The pour is a hazy marmalade color & the head goes flat real quick (sigh). The taste is coriander & orange but the orange is a bit much, they should have gone with the typical orange peel which is what most brewers use for the Belgian Witbier style rather that actual orange juice. Cheers! C

Served on tap at Yards House in Orlando, Florida.
A: Pours an ever so slightly hazy, golden color with a 1 finger, white head, more than rim retention, and moderate camouflage shaped lacing.
S: Aromas banana, lemon, coriander, and cloves.
T: More semidry than semisweet. Flavor largely derived from nose, but citrusy with a strong does of coriander. Medium bitterness for the style.
M: Light bodied with low to moderate carbonation.
O: A very drinkable and enjoyable Wit.

A pleasant wit.
While it is less hazy than typical, this wit still Looks the part with a fluffy white head with very big bubbles that eventually becomes lace. Smells are more average with only strong orange coming through. Tastes are slightly better as it has gentle spicing and a very soft Feel from the wheat. I lately am having wits with Indian food and had White Marlin with Chana Masala and it paired well enough. Cooled the palate.

I went on Sailfish's website and they don't seem to distinguish themselves much from other Florida brewers: young and growing each year, presumably with more tourism business. I did notice they seem to specialize in Belgians. So, I'd like to try some of the more challenging styles next year and see how Sailfish has matured.
