A- A lemony haze opaque beauty. Poured into a Tulip glass, not the suggested glass. Had a 1.5 inch head.

S- The smell was refreshing with a fruity, coriander, lemony nose. Had a very clean nose.

T- Really loved the taste. Had a yeasty somewhat banna flavor. Followed the nose in that it was very refreshing and clean.

M- The mouthfeel was a medium thickness.

O- Overall really enjoyed this on a very hot summer day in Atlanta. Will get a growler of this again soon.

Strong, sharp, spicy aroma has fruity and wheaty notes, promising a flavorful beer. It pours a clear, bright solar yellow with a decent, if not thick, white head that leaves minimal lacing. Mouth-filling flavor has firm spicy (mainly cloves and coriander), wheaty and citrus notes plus hints of hops and butterscotch. Lively texture has about average body and plenty of fizz. Lip-smacking and very tasty, refreshing after a summer scorcher.

Poured into a tulip, has a nice pale gold color with a nice cloudy appearance. Large creamy white head. Lacing is very strong.

Smell is srong cirtus/orange notes up front. A bit of lemon as well, then followed by spicy notes. Very good in terms of the stlye, but not what I would call an overly assertive smell.

Taste is slightly sweet upfront followed up by the strong citrus component. No real assertive hop presence to speak of, which is fine for the style. The spices really come through here, but beyond the usual corriander I won't even pretend to guess what they are. Nothing outlandish though, and it flows very well with the citrus.

Mouthfeel is full, creamy, and smooth. The carbonation is just about perfect for this style and probably the highlight of the beer for me.

I've had plenty of witbiers over the years and the usual fall under the "eh" category for me. This one really stood out for me though, in terms of being a relatively light beer that packs a ton of flavor to go with a full, smooth, yet easydrinking mouthfeel.

A-Pours a hazy bright yellow with a bright white head

S-lemon zest, coriander, and a hint of Belgian yeast

T-Essentially the same as the nose-lemon zest, coriander, citrus notes, and some Belgian yeast

M-light with about the perfect amount of carbonation, yet somewhat creamy

D-I could drink this all day.

I'm not a huge fan of this style, though its growing on me, but I really enjoyed this beer and could see myself drinking more of it in the future.
