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.

Pours a very hazy pale yellow out of a can. Not sure if normal, but a lot of sediment at bottom of glass. Taste is mild compared to many other wits. It is easy drinking. Would be easy to drink several of these during the course of the night.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a slightly murky light yellow color with a large white head. The aroma is full of citrus and spice. The taste was citrus and was pretty heavily carbonated. A good witbier.
