Chilled 12 oz. bottle into a weizen glass. Best by date 7.6.13.

Look- Nearly-clear straw/pale amber with three fingers of dense eggshell head that sticks around for a minute or two. Very nice, well developed lacing.

Smell- Clean light malt and mellow warm spice, dominated by clove. Light sweetness, makes me think of sesame candy.

Taste- Standard oyster cracker and mild spice profile with an underlying light fresh bread sweetness that carries through to the finish before the barest hint of clean hop bittering cleans it up, leaving just a bit of honey and spice. Above average. Overall impression of fresh biscuits.

Mouthfeel- Light-medium body, light carbonation with a very light prickle on the sip. Borderline heavy for the style, fair amount of coating and stick. Not particularly crisp, but
finishes pretty clean nonetheless.

Overall - Not too flashy, but solid. Yeast profile very much reminds me of Breckinridge Agave Wheat.

Strong sweet, coriander aroma. Good aroma for a wit. About what you would expect.

Hazy, light golden complexion. Again, pretty much on the mark.

Taste is definitely sweet, orange forward out of the gate. Heavy dose of coriander spice as well. Some wits ease up on these qualities but this definitely doesn't. Sweet and spicy. The finish is long and sweet with notes of spice and wheat. I isn't too complex, after all it is a wit, but it's a damn fine rendition.

Pours a huge, dense, white head that dissipates, leaving a little lacing. Soft, floral aroma has notes of banana. Hazy, straw color. Starts with a nice, mild bitterness that is citric in nature. Builds in malt flavor, a flash of metallic, but a big bready, malt finish.

Overall, not too bad. Better than the Ebel's Weiss, but I'd like to see a more aggressive citric character in it. It seems mostly like a slightly citric Hefeweizen.
