Pours hazy orange-yellow with a white head. Some lacing is left behind. Some bubbles can be seen rising from the bottom of the glass. I detect wheat malt, barley malt, coriander, and orange in the aroma. The expression of the Pilsner malt, wheat malt, and oats in this beer brings a lot of breadiness to the flavor. The coriander and orange are also there, but the citrus is more subdued. The body is light to medium with moderate carbonation. The finish is crisp and clean. The drinkability is high. This is a good beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

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
