look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Comes in a 33cl brown stubbie with a blue, white and black label featuring what looks like a Gothic church under snow flurries. Ingredients conform to the purity law. Best before 12/4/04, I opened it on 4/17/04.

Pours a cloudy, very bubbly light yellow under a two finger white head with nice body and some lace. The head lasted so long there was a marshmallow sized head left when I finished the last of the liquid. The nose is very sweet and strongly reminiscent of raspberry, with yeasty tones as well. The mouth was very prickly and fairly light. There's lots of spice up front, cinnamon and pepper, plus some lemon and clove. There are no hops, but some malt and yeast come out in the finish. The aftertaste is fresh and lemondrop sweet. It's OK, but I'm not doing any dances here.

Short story: This might be the best witbier I've ever had.

Long story: Pours a gorgeous semi-hazy gold color with a dense, thick, rocky head. Looks like a massive spring monsoon inside the class from the swirls of carbonation rising through the brew. Absolutely stunning to watch. Smells and tastes of citrus, coriander. Perfectly easy to drink. A slight lemon/wheat to yeast transition -- nothing jarring or misplaced at all. A fine specimen.

i thought this was pretty good, light, refreshing citric spicyness, which i like. Hazy yellow/lemon colour, with a nice fluffy white head, which leaves excellent lace, i like it.
