Cloudy yellow colored beer with a small white colored head.

Smells of malt and straw. Mild coriander. Scents of clove but not real strong.

Starts out neutral in sweetness and tasting of straw and cloves. Sensation of salt on the tongue. No real bitterness to talk about. Hard Water Taste.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Hate to give a DFH beer a low rating but this is just OK.

A flavorful wit that has a complex spicy flavor that sets it above most wits.

16oz pint at Whole Foods bar in Highland Village.
Pale, hazy yellow with a 1/8" white micro head. No retention and no lace.
Muted aroma of wheat and the faintest citrus.
Flavor is muted and mild as well...it's like cooking - if you want the food to taste like something you can;t be afraid to season liberally. Needs some coriander and orange peel and lots of it in here to give this thing a flavor to style. Mainly a wheat beer and that's it.
Nothing remarkable here, and overall fairly disappointing.

For a wit this is a middle of the road but just above the competition. Not really anything to buy a six pack over, but if you want to change it up for a lawn mower brew, this is a good one to go for.
