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.

Serving type: on-tap

Probably the most I've ever paid to dump beer down the drain.
The smell is something like an old grapefruit.
They put something in this that doesn't belong in any beer called ale.
I'm choking my way through one and then hoping my wife likes it before I throw the rest out.
They could call this an alcoholic beverage, but it's not beer.

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?

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.
