12 oz can poured into chalice

A- Hazy pale gold. White head fizzles out pretty fast. No lacing. Quite effervescent, however.

S- This smells almost exactly like grapefruit for some reason, even though I know it's not in the beer. Orange and coriander is picked up as well.

T- The orange is very up front here. So sweet. There is no spice, and the malt character is a little grainy.

M- There isn't much feel to this. It looks effervescent, but there really isn't much carbonation. Not really a fan.

O- Like their pineapple beer, this one has way too much fruit or juice in it. This isn't really close to the Wit style at all. Did they even use a Belgian yeast strain?

Why two nearly identical Rivertownes? I guess if you've seen one you've seen them all. Remember Three Rivers and Riverfront stadiums? Identical.

Anyway, it's a decent wit. It pours with nice head and color. The can has obviously done a great job of preserving an often skunked style - this one has not a hint of that, and as a result tastes sweeter than expected. The malt dominates the fruity yeasty taste I prefer. The hops profile is appropriately very low

The aftertaste is also pretty sweet, but very clean too. Overall it is a nice example of the style, though far from the best.
