3.55/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Bottle: standard 355mL brown bottle, interesting label.

Appearance: pours a hazy orange colour with a fluffy head that drops fairly quickly to a one-finger off-white.

Aroma: almost an overabundance of wheat, with plenty of citric backing, obviously. The orange smells more of natural orange peel rather than the usually more artificial orange syrup that one sees in many of these types of beers.

Taste: a combination of those strong wheat and orange peel flavours with some lighter spice and bread malt backing. Not unpleasant at all.

Aftertaste: lingers nicely, a hint of citric hop bitterness comes through also. A good, refreshing wit.

Mouth feel: light in body with plenty of carbonation - a very easy drinking beer. The carbonation carries the flavour well without being 'lumpy' like some lagers, for instance.

Overall: this is a pretty good witbier. The addition of the orange doesn't detract from the wheat, as the wheat seems to have been 'turned up' to compensate. Also the non-artificial nature of the orange really impresses.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

poured into glass nice hazy color typical for the class, average head.

Very nice aroma typical citrus and some yest/bready scents .

Taste was good well balanced maybe just a tad sweet on the back end but pleasant and refreshing would prefer just a bit more bold. Goes very good with a meal but probably not just for drinking without food.

I would probably drink again but would not go out and specifically seek this out all in all above average but no WOW factor.

Cheers

I was anxious to try this as a fan of the style and a recent resident of San Diego County. It pours a nice orange, but the head is not impressive and quickly dissipates. The aroma is a bit weak with mostly honey and faint hints of citrus. The taste follows the aroma, but I think the honey sweetness is a bit overpowering. Overall the beer is not bad, but not great; however, I would drink it again. Despite an underwhelming taste, it was quite refreshing.
