Very easy to drink but I don't search it out. My wife loves it though!

Truncated notes; my apologies:

Pours a finger-wide cap of white colour, which recedes within 4-5 minutes, leaving light lacing. Body colour is a surprisingly clear yellow-copper; why isn't this cloudy?

Smells of wheat, Belgian pale malts, and citrusy esters. No off-notes are detectable.

Has a simple wheat base with clean estery notes and a hint of banana. Lemon peel does make an appearance. The Belgian yeast is nice. It's estery for a witbier. It's balanced albeit simple, and doesn't have much in terms of subtlety. I like it, but there's plenty of room for more complexity and intricacy.

Mouthfeel is clean, smooth, crisp, refreshing, and wet, but not incredible. It suits the taste fine but doesn't elevate the beer as a whole.

This is a drinkable witbier from Victory which will scratch your itch for the style but won't impress. I'm glad this's widely available and affordable, but it's not amongst the best in the style. I wouldn't mind seeing it in a variety box in the future, but I wouldn't buy it specifically again in 6 pack form or anything. Fairly pedestrian, but definitely above average.

C+
