A: hazy yellow/light orange pour

S: slight orange, but not much going on

T: shandy-like, witbier-like

M: thin, easy-drinking

O: I sampled 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.

I must say, I probably enjoyed this beer more than I rated it, for the style. The style isn't my favorite, and I honestly must say it is on the ugly side (appearance), but the flavors worked for me on this tasting.

A: cloudy yellow with what appears to be dirty (tan/brown) clouds of particles in it
S: fairly standard banana-tinged wheat beer
T: light banana tastes with a tart lemon backing
O: decent summer-style beer

A- pours a pale and hazy golden color with a small foamy white head that reduces quickly, leaving a small layer on top, lively carbonation bubbles shooting toward the top. Not as much head as typically expected for the style

S- light phelonic notes with some musty yeast, lemon rind with some wheat and crackery malt

T- overall, the flavors don't match up to the aromas. The belgian yeast flavors are barely detectable and there'd just a touch of lemon and coriander. Crisp wheat flavor on the finish

M- watery light body with medium carbonation, fizzy -yet-light mouthfeel with a thin finish

O- this one has the potential, but everything just seems a bit too watered down for my liking

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy dark amber color. Not much head is formed apart from a a dinky white-colored film. What little head there is doesn't retain well, either. Not particularly pleasing aesthetically.

S: This one is heavy on the wheat malt, and light on the spices. I also pick up some banana esters alongside touches of orange peel.

T: Actually, this might be the best part of the brew. It starts off with some oats and cream, before being overtaken by *very* subtle coriander in the middle. Wheat malts finish it off. Simplistic, but very refreshing.

M: Make no doubts, this one is dry. Combined with high (if slightly too coarse) carbonation, it's superbly drinkable.

O: Not very memorable. This is exactly the kind of beer that is moderately enjoyable on a hot day, yet easily forgotten. Probably wouldn't buy it again myself.
