Poured from a bottle to an English pint glass. Hazy blonde with a thick frothy white head that recedes with nice lacing. Aroma is orange peel, lemon, coriander. Flavor is the same. There’s also pepper in the finish. Thin mouthfeel. Nice summer beer..

A: Dull lemon brass with some orange hues for coloring that was filled with a moderately rising effervesce filling the glass. A softy frothy, cream like head, leaves various clumping for lace behind.

S: Bright lemon and coriander along with oranges are evident upfront. Lightly dry wheat along with lemongrass fills the nose while finishing out with a slight dry citrus sourness. Reminds me a bit of a hoegaarden.

T: Bright and sassy on the open with a zing of citrusy hops, lemon, and a strong dry wheat backing. Fresh oranges is mingles with evident lemongrass notes that is slightly dry and sour with an acidic bite thrown in for good measure. Solid by example flavorwise.

M: Zippy on the carbonation factor brings the mouthful to life with a sharp as a tack feeling. Creamy wheat and oat like texture with a medium body and dry lemon grind coating on the tongue.

D: Nice drinkability, though towards the end of the bottle you will start feeling the slowdown a bit. A bright zing brings a good start to the drink, while a bomber should suffice and be a good example per style.

A: Pours a cloudy light orange color with a nice two finger white head.

S: Lita of wheat and coriander here. Maybe a touch of lemongrass in the background with some orange.

T: A good amount of orange and coriander with a nice light flavor profile. Some ginger and lemongrass as well. Definitely is under carbonated. Just a hint of carbonation would do this beer wonders.

Looks like a wit. Smells like a wit. Tastes like a wit. Real nice citrus tones showing through with those peppercorns ending up on the backside. Easy to drink. There are some thicker yeast tones with a bready edge on the backside that probably interfere with those characteristics, but the beer overall is pretty nice. This is a very true to style brew. I think it's a very wise idea that they put this in 12 ouncers.

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.
