Solid gold, and much less hazy than I'd expect from a witbier. Not much head, either, so not much to look at, really. Smells nice, very vinous and tart, like church communion wine. Lots of coriander, lavender, lemon balm. Soapy, but not in a bad way. Lots of fruit, as well – lychee and tangerine, mostly. Nice.

The flavor doesn't really deliver on what the aroma promised. Mostly, it's quite thin and watery – it's not got the ebullient carbonation I'd hope for in a witbier, and both the malts and the hops seem to come up a bit short. There are nice flashes of juicy hop character – grapefruit, lychee, and lemongrass – but just flashes. Lots being thrown at the wall here, but nothing really sticks.
