Poured from a standard pressure-cap bottle into a semi-conic glass in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Best-by Dec. 5, 2013 (I think). Reviewed live.

A- One-finger white creamy head with relatively rapidly eroding retention. Hangs around as thin, clear lacing and white floaters. Golden color with high clarity and active carbonation. Excellent looking witbier.

S- I'm getting the wheat, the coriander, some citrusy notes and some sweetness. I can;t quite pinpoint what citrus I'm smelling, but it's certainly a fruity, zesty little beer. Attractive aroma.

T- Has the citrus that it should, but the spices and underlying Belgian-style yeasts keep it earth and less dramatic. Has good flavor, not incredibly detailed, but good.

M- Medium bodied, slightly creamy with a grainy, wet finish.

O- One of the best Wits I have had. Not great, but I'm not a big fan of the style.
