12 oz. can poured into a snifter (canned on 6/12/13)

I was in FL on vacation, so I picked up all the CCB beers I could find, regardless of style.

A: Nice hazy/cloudy grayish blonde that deposited a bunch of bubbles on the sides of the glass when I poured it. Lots of bubble can be seen popping up on the surface.

S: A bit of sour funk, with a hint of tartness.

T: It is hard to distinguish a lot of flavors with all of the strong carbonation that just swirls around your palate and is very distracting. Lots of wheaty flavors that are very slightly tart and funky, quite yeasty.

M: Extremely carbonated and crisp. Lots of little bubble pinpricks are felt.

O: I don't think I am a fan of this style. The carbonation is a bit strong for me and not a big fan of the flavors.

Can poured into a dogfish spiegelau glass. Canned on 2/20/14

Looks a clouded pale golden honey. Smells of coriander, orange, spice and heavy wheat. Not a huge witbier guy but this smells yummy. Taste is sweet and very smooth, lots of balance with the citrus and spice. CCB has done it again!

Date: 4/2/14
Location: Half a Time Poughkeepsie
Glassware: Tulip
Appearance: Pale yellow in color. Hazy with low carbonation. Pours with a large head
Aromatics: There is a large amount of wheat with the biscuity smell from the Belgian yeast. Orange and coriander.
Flavor: There is a lot of fruit at the start oranges lemons and even a little lime. The middle hits with coriander and the end is biscuity. The mouthfeel is fairly smooth but all the flavors are a little watered down and dull.

White Ale brewed with curacao peel and coriander. Canned by Cigar City Brewing (not "brewed and canned by…"?), LLC, Tampa, FL. Drink fresh! Do not age! Pour gently into a glass.
Good idea, think I will…

Clouded, pale yellow coloring. Nice white head, slips down to nil.

Aroma: There it is, citrus and spice and wheat. Note perfect witbier nose.

Taste: Smooth, sweet, lightly hoppy, turning dry in the end. Light bodied, crisp, refreshing, comforting. Orange and lemon flavors match beautiful with the spice and roll off the tongue with the wheat. Tastes just like a wit should.
