|"Pours a cloudy dirty blonde beer with a great creamy foam white lace that eventually settles into a patchy laced head with sticky trails along its path of rest. Smell is rather clean and soft with a yeasty edge, faint spice (coriander, white pepper), hint of grassy lemon and orange.
"Very smooth and silky body and mouthfeel. A bit rough around the edges with musty yeast, grain notes, a sparking mineral/seltzer water fizz and flavour and orange peel/rind bitterness. Fruity apricot flavour works itself out and blends in with the malt sweetness, followed by a mixed bag of spices follows which really embeds its flavours deep into the palate where it stays to the end — herbally, white pepper. Malts are semi-sweet and show off more in the body. Bitterness comes in the form of a lemony grass flavour, it's a bit sharp, tangy. Yeast and grain flavours in the finish. A very traditional Belgian-style witbier. All the flavours and characteristics are pretty damn spot-on for a US-made brew. One of New England's greats." —Todd Alström, BeerAdvocate
