A - cloudy yellow; half of an inch of fizzy, white, dense head; great retention

S - yeasty, faint lemon

T - straw, yeast, lemon, faint spice, coriander

M - smooth, a bit crisp, light to medium bodied

This is a decent beer. It is to style, it has the better of the styles characteristics, but it doesn't have the more spicy, peppery notes that I like in my Witbier. If this is you're style then this is a good example of the traditional Belgian style.

Had on tap. Poured into a pint glass. Lovely light colored straw appearance with a fluffy head. This is the perfect summer beer. It's easy drinking, but perfectly executed wit. Which is why it is so enjoyable. I could drink this all day. Thinking about swing over to the craft store and getting a couple extra bottles for home later.

12oz bottle (no dates/codes) into a tulip. Pours a pale lemon yellow w/ a 1-finger bright white sudsy head, wisps of suspended sediment.

Aroma is spicy, slightly soapy Belgian yeast, pepper, coriander, lemon zest; fruity perfumy esters. Lots going on here.

Taste is a little disappointing after the aroma. Pale wheat malt, soft Belgian yeast, peppery spices, lemon. Also a slightly metallic taste I can't quite ID. Taste is a little flat, one-dimensional.

Mouthfeel is smooth and soft from the bottle conditioning.

Overall a good rendition of a witbier, admittedly not among my favorite styles.
