Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into pint glass. A: Clear, golden yellow. Some effervescence moving up the glass, a few bubbles at the top of the beer but no head and almost no lacing. S: Orange peel. Mild sweetness. I tried getting the coriander but I couldn't. Slight bit of malt. No hops. T: The taste pretty much follows the nose. Lots of orange, lots of sweetness. No hops at all. No bitterness for most of the drink. There is a very mild bitterness toward the bottom of the glass, but not much. M: Light bodied. Good carbonation. Very refreshing mouthfeel. O: This is not a bad beer, although there's not much happening with it. I would not pay for it again - especially at 8 bucks a sixer. However, if it was offered to be at a party or BBQ, I wouldn't refuse it. As a beer goes, it's rather boring. This is the first Belgian white I've ever had, so I can't rate it based on the style. If this is what the style usually is then I probably won't be a witbier drinker. I would have preferred a little hops. I think a beer needs some bitterness to make it a beer, even if it's just a little. On the other hand, as an all-around cold drink on a hot day, I certainly would not pass it up.
