Pours a partially coudy, light yellow color with a decent 2 finger white head that falls to lacing fast.

Smell is lemon, coriander, a certain spiciness, sourdough bread, and grains. rather pleasant, I have never poured this beer into a glass before, just drank from the bottle, so I never knew how pleasant this smelled.

Taste is a light citrus zest, white grapes, spices, and wheat, with a nice yeastiness.

Mouthfeel is nice and light with a crisp feel.

Overall a nice witbier, but kind of expensive.
