12oz can into miller lite pint glass

Appearance is a clear straw yellow with a white head that stays around quite long for the style. Tons of citrus rind in the smell and some wheat light/dry notes. Taste is again orange rindy and wheaty with some hints of yeast, finishes with a light spiciness (from the hops or coriander?). No off notes. Mouthfeel is light body and medium/high carb and some dryness (not much for the style).. Very easy to drink

An interesting with that leans heavily towards the orange rind instead of the yeast and spice. Very well suited for warm weather drinking. Nice to see a light beer like this pulled off with no off notes that are so easy to come out in these light beers. Nothing wrong with this one, I just prefer the yeasty/spicy wits.

A - pours bright yellow with a big, dense, white head that has good retention.

S - heavy lemon zest, faint straw

T - straw, coriander, orange peel, lemon zest

M - light to medium bodied, smooth, very crisp

This is a light, easy to drink beer. It has a heavy citrusy character and the carbonation is a bit heavy, but overall it's not bad.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass.
Aroma- Malt, wheat and maybe coriander. Nice aroma.
Appearance- A pale yellow color with a small white head.
Taste- The wheat and citrus is present along with (?) coriander
Palate- This is a light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. It has a flavor and texture made for the warmer months.
Overall- A pretty good Witbier that I recommend and i would drink again.

Served from tap in to a shaker. Poured a hazy pale golden yellow with a one finger pure white head that subsided to a half finger amount slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wheat, grain, earth, and subtle spice. The flavor was of sweet malt, earth, wheat, grain, and very subtle fruit. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. For the style this one wasn't too bad with all of the usual aspects o e would expect, but sadly it didn't really do much more than that for me. It could have used a little more of a sweet profile to help balance out the earthy notes going one. Still not too bad for a nice sunny day out.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a whiteish/yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of spices, some citrus. Taste is crisp, spices, wheat, lemons, mild but very refreshing and easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

A new one for me, not really sure how long this one had been out, but looked like a nice was to start off the night. Served in a pint glass, and consumed on 02/09/2010.
The pour was good for the style. Very light, pale golden in color with a good bit of visible carbonation that could be seen streaming up toward the surface of the glass. Really nice little head of white foam forms on top and settles down gently into a great little head. Aroma is very light, very bright with a nice touch of lemon and citrus on the nose. Light, very bright, crisp and clean feel here. Almost sparkling at times. Very, very light. Flavor fades quickly on me though as light grains, and a light touch of citrus are really all that remains after just a few moments and the very light and dry final sips seem to pull it all together quite nicely.
Overall while not being the most terribly interesting thing in the world, it was enjoyable and the purpose and follow through were both definitely there. I could see myself having this one a couple times on a warm day.
