I was fairly impressed considering this is a Kirkland brand beer. Just like the label describes, the beer is a nice wheat filled taste with hints of orange peel. There are many other white ales that are far better than this one. However, next time you are in the Costco alcohol section, don't write off the Kirkland brand. There are many delicious brews in this 24 pack that exceed expectation for the price of $19.

12 oz bottle served in pint glass. Best by date: June 2011. Brewed by "New Yorker Brewing Co., Utica, NY" and sold by Costco (sole vendor) in a 4/variety mix-case.

Pours a cloudy copper/amber color with a thin light tan head. Most of the head dissolves quickly but thin partial head remain that leaves little lacing.

A - spicy citrus with orange most dominant. Toasted malt and oats.

T - Substantial citrus flavor; so much that I suspect orange juice is involved. Noticable coriander. Subtle malt and grain flavors. Quite sweet -- too much sweetness, I suspect, for many beer drinkers -- but the sweetness wans rather than lingers in the finsih. More sour than bitter: IBU = 10. Pleasant mild aftertaste.

M - medium/light body with medium carbonation. Quite smooth.

Drink - easy to drink; refreshing and thirst-quenching; certainly appealing compared to many beers that do not cost more. Lacking boldness, complexity, hoppiness and other traits most beer aficianodos seek.

At $19 a case, this is a good buy ... except: only available in mix packs with 3 other varieties, some of which are likely to be far less appealing than others, depending on the particular consumer. Hence, a good case for a party. This beer apparently replaces the Hefeweisen in the variety pack; an upgrade IMO.
