First beer at the end of a long road trip.
Attempted to convert a Blue Moon drinker with this, with some success. They liked it, but thought it could use an orange. It was tame enough that I tended to agree...
The beer poured a pale opaque straw color, just about right for a Wit. It was murky, and unfortunately didn't produce much of a head. Foam was white and left spotty bubbles on the glass.
Aroma was fairly subdued, but there were hints of wheat and citrus, which was good. It could have benefitted from more citrus to really whet the appetite.
Tasted of wheat, some light breadiness with low level citrus accents in the back. Fairly easygoing and thirst quenching. Body was a little bit thin, but passable. This would work outdoors in the summer, it's a fairly utilitarian Witbier.

3.89/5 rDev +10.5%

Pours clear and pale gold with a white head. A relatively quick fade leave a bit of lace. Smell lovely with melon and light bubble gum notes. A light bit of wheat and yeast. Taste is bang on with a wheat graininess and Belgian wit level of of fruitiness. A touch of hefe like banana and clove subtly flowing. Bubble gum with sweet light malt. Finish is crisp and mild characterized by a lemony zestiness. Smooth carbonation and lighter body make this a superb summer quaffer. This is the ultimate lawn mower beer and stands head and shoulders above the usual fare. Low abv makes this a no brainer when you are busy and thirsty.

3/5 rDev -14.8%

Serving Type - Bottle
Appearance - Straw yellow with minimal head and lacing.
Smell - Wheat, minor hop aroma, Some yeasts and spices. Rather light on the nose.
Taste - First sip is wheat with some minor floral fruits and a little orange, lemon and coriander spice flavor. A little bready and grainy but not much else going on.
Mouthfeel - Very light, tongue gets wheat, some fruits, palate gets spices, some sugars and grainy/bready malts. Aftertaste is a bit watery and wheat influenced.
Overall - Rather weak and bland. Super easy to drink but minimal flavors, combined with the expensive price tag, this is nothing id ever buy again, nor really care to drink again.
