APPEARANCE: At the moment my stop watch say about 4 minutes and 15 seconds, I started running it about three minutes after I poured this glass of White Rascal and most of the head is still intact. So yeah, the head retention is pretty decent. It is a creamy, white head and it crowns a pale, yellow and hazy beer that has thousands of bubbles darting from the bottom to the top.
SMELL: The magnificent head retention has also allowed for excellent aroma retention. Even now, a good eight minutes after I initially poured this beer, it is still giving off a pretty solid aroma of lemon zest and a mild funk. There are also some tropical fruits lingering in this one.
TASTE: OK, stop watch is at eight minutes now and the head has finally settled into a cap that resembles the thickness of a beer coaster, so it's time to take a sip. The flavor is not as intense as the nose, but that's alright for this Witbier. Of course there is lemon and plenty of tropical fruit, but there also seems to be a hint of coconut to round it out. It's a pleasant and sweet taste that is contrasted just a touch by a mild funky earthiness.
MOUTHFEEL: Smooth and creamy, this light bodied beer is pretty sweet. The carbonation is low, providing just a faint tickle of the palate.
OVERALL: This is a very accessible beer. This is the kind of beer that people who don't like beer say "Oh, but I do like that one" about. That is not to say it cannot be appreciated by a BAer. No, it isn't my first choice, but it is a nice change of pace from the intensity that I typically seek in my brews. On the sweeter side, but well crafted and highly drinkable.

look: 2 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
Appearance: A hazy straw color. No head retention or lacing. Not a very attractive beer at all.
Nose: Banana, clove, and spice. A tiny bit of lemon.
Taste: Same as the nose but with some crispy mouthfeel. A bit more lemon in the taste.
Taste: A very popular beer, and good in terms of style adaptation.
