It beats some of the Macro Belgian Whites out there (ahem! Shock Top ahem!) but then again that doesn't speak that highly of this brew. Honestly I would drink again but I wouldn't pick it up anywhere.

Not sure what the guy below is talking about it's not a Belgium pale ale but more of a Witbeir. Mixed and matched this at the House of 1,000 beers.

A - Well it looks mildly hazy bright yellow in color with just a 1/4 inch of head that fizzes out rather quickly. Looks Dull.
S - Well it does have a distinct sourness to the nose which smells inviting not too many venture into this just making another bland Hefeweizen. Another smell opens up to more orange and coriander smells.
T - As other said really dull taste. Doesn't really venture too deep in any direction be it sour lemon, coriander spice or even orange peel taste. Heck hardly any sweetness I can't even taste any orange flavor.
M - Light and very fizzy even for the style. Still hangs heavy on the palate.

Overall very light if any Witbier flavors make this a very lackluster take on the style. Avoid.

3.33/5  rDev -1.8%

Appearance: A crystal clear light gold body showcases a constant flurry of bubbles. The white head goes from creamy to frothy in a matter of seconds, before sinking into a sad little dollop of foam. 2/3

Aroma: An intoxicating bouquet of coriander, lemon peel, grapefruit, and even some bubblegum esters. Bready, pale malt brings some balance to the smell. 11/12

Taste: Pale malt outweighs the complex fruitiness promised by the aroma. Sour lemon and spicy hops help to accentuate a lingering mild bitterness. The sparse collection of flavors fail to work in harmony. In spite of the spiciness, this is less zesty and refreshing than a preferred BPA, as well as more bitter and malty. A disappointment. 12/20

Mouthfeel: A watery quality keeps things dull, although the light carbonation manages to build and linger on the tongue and throat. Goes down light and easy. 3/5

Overall: A sweet smelling, yet ultimately sad and unimaginative Belgian Pale Ale. Not off-putting, but still one to skip. 5/10

TOTAL: 33/50

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on August 29, 2014

Pale yellow pour under a quick fizzy white head and then nothing.

Aroma of toasted breaded malts, white malts (you know that feeling), pepper, spice, and lemongrass.

Light body.

Taste: Toasted biscuit, spice and then a flush of bitterness.

12 oz bottle was poured into a nonic glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a slightly hazy golden yellow with good vision of tiny bubbles coming up through out the glass.

Smell: Bready wheat, vanilla, coriander, orange peel, noble hops, and some sweetness.

Taste: Same as above. Tart when with a slight hint of bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, crisp, refreshing, chewy, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Nice witbier from the TX boys. Been enjoying the sampler pack.
