look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

served from a bottle into a snifter style glass

appearance - 4.5/5 - Pours a semi-dark cloudy straw color with a 1/2 finger head. Tiny bubbles can be seen streaming up the edge of the glass.

smell - 5/5 - Strong sweet, citrusy aroma with some spices in the nose too.

taste - 5/5 - Instantly tastes like orange and coriander. Not too much and not too little and followed by a crisp zest.

mouthfeel - 5/5 - Highly carbonated and refreshing.

overall - 5/5 - A very tasty Belgian style beer that is refreshing without overt "Belgian flavor".

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a beer mug.

Appearance: Super clear pale straw color to the beer. Light carbonation, and a nearly non-existent thin head. Moderate lacing for a witbier. It is just about everything I would expect.

Smell: Wheaty, more than a touch of yeast; however, it is counterbalanced by a spicy/sweet citrus tone. The scent is very "round," is the only way I can put it. Really enticing.

Taste: Upon first sip, there is lots of citrus flavor with some hop help. As the beer fizzes out on my tongue, I am suddenly bombarded with a great deal of spice flavor: nutmeg? cinnamon? Aftertaste is all herbal/spice.

Mouthfeel: It's very chewy; a surprise considering the color characteristics. The carbonation creates a light feeling through the chewiness, and the beer rinses smoothly. Quite possibly one of the better beers I've had this year. (nyuk nyuk nyuk)

Drinkability: This is a beer even my fiancee would enjoy. The lightness combined with a flavor-craver approach make for an awesome brew. And at just a hair over 5% ABV, you can have more than one! (This is not the case with a lot of Avery's brews ;-) )

Peace.

It's 105 degrees today in Tulsa! Avery White Rascal is refreshing when it is 105. Well, its always refreshing.

The White Rascal pours a light straw color with a nice thin head that is maintained by the little bubbles through the duration.

As soon as you dip your nose into the glass you know you have hit the perfect Belgian Wit. Bready, Yeast, and Spice. It is enough to keep you satisfied alone.

The taste is only complimented by the smell. The bread and yeast coat your tongue and the orange peel and coriander do a Rascaly little dance on your the way down. A perfect balance.

Only when you swirl it around your mouth do you notice that it is over 5% abv. And those tiny bubbles that sustain the head are there as well to flow right over your palette and promote those spices. It is wonderful soft feeling.

And like I said, its hot outside and I feel like my 6-pack might be fearful for its future in the fridge. Extremely drinkable.

Take off you knobs,
Brews Brother

I have a strong feeling this bottle is expired..

Appearance - Pours a very pale golden/orange color with a pretty small head that dissipates quickly. But like I said, it may be expired.

Smell - The first thing I smell is orange zest and maybe banana. Wheat and some other spices.

Taste - Very strong flavors of coriander and maybe some clove.. I can also taste a citrusy-orange flavor. Slightly bitter.

Mouthfeel - Kind of thick with wedium carbonation.

Overall - This is one of my favorite beers.

From a can (I know, heresy) obtained from a 6 pack at QFC in University Village near UW campus. Aroma is very sweet. Banana, citrus, gum, and very delicate. Very inviting a pleasant. Appears bright, but translucent. If you mixed orange juice with pineapple juice, I feel like that’s what this looks like. One to two fingers of white head. Tastes like sweet, fruity citrus. Pineapple, banana, coconut, plenty of other tropical fruits. It’s not overly citrusy or carbonated, it really has an incredible balance. It might be too sweet for the average beer drinker, but it’s just right for me. Palate has a perfect balance as well. Good carbonation, no bad residual flavors, goes down smooth. I can’t think of anything else I would ask for. Overall, this is one of the few beers that I feel comfortable buying a sixer of. It seems like no matter what mood I am in, I could be in the mood for this. This beer is what turned me on to Avery, and now I know I won’t go wrong with picking up any of their high brow stuff.

First impression of this beer made me skeptical, most likely caused by the label . It was purchased among two BYO 6-packs from whole foods.Long story short, this clean refreshing light bodied beer is by far the best Belgium white wheat i've enjoyed.

Another beer that was relatively hard to find in my area, but I am glad that I was finally able to find two remaining six-packs in a nearby store... Appearance-wise, pours a nice amber color that is appealing but doesn't give much of a frothy head that I've come to see from a lot of witbiers... not as cloudy or murky as some I've encountered, but the smell is great, reminiscent of coriander, wheat and citrus. The taste truly complements the aroma, with a nice spicing of citrus and a slightly pepperish flavor that goes down very easily and smoothly... A great beer that I could drink plenty of and still be satisifed... worth looking for and definitely recommended...
