A-Pours a soft, creamy yellow color with a vibrant white head and good retention. Leaves behind a fair amount of lacing.

S-Ginger is a bit overpowering. Under that ginger are subtle notes of sharp cheese, funky Belgian yeast, floral hops, and other spices

T-Ginger and other spices take over at the front of the palate and allow for a little nuance. Floral hops and that funky Belgian yeast/cheese flavor makes a quick appearance as the finish is overpowered by the ginger again.

MF-Mellow, a bit carbonated with a dry finish. Overall pretty satisfying here.

O-A nice interpretation of the style, but I like my Wits to be a little less sharp. The ginger is overpowering and allows for little nuance. Wits are the best when they are complex and have those soft fruit and cheesy/yeast flavors.

12 oz bottle courtesy of fthomasl pours a hazed yellow with a small cap of white head. Pretty good retention and lacing for the size of the foam.

Nose has plenty of coriander and soft wheat, but there seems to be another spice in there I cant quite grasp...cinnamon maybe? Smells pretty tasty and a little different than most witbiers.

Taste is pretty good, has the soft feel I like in a wit with a nice coriander presence. The orange peel is lower than usual and I am still getting some different spices than I am used to...really makes for an interesting beer. I like it, I would buy it again for sure.
