$1.23 special.

Appearance (3.75) : pours a hazy pineapple-orange body with a dish soapy 2 finger head. Opacity is 80%. Leaves very little on the glass after receding, though.

Smell (4) : this is a wit, alright. Vanilla, orange, spice, wheat. Cinnamon. A little coriander. Yep.

Taste (4) : Cinnamon out front with generous vanilla-orange oddity. The body is yeasty and wheaty, a bit bready too. The finish is dry spice and clove. This is a good wit.

Mouthfeel (3.75) : light to medium bodied, spicy and dry, crisp, lightly stiff. A good mouthfeel for the style. I like the spicy bite.

Overall (3.89) : a must-buy-again. I love wits and this is no exception. Nice, snowy, fluffy, good tasting wit.
