Kirkland's Signature series Belgian Style White Ale, available in a mixed pack at Costco, begins with an aroma that is immediately reminiscent of orange peels and freshly-baked yeasty Italian baguettes, and left me craving hot buttered toast.

On the tongue, the orange peel and coriander notes are front and center, accompanied by the yeasty buttered baguette notes, leaving no doubt that this is a witbier. Good smatterings of wheaty cereals and biscuits ride beneath the citrus notes, and just at the edges of perception, a thin rind of grapefruit hops waves in the wind. But the focus is on the orange peel and coriander, and while these notes can be a little overpowering--as if additives were used to bolster a weaker underlying recipe--they do stay strong throughout the mouthful, and are quite delicious. The aftertaste is more of the same, but does benefit from a slightly stronger presence of hops. Mouthfeel is medium-light, and carbonation is medium to medium-strong.

Overall, the flavors in here are good, and are certainly far better than I was expecting, given the cheapness of the case ($18 for 24 bottles). Again, I do get the feeling that without the orange and coriander, this would be a weak beverage. However, as it is, this beer makes perfect hot summer fare--I speak from experience--and is a great value for what you get.

My house on July 13, 2012. Bottle into pint glass. About one finger of head, which dissipated almost immediately. Flat out caramel color. Light lacing on the sides. No retention. Lots of bubbles.

Smelled caramel, toffee and candy sugary sweets. Seemed to be light cocoa notes as well. Also wheat and grass.

Tasted like the toned-down smell. Got the same caramel, toffee and sugary candy notes.

Light-to-medium body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Normal finish. Somewhat refreshing.

Surprisingly a good beer, despite me drinking it not as cold as it could have been. Not what I would call a Belgian White, but it hit the spot.

This poured out as a nice looking hazy golden color. It had a decent white head on top. The nose was of oranges, some light spice and wheat. The taste of the beer has a pretty good balance of citrus and spice upfront that settled into a clean soft wheat flavor. The mouthfeel was smooth, lightly carbonated. Overall this was a pretty refreshing brew. I could see myself drinking a few more of these.
