Mothership Wit (Organic Wheat Beer)

22 oz bomber, $3.99 from Riverside in Chattanooga, TN, USA. Best before 6th March 2009.
Love a good Wit, but the style walks a fine line for me. There are some things that must be avoided, and other points that it must hit. I like a really spicy note, and I love a heavy yeast presence, but perhaps most importantly it must avoid a watery mouthfeel. The mouthfeel is perhaps the most crucial thing since it can make or break the deal for me.
The beer pours a typical, lemon based cloudy color but lacks a large sediment presence. Lace is good, better than normal for the style. I’d like it a bit darker, but the good head and lace make it a 4.0 for me on appearance.
Nose: some white pepper and lemon in the nose. Aroma is strong – I like it.
Spice, coriander, yeast and pepper notes ARE there, but to be honest it falls slightly short for me. Just not quite there.
Close but no cigar for me.
