Appearance: Light gold, cloudy, nice head, nice carb
Smell: Prominent zesty odors, smells fresh and clean
Taste: Nice orange taste upfront and through the finish
Mouthfeel: Nicely carbonated, clean and refreshing with slight lingering of zest
Drinkability: Too light to be a wit more like an unfiltered lager. Overall a nice beer

Spied this Orange Avenue Wit in the clearance bin at the local DM, and in true to myself fashion I had to both get it and make a silly pun referencing the name in the review: let's hope it's a full Wit and not a half Wit... yes I'm bad.

Poured from a 355ml bottle into a nonic pint.

A: Looks the part, very Wit-like cloudy orange body and a frothy white 1cm head, neato.

S: Wrong, wrong, wrong. Don't know if this has been light-struck or if it's supposed to smell like this but there is a funky cross between coriander and coconut going on that is just plain off-setting. The aroma is more like women's coconut hand moisturiser from bodyshop than a beer.

T: Even worse is the flavour - I'm convinced this is a light-struck beer, no one would want a Wit that tastes like this; funky coriander, bitter orange, slight yeast sour note with a smattering of spices that jar (cardamom, five spice) this brew and make it taste neither refreshing or moreish.

M: Flat and mid to light bodied.

D: Not sure if I had damaged goods but I hope for the sake of the brewer it was. I have rated this accordingly and will ne'er touch this beer with a 10 foot barge pole... helps that I don't own a barge pole, or a barge for that matter.

Food match: Don't drink this beer unless you are eating food with ghost chillies and need cold liquid handy and this is the only thing that is available in a 50 mile vicinity.

Pours a half-finger head - pale gold (or dark straw) body.

Yeast driven driven aromas - with some old socks thrown in. Orange in the mix.

Taste is very yeast driven, some orange, wheat, bready malts.

Mouthfeel OK and crsip. Nicely carbonated.

All in all - one wonders why Dannos chose this beer to bring in to Aus? Not bad, but not not great.
