A - Pours a clear gold with a one-finger white head. The head dissapates quickly leaving some light lacing.

S - Faint aromas of corriander, orange, and Belgian yeast.

T - The taste is Belgian yeast, corriander, orange peel, and some light malty sweetness. Finish has a light bitterness.

M - Light bodied with medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is crisp with a dry finish.

O - This was a decent Wit and a nice example of the style.

This Wit is pale yellow with a thick haze, pretty standard for the style. The head is a pure white cap half a finger tall that doesn't stand for long and leaves light spotting.
The malts are dry and it's dusty, clean though, with gentle spices and a light sweetness. The clove and light notes of white pepper I expect are here with just a touch of citrus zest.
The body is soft and light but even with a full crispness. It's smooth from beginning to end.

L - It is straw colored with a slight haze. It has about an inch of white head.

S - The obligatory orange and coriander.

T - The orange peel really stands out in this one. I get some slight bitterness in the finish.

M - Medium highly carbonated

O - This is a pretty good example of a witbier.

Orange body with a mild haze and a thin white cap. Sweet banana and clove aroma. A hint of apples with a strong wheat character. Light in body with zesty carbonation. pretty good.
