Damn good witbier! Pours a beautiful golden color with a white head and some lacing. Coriander is the predominate smell. The taste is citrus, coriander but a deeper taste than Blue Moon maybe it's the peppercorns. Will definitely have again.

Look: 1-2 finger head. Pale and hazy. Head recedes to a decent 1/4" foam ring with nice lacing. Stays pretty active. Saison-like
Smell: Belgian-funk-yeast smell. Very grassy and spicy smelling. Some malt, biscuit, and cracker hints. Again: Saison-like
Taste: Slight hop bitterness at first. Then a dry blast of funk that is earthy and grass-like. After the funk fades, the spices come through (some coriander, pepper, oregano, parsley flavors). Slight citrus notes: Orange, lemon.
Feel: Medium bodied. A bit oily and slippery on the tongue.
Overall: Very good. I expected more of a Belgian Wit, but it is closer to a Saison to me. Very flavorful though - enjoyable.

Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Smells of wheat and orange. Tastes of wheat, citrus, and spice. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Overall this is a tasty and light witbier.

Belgian yeast with more depth of flavor and less sweetness by way of more wheat, lemongrass, and peppery notes. Love how this is not sweet and way more complex compared to other wits.

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Hazy straw-like gold with a nice thick white head and lacing.

Smell: Mostly yeast and wheat. A hint of lemon and orange.

Taste: Wheat, orange, lemon, peper.

Mouthfeel: Very crisp, refreshing.

Overall: I am not a huge fan or wheat beers, but this one is great. Easy to drink and tasty.
