3.65/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Manzanitas pint glass
From: VONS in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $7.99 (w/ VONS card) for a 6-pack
Purchased: Feb. 16, 2014
Consumed: Feb. 16, 2014
Misc.: Enjoy by May 2014

Poured a golden hazy color with 1-to-2 fingers of off-white head. Minimal foggy lacing on the sides of the glass on the way down. Below average amount of light film on the way down.

First thought of smell was, ‘Yeah, this is a Sam Adams beer.’ Got orange rind, spicy notes, light Circus Peanuts, cloves, wheat, lemon, honey, coriander, nutmeg and some tropical notes.

Tasted honey, orange rind, coriander, wheat, grassy hops, cloves, light sour fruits - kiwi, grapes and still those tropical hops.

Light body. Thin-to-oily texture. Soft carbonation. Slightly abrupt finish.

Overall this was a decent witbier. I’d have it again, especially the other five that I have in the 6-pack.

This beer poured a hazy orange color with a small white head. There was a bit of lace.

A peppery, spicy nose. Maybe a little citrus?

Taste of pepper and coriander. And yes, some orange.

This beer didn't really do anything for me. Thin, not much to it.

At $2.99 for a bomber, I thought it was a good price. It just isn't a very good beer.
