Much too hoppy for the style. Should be categorized as an IPA.

Appearance: Hazy bright yellow in color, with a somewhat coarse white head, which retains well.

Aroma: A bit hoppy for the style, grapefruit rind hops dominate the aroma,

Taste: Opens with fairly sharp hops, followed by lesser coriander and wheat. As the taste progresses, the wheat malt and hops dominate, leaving little of the character of a traditional Witbier. Finishes with a moderate round of grapefruit hops.

Mouth feel: Smooth and full, very pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: If you always thought that traditional Witbier examples were under hopped, this is your beer.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce aluminum can, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Pouted into tulip glass. 2 finger head dissipated within two minutes. Smells very nice, citrus and spice. Cloudy. Tastes great, again herbal and spice. Coriander? Very nice witbier.

Poured from tap into shaker, nice 1 finger creamy head, dissipates after a while to a pool, great lacing. Crystal clear pale yellow in color, this has to be classified wrong, no yest visible. Very little yeast profile to the nose, get some pale malt, a little citrus and perhaps an inkling of saison yeast. Taste is biscuit on the front, a little spicy and a burst of citrus on the back end. Mild bitterness, nice tingly mouth-feel, not sure this is a wit though Ah in looking this is considered a Belgian inspired wit/wheat beer. I would just man up and classify it as a Belgian IPA and let the yeast have more profile. Still an enjoyable beer at 4.6 abv

Straw plus color with tight white head; excellent clarity and decent cap and ok lacing. Light lemon nose. Light lemon taste. Light mouthfeel and moderate plus carbonation. Overall a citrus forward wheat beer that barely resembled a Belgian Witt.

A nice Belgian white by Real Ale. Poured from a can, a bit hazy yellow with good head and lacing. Nice lemony smell that carries over to the taste. Spice like a saison. A tasty beer!

I am really not a fan of this style but wanted to give it a try. Muh. Had to put a lemon slice in it. I like most Real Ale offerings. This not so much.
