Ratings are correct below, but I changed some marks above to make the final rating as correct as possible with Beer Advocate's "revamped" system. The 3.94 overall rating is correct.

Type: 11.2-oz. bottle
Glass: Manzanita pint glass
From: Albertsons in Alpine, Calif.
Price: $1.67 ($9.99 for a mix 6-pack)
Purchased: Jan. 2, 2015
Consumed: Jan. 3, 2015
Misc.: Best before May 10, 2015 at 6:43 p.m.

Poured a golden, yellow, clear color with two fingers of frothy, white head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Poor, wet lacing along the sides of the glass. Above average retention. (Sight - 3.88)

Smelled coriander, tangerine, caramel, orange zest, honey, Citra vitamin C heavy, wheat and lemon grass. (Smell - 3.75)

Nice initial taste, more sourness than the nose. Coriander, green grapes, faint green apple, caramel, tangerine, Citra zest, honey, lemon grass, oranges, nectarine and orange floss. (Taste - 4.00)

Light body. Thin-to-oily texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Abrupt, fruiting finish. (Feel - 4.00)

Just a really good Witbier. I feel like I underrated it a tad. I’d have it again for sure. (Overall - 4.00)

1st bottle...

Look : Golden cloudy, slightly clear, foamy, tons of bubbles.

Smell : Lemony and sweet.

Taste : Well balanced flavors, not aggressive, lemony and slightly sweet making me salivate.

Feel : Light, carbonated, crisp, fresh.

Overall : One of my favorite white beer, great while eating.

330ml bottle, chilled and poured into a Troubadour tulip glass

Look: Pours a cloudy, straw yellow with a couple of fingers of white head. Good head retention, very little in the way of lacing. Typical witbier.

Smell: Again, a typical witbier - fairly citrusy smell with just a little hint of spiciness, although the latter isn't particularly noticeable. The citrus notes are more towards toe orange end of the scale rather than lemon.

Taste: follows the smell, pretty much, although the spiciness is rather more evident in the after taste and there's a certain amount of wheatiness too. There's a citrus tartness there, so it's actually pretty refreshing.

Feel: Despite the colour (and the image on the bottle ;-) ) there's actually a bit of body there - enough carbonation to give it a bit of zing without being stupidly fizzy. Fairly smooth finish.

Overall: As Belgian witbiers go, you could do a lot worse than this - although I like Hoegaarden and its ilk, this just seems to be a cut above them. Would be a go-to witbier if it were more readily available, and I'd certainly have no hesitation about having it on tap.
