    [Suggested Glassware: Weizen Glass]

    The pour was a cloudy medium yellow with a small (less than 1 finger) white bubbly head that quickly diminished, down to a lightly scattered film and small collar which did eventually disappear with poor spotty lacing.

    The aroma was mild with a grain malt and a light soapy yeast with a hint of citrus (lemon and orange), a touch of coriander and a mild note of pepper.

    The taste was lightly citrusy throughout with a decent wheat presence stepping up only to be slightly overshadowed by a somewhat bold spiciness at the end. The flavor hung on for a good while after the swallow, with a citrusy and mildly peppery taste that was left to linger at the back of the throat.

    Mouthfeel was light in body with a moderately dry texture and an almost prickly carbonation.

    Overall this was a zesty tasting Witbier with lots of citrus flavor upfront and a yeasty spicy taste that relaxed on the taste buds at the finish...

    Very refreshing and very white in appearance. Lots of citrus and spicy flavors that come together smoothly. Great example of the style, this is what I think of when Belgian white is mentioned.
