L - pale yellow with a white head - pretty decent head retention
S - Citrus - lemon, orange, corriander - not really strong though
T - Citrus and wheat - lots of lemon, orange, and corriander. Slight hop taste with some pepper on the back end. Maybe even a little banana somwhere in between.
F - medium body with moderate amounts of carbonation - smooth - good mouth feel
O - a good witbier - light and refreshing with nice citrus notes and a slight peppery finish

Poured from the tap into a pint glass in Savannah, GA. The appearance is a murky yellow color with a very small white head. The aroma is full of grains and bread. The taste is grains, bananas with some pepper.

A: Very light straw white color with soapy lacing.
S: Faint orange and coriander smell.
T: Very spicy, peppery, and coriander-filled flavor. Reminds me of Einstok's witbier.
M: Medium bodied and sessionable.
O: A decent Witbier that I'd recommend giving a try, especially if you like strong coriander flavor.
