3.15/5  rDev -15.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served in a snifter.

A: Foggy yellow. Thin, slightly off-white head disappears into the ether.

S: Coriander and citrus. Pretty much what you'd expect.

T: Wheat, coriander and orange peel.

M: Medium/light-bodied. Sticks to your mouth.

O: Not bad. Pretty much what I'd expect from a witbier. If you're at Burlington's American Flatbread and in the mood for a wit, go for it. They do have better options though.

Served on-tap at the brewery in a 12oz snifter

Pours a straw yellow color with a hazy body, a decent white head

The nose is bready, light, with hints of spice (coriander mostly), orange and lemon zest

Really nice, the wheat and yeast are present, the coriander and citrus are the most present.

Well carbonated and crisp, the light to medium bodied.

Drinkability is great, especially in the heat.

The Belgian Style witbier was sampled on tap on a hot ass day at the bar when I was hiding from the heat with Diora (thanks kitten!). Poured a cloudy banana yellow hue with a thin dough colored head one finger thick. Little lacing but good retention. The nose had a little too much yeast for my preference but coriander and orange were par for the course. To my tongue the taste was very spicy, coriander and cloves with dry wheat giving it a tart character and some citrus behind it. Misappropriated perhaps but all of the witbier tastes dually represented. Still, not enough malt or hops to give it depth. Long finish adds to the medium body. Decent, but not much more given the plethora of Belgian Whites now available even in the state.

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

Color: Pours a light, hazy yellowish-white color with a thin one-finger head.

Aroma: Light with a hint of coriander and orange peel. Seems like a straightforward witbier.

Taste: Light and smooth. Bready. Coriander dominates with a decent amount of wheat present. Very refreshing.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and light.

Drinkability: Very drinkable, especially today with temperature of 85 degrees.

Served in a pint glass.

Pours a cloudy yellow color with orange hues and a one finger white head that dissipates quickly leaving light lacing. Fresh wheat aromas combine with cloves and light banana. Up front flavors of wheat and lemon lead to banana, cloves and coriander with an orange citrusy finish. Highly carbonated, light bodied, this beer coats and cleanses the mouth. Clean, crisp & refreshing, great drinkability, an all night beer.
