A - The beer pours with one and a half fingers of white foam on top of a slightly hazy, straw-golden colored body. The head is supported by masses of rising bubbles and seems like it could persist indefinitely.

S - Very spicy with notes of coriander, ginger, clove, and lemongrass. Some bready wheat malt in the background.

T - Bready malt and wheat up front with some coriander. Some soft wheat in the middle and a bit of orange. The beer finishes with notes of orange and lemon peel with a hint of pepper.

M - Medium-thick body, high carbonation, and a somewhat dry finish.

D - Wow, this is surprisingly good. I am not generally a fan of witbier, but the balance between the wheat and the spices here works exceptionally well. The lemongrass the lemongrass is a really nice touch, it helps cut through the cloying thickness that many other wits seem to develop and it makes the beer taste much brighter. Unusually drinkable and very much worth trying.
