3.33/5 rDev -2.3%
Poured from 12oz bottle into Chimay goblet.
A - Hazy, pale, golden yellow with white lacey head.
S - Yeasty funk with a slight hint of peachiness. Definite sour notes.
T - Nothing distinct here. Vaguely sweet wheat with no sign of the fruit expected. Rather bland overall. Wheaty funk lingers on the palate.
M - A bit of body, light carbonation.
A summer porch beer to be certain, but lacking. Meh...

Appearance: Golden and cloudy, a very satisfying appearance for a beer made with oranges. A thick head of white foam was present but dissipated quickly.
Smell: Yeast and a slightly metallic tone initially, with a backdrop of sweet orange. Orange becomes more apparent and the metallic note disappears as the beer warms.
Taste: Sweet orange, witbier yeast notes, wheat. I was expecting more satsuma flavor here.
Mouthfeel: Crisp and light bodied, medium-high carbonation. Refreshing.
Overall: This is not the beer I was expecting, but was still fairly good. The satsuma orange didn't dominate the flavor profile like I would have liked, what is present makes the beer pleasantly refreshing.

Bottle from Bert's picked up on a whim.
Pours a light straw with a tinge of orange to it and a smallish although long lasting creamy white head. The aroma is light citrus orange and grapefruit come to mind with a spicy wheat berry thig going on and a huge yeasty presence. The flavor is light and bready with lots of wheat that is countered by the spice and citrus flavors. The finish is rather dry with a lingering spice rack. Light body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick almost watery mouthfeel. This one was ok, but a bit thin and uninteresting.

Poured into a snifter. Bottleneck says Best By 11/14/13
A- Pours a hazy dark golden color with a 1/2 inch white head that retains well before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and zigzags of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a thick ring behind on the glass.
S- Very yeasty wheat aroma with notes of orange and lemongrass.
T- Strong burst of yeasty wheat up front that gives way to a moderate sweetness and a slightly weak aftertaste. Very smooth, drinkable and flavorful. Zesty.
M- Plenty of snap with medium carbonation and a light body.
O- A very solid wheat beer that's fruity but not overly so.

Picked this up on a whim with their Strawberry Harvest too. Poured a nice color and right away noticed not much smell, just not much of anything It's an ok lighter beer but nothing stands out too much as a Witbier, no spice of any kind. Probably would buy again.
