Pours hazy and very light color straw.The palest with a crown of good white foam that lasts well. Nose is spicy and breaddy. Lots of earth and only faint clove. Not too much banana in fact hardly any. Some hop peeks out as it warms to show a bit of pepper. Flavors follow the nose. This is the perfect witbier. Some complexity on the palate but only lightly. A crisp finish with a very light tartness to keep the mouth watering. Mouthfeel is medium light and lightly creamy. Hops give a slight bitterness to finish it.

Possibly above average looks. Delicate coriander aromatics, but not complex.
Taste is about the same, but also not distinguished.
Smooth mouthfeel.
Overall, there are better ones out there.
If I try this again, it would be in a bottle in the hope the yeast adds some of the better Belgian funk.

MJ gave this 2 stars of 4 in his 1999 edition.

L: Straw yellow in color, lots of bubbles from carbonation. Pours a very fluffy white head that leaves nice lace.
S: Pretty mild, some hint of spice, maybe a little biscuity.
T: Really mild flavor, touches of what a normal wit taste like but with much less oomph.
F: Smooth as hell, velvety, high carbonation yet goes back so easy and is quite pillowy in texture.
O: Really just kind of standard. Not bad, not good. Goes back easy as hell though.
