer. There is carbonation, no doubt, but not to the point that it feels like soda.

O - For a wit bier it is the standard by which I will measure all others. There is another reason that I love this beer. The label claims that this beer is made in the style of Pierre Celis, and frankly, they have nailed it. If you are unfamiliar with the late, great Mr. Celis, please google him. He was a fantastic Belgian brewer but not so great of a business man. He also brewed in Texas under the label of Celis Brewery in the 90's. As best as my taste buds can recall, this beer is a dead ringer for the Celis White and is one of the reasons I fell in love with craft beers.

Coriander, Crackery, Zesty, Fizzy

Cloudy pale yellow with white lacing, this Wit throws aromas of soft wheat, coriander and zest. Crisp, fizzy and light-bodied with a dry, orangey twang. Doughy, crackery malts with some bready sweetness meld well with the spicy coriander notes. Some green banana appears midway, fading into the dry and grainy semi-astringent finish. The carbonation is a bit too fizzy for my liking, and the flavors are short-lived, but overall this is a refreshing Wit.

As reviewed in BeerAdvocate magazine #115 (August 2016).

Very good beer in my local area, standard wit - orange / coriander mix, although when it warms up smells kind of musty. Keep it cold and you're fine.
