A: [2.50] The beer forms almost no head. Just a thin ring around the edge of the glass. Even that is gone instantly. The beer itself is a cloudy apricot color. Overall it is not that appealing to the eye. The bottle does list the ABV (4.8%) and there is a date code that says it was born (07/09/15)

S: [2.00] Smells like a Belgian yeast bomb. Belgian yeast is a scent/flavor that I avoid at all costs. This may not go well... I get nothing else on the nose.

T: [2.50] Belgian yeast up front. Trying to act like an adult and keep going to find other flavors. There is a hint of lemon rind. After a few sips the Belgian yeast flavor is subduing.

M: [3.00] This is really carbonated. I actually like the high carbonation it gives the beer a refreshing feeling to it.

O: [2.75] Belgian yeast is basically my kryptonite. I know "why get a Wit if you hate the yeast it is made from?" Well sometimes I buy a beer without knowing the style just to try it out and see what I can figure out without pre-reading reviews and descriptions. That being said. The mouthfeel is the highlight on this guy. Crisp and refreshing. That's it. I won't drink this again voluntarily.

Hazy gold-amber with a moderate white blanket.

Smell and taste are pretty much identical, bringing banana, wheat, apple and moderate to heavy phenolic character. Toasted cracker and orange emerge as it warms.

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.
