2.03/5 rDev -44.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5
appearance: Kind of orangey, caramelly colored. The meniscus of the liquid lacked any real effervescence or character otherwise. Just a very average looking still liquid.
aroma: Little to speak of. I'd like to say I could smell citrus notes in this, or coriander, or something, but it really doesn't waft very well.
taste: Above all, it tastes like there is a lot of unused malt in the bottle. There are hops, but the malt flavor borders on syrupiness.
mouthfeel: Bland, little carbonation, but also little body. This has a dry or particulate feel - really noticeable if you run your tongue over your teeth.
overall: This is a thin beer, and barely a Witbier. I expect either effervescence or body, and since there is so little carbonation, something needs to make up for it, but doesn't. The flavor leaves a strong sugary aftertaste - that bitter/tart on the back of the tongue - which to my palate is offputting. Honestly, a Blue Moon on tap is a lot better than this.
Serving type: bottle
