Notes/Commercial Description:
We’ve shaken up traditional tastes by brewing a spiced Belgian-style wheat ale with real orange, lemon and lime peels,and then added a little coriander spice to the mix. This uniquely-crafted and award-winning ale is unfiltered to create a brew that is naturally cloudy with a light golden color and a smooth, refreshing finish.

2.53/5  rDev -13.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Pours a cloudy, golden orange color with a white, 2-finger head. Subpar retention. The resulting lace is spotty, but shows decent stick.

Smell - Strongly smells of wheat, a touch of milkiness, and with an underlying orange character.

Taste - Starts with wheat and faint orange notes, but by mid-taste a watery cheapness creeps in, and the beer finishes like a hollow shell.

Mouthfeel - Light, near watery, with little carbonation.

Overall - What a terrible disservice to the witbier style. Most are light, but this is ridiculous! Makes Blue Moon taste like Allagash by comparison.
