Sampling a cellar temp can poured into a pint glass. The beer pours a bright clear gold hue until the very last drops which add just a bit of haze to the beer. I get a fizzy bleached white head of 2 cm that foams up and fades instantly to a thin surface layer.
Aroma is noticeable from the can opening with citrus notes and a bit of yeasty bread. I also get some cloves and coriander with a nice wheaty twang mixed in for good measure. Nice nose on this brew.
First sip reveals a light crisp body with fine tingly carbonation. Very easy to drink and no hints of ABV, which works for such a low alcohol beer.
Flavor is twangy and almost a little tart but also similar to the nose. I get yeasty bread and some coriander with a general fruity sweetness that rolls to a very dry finish.
This is a great beer for a hot day, or for writing up a beer column, as I am currently doing. I would buy this beer for poolside or beach adventures if it was available to me.

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.

White Zombie is a solid witbeer. It pours a slightly hazy yellow with white head and no lace. The scent carries hints of bread and touch of citrus. The taste is evenly balanced and sessinable. It isn't as potent as some wits....which I like the subtly. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its quite nice.

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.
