Not a big fan of the style but this I'll easily have again. All in all, a solid and tastefully spiced white , as you'd expect from Dogfish.

Several 12 ounce bottles consumed over several days/nights. Poured into a Speigelau stemmed Pilsner glass. Thus far, I have only seen this beer sold by the individual bottle at my local Whole Foods. Was there this afternoon and there were none left. Too bad, as this is a wonderful Witbier and one that I'd drink happily again and again. The only two Witbiers I rate higher than this are Allagash White and St. Bernardus Witbier. My favorite offering so far from Dogfish Head.

Poured with a huge head and high in carbonation. Very distinct wheat flavor. Didn't get much of the spices. I will have to come back to this one and give it another try.

The overall look of the beer is a familiar look like any other pale ale. However, the head is a fluffy white texture that hints a citrus smell! The first taste came across as a peppery lemon flavor that ended in a buttery bitter finish. The feel came off smooth and lathered my tongue. Overall, the beer spoke for itself. It became such a peace offering with how smooth it was and fulfilling. Definitely an easy sip!
