I bought this hoping it would be as good an early spring beer as the Alpine of a few years ago. Pours nicely with a good head but not so much decoration on the sides of my glass. Cloudy and golden it has a good look to it. The smell is different for the style with a large malt body that has less twang and more bread than is common. Notes of vanilla and and orange with light coriander. An almost bubblegum sweetness. Taste has a lot of fruitiness, ( the added plum ) and spices. Body is quite round and full with a lemony honey maltiness. The orange peel shows in the the finish with nice zesty kick while still being low in bitterness, just enough to refresh and clean the palate. Feel is on the thicker side for a wit with a mild carbonation. Not the home run of the Alpine by a longshot, but a decent quality beer nonetheless.

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.
