2.55/5  rDev -25.7%
look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Aroma: Lemon zest, orange rind, and citrus aromatics up front. Doughy wheat bread notes in the background. No hop aroma-- ok considering the style

Appearance: Turbid river water amber pour with a low white cap that retains reasonably well. Appears still in the glass.

Flavor: Doughy wheat bread sweetness up front. Slight orange juice-like notes as it warms on the back of the tongue. Balance is even handed with wheat bread maltiness and earthy, citrus-like bitterness. Finish is clean and dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. No alcohol heat, astringency, or oiliness noted.

Overall impression: Meh. A pretty forgettable Witbier.

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.
