A: (3/3) Unbelievably crystal clear almost colorless light yellow produces gigantic foamy head. After yeast swish, so much fun watching it cascade through the head and into the beer below.
S: (9/12) Coriander and black pepper pair well with the strong wheat aromas
T: (16/20) Decidedly light flavor profile. A good contrast to a fin du monde--similar profile but that guy smashes you over the head with wheat. If I focus, I can taste a similar balance of the spices above, though.
M: (4/5) Medium carbonation. A little bit of heft to the body for a wit but otherwise spot-on for style. Little dryness on the finish.
O: (7/10) I want more. Simply put this is a weak beer. It’s good, don’t get me wrong. Just weak. Now, having said that, this is a witbier, not a hefeweizen, certainly not a dunkelweizen, so I can’t fault it for that. It has a little bit of that “artificially sweetened” flavor that turns me off from other spiced or fruity beers, but otherwise it’s solid.
39/50
