3.45/5 rDev -6.5%
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
A: Dull straw yellow with a good amount of haze. Creamy white head settles into a thin wispy cap. Small dots of lacing.
S: Wheaty, whiff or citrus (orange), subtle peppery scent, doughy yeast. A little bland and muted.
T: Thin wheaty impression. Orange peel. Peppery coriander and black pepper. Oily and herbal hops punch through. A bit pithy too. Doughy yeast toward the back. Doughy and peppery finish with traces of pithy hops.
M: Light bodied. Creamy, wheaty feel. Light tingling carbonation. It does not feel full and frothy enough; it comes across a bit watery in the end.
O: Just an ok take on the style. There are no serious flaws, though the body could use some more substance. It just comes off as bland. A very middle of the pack offering.

12 oz bottle. Pours light golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy, white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of wheat malt, yeast, banana, citrus and spices. Body is medium and smooth. Wheat malt, spices, candy sugar, banana fill the mouth. Finish is medium, semi-dry.
Taste more like Hefe than Wit.

Poured from a 12 FL. OZ. bottle into a pint glass. ENJOY BY: 09 MAY 2015.
Appearance: Pours a slightly cloudy pale body with an almost non-existent head. Nice carbonation.
Smell: Sweet pale malt and tart/funky/sour aroma from the Belgian yeast.
Taste: Not overly sour nor tart. Sweet bready wheat malt. Nice flavor.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with massive amounts of carbonation. Very refreshing!
Overall: One of the better Witbiers in my opinion as I am not a big fan of overly funky sour Belgian beers.

Got this in Victory summer 12 pk. First off going in I knew this would be probably be the lest favorite brew in this pack for me, just not witbier guy. Anyways been awhile since reviewing but here goes.
A: Pours a clear watered down yellow, gold color beer with a tightly bubbled head. It didn't quite have that wheat beer head you usually get. Also being clear was a bit of a surprise. Further inspection indicates it also has stuff floating all threw the beer.
S: Green apples, wheat tang, citrus, mint herbal smell going on. Overall smells like apple cider.
T: Starts out yummy bubble gum, wheat and flows into the herbal citrus in the nose and ends with a bit of banana. The banana stay in the the back of the palate throughout, really coats your mouth.
M: A bit thin for style I'm partial to that wheat beer creaminess, i think filtering this took some of that away. I'm also enjoying the dryness this beer puts on your palate makes you drink it down wanting more.
O: A good witbier for sure here way better than I was expecting even for a company as well respected as Victory. The orange was subdued and coriander just didn't get it, was in the smell but wasn't in the taste, which probably helped this beer to my taste. Nice stab at a style that is my least favorite wheat style beer. Also glad it smelled like green apples but doesn't taste like it.
