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.

A - very light in color and lots of carbonation - a lot as in too much.
S. a bit of citrus, coriander, wheat
t. For all that is going on with the smell, the taste is a bit weak. Tried to liven it up with an orange, and after squeezing in a good amount, the taste did improve - but hard to give credit with the amount of doctoring that had to be done.
m - thin, over carbonated
Overall - The beer is average or slightly above average. Too many good whites to go back to this beer again.
