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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A: A cloudy pale orange pour. Medium sized white head. Retention is decent and so is the lacing.

S: Tons of wheat. Lots of sweet orange and some coriander and a little pepper perhaps? Some sort of odd wet grass note is hiding in there though.

T: Sweet orange concentrate up front with lots of wheat throughout. Did I mention sweet? Maybe a touch of coriander in there. As it warms the sweet artificial orange becomes stronger and stronger, detracting from the flavor.

M: Medium bodied, fairly smooth.

O: Basically a cheap imitation of a proper witbier. Honestly it's not bad, just a bit too sweet with too much artificial orange. Having said that, if I'm going with a cheap witbier, I'd much rather have a blue moon.

I really like this Belgian White it has the appearance of what you would expect with its style smell though, threw me a little hopping for a little more citrus notes beings it is advertised on bottle, but the beer has great taste easy to drink anytime! I would buy another 6 pack of it!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: single finger white head with a little lacing on a murky golden with a slIght amber hue.

S: grain and breads. Slight amount of lemon.

T: mostly wheat and breads with a decent honey finish. Light citrus note.

M: light body and high carbonation. Crisp and refreshing.

Overall a very drinkable and nearly flavorless beer. Beats a bitter light beer when only run if the mill beers are available but still. It that great.
