Manneken Pis pours pale cloudy straw with a hefty 3” finely bubbled pure white foam cap. The nose is bready and spicy with orange peel and citrus notes. It has a very creamy palate with white bread, orange, citrus and spice up front and finishing with a refreshing tartness. Light bodied and effervescent.

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)

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Veiled pure golden color. Extra foamy 3 finger white head lasting 3 minutes. Tons of activity.

Fresh sweet aromas and flavors of lemon, fruits, and wheat. Very well balanced salivating taste with a citrus feel.

Light slick body with a fresh crisp zesty feel. Perfect short and faint sweet and spicy finish.

Overall : One of my favorite Witbier, perfect while eating.
