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.

This was a 22oz. bomber I found at Evergreen Liquors in Frederick.

Look: Poured gently to avoid sediment. The beer poured a hazy yellow color with crazy carbonation bubbles that charged upward to form a thin cap of white foam. Zero lacing. Could almost pass for fizzy fruit juice.

Smell: Light fruity aroma. Some faint Belgian funk. Also some biscuit. Nothing too pungent or complex in the nose.

Taste: First was a crisp juicy note with a very clean middle. Some biscuit took over during the finish. Aftertaste was mainly clean with the biscuit returning for a brief moment.

This beer was basically your typical cheap quasi-craft offering from a large brewing corporation. I would drink it again if handed one. I even tried pouring all the sediment in which really made no difference at all. It's just a very plain Witbier.

Decent summer wheat in a pinch if there is nothing better on tap at your local pub. Two finger white well retained head on a hazy yellow body, good retention and lace. Scent and taste is wheat and orange peel with some coriander. Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. Not bad.

3.45/5  rDev +16.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a hazy orange/yellow color with a billowy white head. The head faded relatively quickly giving way to a small amount of lacing.

Smell – The smell is largely of lemon mixed with some nice orange, yeast and wheat aromas mixed in.

Taste – The taste of a nice wheat backbone mixed with some strong sweet citrus flavors. The citrus is largely orange in nature with a sweeter taste. Toward the middle some yeasty and more bitter lemon flavors work their way into the taste. These help balance some of the sweet and take the flavor profile to the end.

Mouthfeel – The mouthfeel is rather average. It has a medium body and an average carbonation level.

Overall – Easy drinking and affordable. It has some nice characteristics and makes for a good session brew.
