Poured in a clear pilsner glass with 1/4 orange slice.
Looks very pale and cloudy
Smells citrus and coriander
Taste is much like the scent - citrus and spice. A little too much coriander for me.
Feel is light, thin and just a little watery.
Overall this was an ok beer, but a little too much spice for my taste.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.

L---Cloudy, pale yellow color. Fairly light, white head with no real retention. Left some, but not much, lacing.

S---Smells spicy. Coriander is dominant. Light orange and pepper.

T---Tastes like a proper wit. Coriander, lemon, orange & pepper all meld together nicely.

F---More carbonated than the lack of head suggested. Light & creamy.

O---Quite a good witbier. Hits all the notes you'd want out of a Belgian inspired wit.

Poured into a tall clear pint glass. Very pale, faded yellow that is hazy. Big fluffy white soapy head, great lacing. High carbonation.

Obvious notes of coriander, light peppercorns, lemony composition, white wheat, and other citrus smells.

Crisp taste of lemongrass, coriander, raw yeast and wheat, and lemon and citrus notes--particularly orange. Feels rich and smooth.

Cloudy Light Golden colour, hint of citrus with a bitter zest to it, light body, easy to drink on those hot days....

Poured into weizen glass. Lovely pale yellow. Thin white head that gives to a ring.

Coriander nose w/ light peppercorn spice as it warms up.

Taste is mostly classic wit, but the orange is extra creamy. Spice is in the finish.

Smooth mouth. Sooooo drinkable.

Not too different from your average Belgian white, but also more complicated than it initially seems. Refreshing, serviceable witbier from the Heads of Dogfish.

Pours a very pale and hazy yellow. Nice white frothy head that dissipates to a thin line. Good lacing. Sweet citrusy smell. Spicy upon arrival with a lemony and orange zesty citrus flavor. Nice malt background and mildly hopped. Mouthfeel is on the thin side. This is a decent summer time beer that will quench your thirst. Nothing outstanding, but better than your average AAL.

Poured from a bottle into a glass.

Refreshing. A little hazy. Tawny. Low on bitterness and unpleasant twang. High on coriander and lemongrass. A subtle citrus hint. An overall sweet note akin to honeysuckle. A great wit.
