Wheat, coriander, blood orange, and chamomile dominate the aroma, with a soft floral note of rose.

Flavor reveals more Belgian ester character, with dominant notes of pear and bruised apple that linger throughout. Orange and chamomile blend interestingly initially, but quickly fade to a slightly sweet toasted malt backbone. A bit flat.

Undated can at 42 degrees into a SA “Perfect Pint”
Aroma weak, kind of medicine, no orange
Head large (Five cm, aggressive pour), off white, frothy/fizzy, rapidly diminishing to broken 1-2 mm ring and small island of tiny bubbles
Lacing – none
Body light yellow, cloudy, dark lumps in bottom of can
Flavor odd – lacks the yeasty phenolics of most witbiers, somewhat “chemical-ly” (not in a good way); no hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl, no orange – any of which would help the flavor
Palate medium, somewhat oily, lively carbonation

Appearance 3, Aroma 2.5, Flavor 2.5, Palate 3.5, Overall 2.75

I haven't had many beers of this style and as such have little comparable information. This one poured a hazy yellow/gold color with a nice 1" white head that fades quickly.

Upon smelling the beer, I'm blasted with oranges and some coriander. Unfortunately this doesn't transfer to taste. I really didn't get any citrus taste; rather overpowering is the wheat/hay taste which I'm really not a fan of.

This one left a really bitter dry taste in my mouth (I love IPAs so I don't mind bitter in most cases), that really left little to be desired.

If offered a can/pour I wouldn't turn it down, but this is not one I'll be buying again.

For the sake of the brewery, I am hopeful that it was just a bad keg or dirty lines in the tap. But the smell and taste was dirty and left a horrible bitter aftertaste. I may try it again, but I'm afraid it would be similar to leaving curdled milk out for a week then giving it another taste to be sure that, indeed, it will never be a good taste.

16 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 3/25/2015. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, orange, pear, apple, light banana, coriander, clove, wheat, bread, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, orange, pear, apple, light banana, coriander, clove, wheat, bread, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast/herbal spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange, pear, apple, light banana, coriander, clove, wheat, bread, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good robustness of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; with a good malt/yeast/spice balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is good witbier style. All around good robustness and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. Not much blood orange noticeable in the aromas or flavors; but an enjoyable offering as a general witbier.
