Poured from the 12 oz bottle into a snifter.
Pours a light blonde with half a finger of tiny bubble head.
Smells nice! Good coriander and peppery notes.
Tastes clean and fresh, mellow spice.
Finishes dry.
Overall this is another well crafted beer from DFH. Tasty and sessionable!

This brew pours a cloudy straw color with a small white, fluffy, creamy looking head with strong carbonation.

The smell is wheat, coriander, citrus and other spices with a light pepper smell being the most dominant. There is also a biscuty, cracker smell.

The taste is sweet and citrus like. There is a crisp, lager like cleanness followed by a dryness. There is also a light bready taste.

The mouthfeel is dry, on the thin side, which is normal for this style. There is a dry aftertaste left in the mouth after swallowing.

Overall this is a decent, lightly spiced wheat beer. It is definitely worth trying. If the spices were a bit more prominent this would be an even better beer.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a bright and hazy yellowish straw orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Solid two fingers of white head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of lacing.

Smell: A fruity and spicy wheat driven aroma with big hints of citrus and coriander. Belgian yeast with some hints of coriander and white pepper. Wheat and pale malt with hints of grains, straw, cracker, and biscuit. Big citrus fruit presence with hints of orange, lemon, and pineapple. Subtle earthy hop hints of grass. A pretty solid wheat beer aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a spicy and fruity wheat driven taste with big notes of citrus fruit and coriander spice. Belgian yeast along with notes of coriander and white pepper spicing. Bready wheat and pale malt with notes of straw, grains, cracker, and biscuit. Good taste of juicy citrus fruit with notes of oranges, lemon, and pineapple. Background notes of earthy hops with some grass. A pretty solid witbier taste.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Crisp, clean, juicy, and smooth.

Overall: A very good take on a Belgian style Witbier. Good notes of citrus and coriander.
