look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is clear dark yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that quickly died down, leaving a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of orange peel are present in the nose.
T: Much like the smell, the taste is similar to the smell and is mostly dominated by flavors of orange peel. Slight hints of coriander are also perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but seems like it could either use less in the way of orange peels or more coriander to help balance things off.

Poured into a pint glass.

3.0 A: Hazy yellow orange color. Two fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is below average and just a wisp of lacing is left.

3.25 S: Neutral wheat, coriander, sweet orange peel. Fairly simple but pleasant.

3.25 T: Like the nose, it's simple but well enough crafted and without any real flaws. Neutral wheat, mild-moderate coriander, and mild orange peel.

3.25 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. A little less creamy than I like for the style.

3.25 D: Good enough, but it's a run of the mill wit.

orange-yellow color, ok head. Taste is very light, almost wheat-like. The flavors are subtle and I can pick up a touch of citrus on the palate. Overall, a decent beer but so light that it is hard to go into more detail. Overall, Alewerks is doing a great job !!

A: hazy yellow/light orange pour

S: slight orange, but not much going on

T: shandy-like

O: I drank White Ale at the Town Point Beer Festival in Virginia Beach. Alewerks made the trip down from Williamsburg with this one and it was fresh, foamy and refreshing.
