4/5 rDev +7.5%

Sampled this a few times over the years, but never had full glass...
For a wit, the look is blandish - very pale, silky beige color, fairly hazy - scummy/pellicle-like, eggshell-white head and cap with decent sticky lacing.
A fresh scent - nice, but sort of weak - lemon-lime, peppercorns and grapefruit - not much coriander - a fair amount of malt in the balance, but it too is weak
The taste follows the aromas - grapefruit n' creme - malty (light malts) - overall, fairly distinct for the style - vague herbal (chamomile?) flavor - not tart in the least
The thing that I enjoy, but also throws me off is how creamy it is - medium-bodied, pretty soft-smooth (oats?), very nice - packs a little bubble in the finish
Manakin pis is actually pretty good - nice and light - more of a hot weather beverage, though

It has an unexpected pale yellow color and cloudiness from the high level of wheat used. The bitter orange added during brewing comes across nicely balanced. This is a good beer as a break from all the heavier winter beers while still being appropriate for the season.

A great, refreshing beer.
At first I thought it was a French beer and I was surprised as those seem hard to come by. But it is a Belgian Beer. Loved it.
The appearance of the bottle is very intriguing.
A nice, white beer. Great color.
This is the first white beer I have ever had.
Fruity smell and taste, not too strong, but not a light beer by my standards.
Loved it, would recommend to anyone interested in trying a tasty, easy to drink beer.
Something that I might otherwise look for is a stronger kick to it.

Poured from a 16.5 oz. can. Has a cloudy yellow/whiteish color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of spices, some fruits. Taste is smooth and refreshing, spices, mild fruits, highly drinkable. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall this is a solid beer
