Hazy gold-amber with a moderate white blanket.

Smell and taste are pretty much identical, bringing toasted wheat, apple and orange peel with a moderate phenolic character.

Crisp, medium body with a semi-wet finish.

There are some refreshing Witbier's out there, but this wasn't one of them for me.

L: A hazy yellow with a puffy white head
S: Can most definitely smell the spices, the orange comes through on the exhale
T: The coriander hits first, and then the orange comes behind sweetening the overall taste, but the spiciness lingers
F: Light and crisp.
O:Good, refreshing lighter beer. Would get again.

This was poured into a flared tulip.
The appearance was a glossy yellow color with a slim bar pour's kind of white head. Quick dissipation yields some stringy lacing quickly sliding into the beer.
The smell takes in some oranges, lemongrass in a sweet way and then allows some coriander to blend into the rest of it.
The taste was mainly sweet with a decent kick of the spice (coriander) to balance decently.
The mouthfeel was about a light on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation rests nicely on my tongue as it's fairly mild. Light yeastiness clings in a decent bready (light stickiness) sort of way on my tongue.
Overall, its a decent witbier. If anything, it went well with the Reuben I had along with it.

355ml bottle from Drinks of the World, Basel, Switzerland (5.20 CHF):
A simple but very well done witbier with all the usual flavours (orange zest, spice, lemongrass & coriander). Not the most unique from DFH but a great beer with good carbonation, a fresh & crisp feel with nice balance & it was easy to drink; another excellent offering from the brewery.

Appearance: cloudy, straw color; very frothy white head, at least 2 fingers, which lingered for some time. Smell: orange, lemon, coriander and a little pepper. Taste: follows the nose; getting more of the peppercorns; lemony / hoppy finish at the end, but very slight and not overpowering. Mouthfeel: light bodied and creamy. Overall: a great wit!
