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.

22oz bottle split and poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a bright golden yellow with a 1 finger dense white head. Mostly opaque so you can only see a little bit of carbonation. A few spots of lacing.

S: Actually not as much orange to the nose as I thought there would be. Just a little hint along with some yeast.

T: Mostly a semi-fake orange with an attempt at a yeast kick. Fairly bland. Gets a little bonus because its not offensive.

M: Has moderate carbonation, sort of a thin light body.

Overall a beer for people who dont know much about craft and mistake this flavor for being good beer taste.

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.
