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

Serving bottle poured in to a tulip glass.

A - Pours hazy golden with a one finger white head which starts to fade to strong lacing after a few minutes.

S - Very nice! Citrusy with lemon, orange and a bit of pine pushing through.

T - Orange with lemon with a bit of grass backing. Tangy and slightly bitter on the aftertaste.

M - Super light and fluffy. Carbonation is a little higher during sips than it needs to be but it is not problematic.

O - A good choice for a refreshing drink! Nothing in it was off putting to me and, in general, I don't much like orange. This would be a fantastic summer time brew.

A-Hazy yellow orange, not much carbonation or head.

S-Wheat, lemon, orange, some grass. A more citrusy witbier.

T-Starts off with wheat, spice, orange and lemon but the finish has this off flavor that throws off the balance.

M-Medium bodied, some carbonation.

O-I can't place the off flavor in the finish but it threw everything off.

I bought this one because I had no idea what a satsuma was. The apperance is a nice fuzzy orange color that is hazy. The smell is vague hops with a strange bitter smell that was off to me. Sweet taste but then melllows to quick to a earthy bitter that doesn't mix well. Aftertaste is decent but nothing amazing. Just not impressed but I want to try a satsuma to see how Mich flavor was in it

A- A crisp white head tops a cloudy orange cream colored beer. There is quite a bit of sediment still left in the bottle with was then transferred into the glass. This gives it the appearance of a lighter colored fresh squeezed orange juice with a few bits of seed floating in it.

S- citrus and light clove up front. It also has that classic funk aroma that I find in alot of witbiers.

T- on the tip of the tongue is the burst of citrus while the mellow bitters work their magic along the sides of it. The funk of the orange peel/pith is defined in the long finish of this beer.

M- Well carbonated and crisp.

O- This is an ok beer, but nothing worth bragging about.

Abita Satsuma Harvest Wit has a very thick, frothy, white head, a semi-clear, golden appearance, with streaming bubbles, lots of suspended tan particles, a descending yellow-gray cloud, and a fair amount of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of coriander and white wheat bread, and the taste is of those two elements, plus sugar, satsuma, a touch of bitterness, and a slight orange peel note. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Abita Satsuma Harvest Wit finishes semi-dry, easy going, and drinkable. Overall, this is very good.
