Silver 12 ounce can with black labeling and printing. Filled on 4/4/14...the quads are wild! On to the beer:
The yellow looks as though some of it has been washed out, while the cloudiness level is on the mark per style. Topping it is a short head with drops to a soapy white lace. It has a pleasing aroma, quick off its feet and refreshing. Orange peel, coriander, a light creamy sweetness of oats....it's all here.
A refreshing taste while holding some intensity, Saint Archer delivers. The orange zest hints, and the spicy aspect comes out stronger. I can sense a dose of hops working into the profile, bringing a grassy and earthy aspect. The end is a just a wee more sharp than I'd like; sand it a little and this could be San Diegan Hoegaarden (not in an insulting way).
San Diego could use more witbier options. Why not Saint Archer?

12 oz. single silver can from Trader Joe's poured into a globe glass. This white ale pours a light pale wheat with a thin cap of foam. Light haze shows an odd greenish hue to it.
Smell of light wheat and a hint of spice yet light and reaching. A good spin offers up a five second window of rich aroma components before falling back to a steady but subtle yeast character. Slight sweetness on the finish accompanies a steady flavor and feel.
Nice wit without the confusion of too much added spice. Simple yet straightforword with a good wheat/yeast balance. Yet touch thin at times but worth a visit.

Had a pint of this at The Fish Market across from the Del Mar racetrack. The beverage was delivered in a standard pint glass and was a straw yellow with the distinct whitbeir haze. My first taste reminded me of a Erdinger Weiss Bier...a compliment for a SoCa brewer! Nice malty mouthfeel, but not overly heavy. It really complemented the swordfish tacos nicely. Overall a very good offering from Saint Archer.

Cloudy pale yellowish color with a fine-grained foam in the big mug. Sudsy mouthfeel is quite pleasant. Light body. Crisp and tangy, but with a mellow malty base. There is a little coriander, but overall the spice is restrained and adds to the refreshing drinkability. A little bit of sweetness is also welcome, though it sticks to the Witbier side.
This is actually one of the better American-style Wits I've tasted. I have wondered if St. Archer had a reason to exist, but this proves there is life beyond the Blonde. On tap at Queenstown in San Diego.

Poured this beer out of a 12 oz can. The beer presents itself a nice, straw yellow with the characteristic yeasty haze. There isn’t much of a head on the beer. There is a strong orange aroma that melds well with a pleasant wheat malt note and just a touch of coriander. The taste is strong wheat malt with a more subdued orange flavor than the nose suggested. There is a strange bitterness in the aftertaste that I didn’t particularly care for. Overall, a decent take on the style.

Pours a murky light yellow-orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, citrus, spice, and herb aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour citrus and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is refreshing and easy to drink.
