Maybe it's because i had a hot day working outside and this just seemed to hit the spot. Or maybe, it's just a good brew.

Beautiful highlights of yellow are observed along with the distinctive haze that comes with a witbier. But some hazes turn me off whereas the haze on this one was strangely appealing. The odor was mostly coriander, not overpowering, and mixed with some spicy and citrus smells I can't quite point out. Anyway, it all works. On the tongue it is quite carbonated, too much for my taste and a bit astringent, but both are easily overlooked. I really enjoyed the sessionable taste, I wish I had more, I could easily down 3-4 of these in one sitting. Overall, this is another very good beer from a brewer that I am keeping my eye out for more offerings.

This was a great beer and right up my alley. If I have more than one then I know its a beer for me. It was nice and light with some interesting flavors of spice, maybe coriander. I would carry this again as it sold well for us.

This witbier from Weyerbacher pours to a brief-lived, medium creamy white head on an effervescent, hazy-cloudy palish-straw body; lacing is scant, consisting of fast-retreating swoops and blotches. The nose is light-medium in intensity: a fairly balanced blend of coriander, wheat and yeast, a more subdued lemon character and the slightest hint of alcohol on top. The palate is a light, tangy lemon flavor with subtle coriander and a slight yeast bite, all over a light, fairly murky, modestly caramelish wheat foundation. The finish is pretty clean, showing just a bit of lemon and light caramel, followed by a slight wheat aftertaste that is tinged with dark herbs and lasts a minute or two. The mouthfeel is lightish even for the light body, and the texture is medium-creamy and medium-peppery from the well-expressed carbonation. (12 oz bottle, 99 days after pkg)

Poured into a small narrow glass: color is straw gold, head is bright white with fine to medium sized bubbles with moderate lacing on the glass.

Smell is pleasant, nice wheat/biscuit upfront, then moderate clove/banana and hints of spice and orange, finish is a little grainy.

Taste is also good, nice wheat/biscuit/bread flavor then less prominent spice and yeast off flavors than expected. More graininess in the finish of the taste as well.

Mouthfeel is a bit sharp, maybe overcarbonated and somewhat crisp/biting on the tongue.

Overall, this beer looks and smells good but the flavor and mouthfeel are just a touch sharp and grainy for my preference in the style.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Look: It pours pale yellow with a full white head that produced plenty of Belgian lace.

Smell: It has fruity aromas highlighted by lemon with hints of coriander.

Taste: There are spices, lemon, citrus notes and coriander int the flavors.

Feel: It has a light feel to it with a slightly bitter finish.

Overall: The flavors and aromas seemed to be a bit more reserved than most over Wits that I've had.

Really underwhelming Belgian. More like an American blonde. Actually very good on a hot summer day but compared to other Belgians it's very weak.
