Pours a mostly transparent, straw color with a modest head of soapy, white suds. Crisp aroma smells of biscuity malt, coriander, bubblegum, and a hint of orange.

The taste is surprisingly juicy for a witbier, with perhaps not enough carbonation and/or yeast to cut through the citrus and spice. Aside from that, the taste follows the nose closely. The mouthfeel comes off pretty flat in spite of the medium body.

I must admit I expected better from Two Brothers. There’s plenty of flavor to be had, but it tends to run amok abit in the absence of a proper mouthfeel.

12oz bottle. 7/6/16 BB date. Appearance: Pale yellow and slightly cloudy, with minimal white foam head that dissipated quickly. Aroma: Steing coriander and light Belgian yeast fruitiness, specifically pear and banana. Taste: Light crackery and wheat maltiness, with light apple and pear fruitiness. The pear seems to intensify on the swallow. Finishes with some light orange zest and moderate coriander spice bite. Low bitterness Mouthfeel: Medium body with a low carbonation. Creaminess from the wheat and its is rather low. Finish: Coriander and lemon zestimate swallow lingers for a bit, with some retronasal pear esters. Overall: A run of the mill Wit. Appearance is relatively clear for the style, aroma has some nice but muted fruity esters, and the taste is a bit on the sweet side. Carbonation was also a little low
