Bright yellow golden in color with a big foamy head. The aroma is of orange peel and coriander. The beer is almost spot on wit style with great wheat character and plenty of the accompanying spices including just a suggestion of grains of paradise. The fact that this wit is so fresh and so lively it out shines some of most classic examples such as Hoegaarden and Des Roc Blanch Double. The only thing I can say on the down side is it does not seem like they used any unmalted wheat (which is indicative of the style) to make it more tart and a touch cloudy. Then again, in their defense a cloudy tart beer may take many people aback, present company excluded.
