look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.

Serving type: on-tap

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

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

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.
