I used to love Great Lakes Holy Moses White Ale but it is no longer for sale in MI. Belgian Wits have always left me wanting more flavor. This is the answer. Highly articulated flavors of orange, coriander, nutmeg, ginger, lemon merengue, and spice exist in perfect balance. The body is paradoxically almost solid, with aromas and flavors bouyantly rolicking in the foam, as well as vapor-thin, responding to the slightest pressure by melting and transforming into a different arrangement of sensations. Tight bead, viscous, it melts in your mouth and leaves a whistle-clean bright citrus note that goes on and on. Absolutely beautiful.

Pours hazy golden with a white head that dissipates quickly. There's lots of carbonation present. There's an slight, pleasing aroma of citrus, black pepper and bread. The taste? Wow. It's a pleasing slightly sweet citrus flavor with a creamy texture on the first sip. The black pepper hits you as well as the grain on the way down. All the flavors shine through and are perfectly balanced. The mouthfeel is light to medium and the carbonation aids greatly in the drinkability of this beer. I could see myself buying this again. This is a fantastic beer that I would recommend to anyone who likes a good witbier.
