Poured a beautiful cloudy yellow with a fluffy one finger white head that receded to a quarter finger and left plentiful lacing. Scents of citrus, banana, and spices. Flavors of citrus, coriander, a bit of clove in the middle and on the finish. Hints of wheat. Quite dry, lacks agood deal of sweetness. Mouthfeel is light bodied with moderate carbonation, a bit low on the carbonation for the style, but not bad. All told, when rated
to style it is the best witbier I've had to date. Far better than Blue Moon and Hoegaarden.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter.

Color is pale white. Very hazy and cloudy. Opaque. About a couple fingers thick white head that has decent retention. Excellent lacing left on the sides. Some bubbles.

Aroma is of wheat, yeast, little sweetness, some tartness, spices. Cinnamon and clove. Strength is moderate.

Taste is just about the same. Tartness is low. Not sweet either. Clove, cinnamon and some other spices. Wheat and yeast texture. Silky and smooth. Finish is semisweet to slightly dry.

Mouth feel is medium to light bodied. Very smooth and easy texture. Velvety touch. No astringency. Drinks rather easily. Sessionable.
