3.41/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a hazy, mellow golden color with a white half finger head. Fair retention. Spotty lacing, with fair stick.

Smell - Wheat, light milkiness, subtle corriander. Typical witbier aroma.

Taste - Moderate notes of milky wheat character. Lesser notes of citrus hits around mid-taste, and the faintest touch of spice near the finish, which is clean and light.

Mouthfeel - Refreshingly light, with moderate carbonation. Goes down smooth and easy, with a quenching quality.

Overall - Not a very flavorful brew, but what this witbier lacks in flavor, it makes up for in a light, refreshing drinkable quality. Maybe it's because I got a light workout in before review, but this thing is really hitting the spot. Probably would have been better mixed in with the Sam Summer pack, and not the Spring pack that comes out before the snow has even thawed.

Just as the label says, spices and citrus peel with an excellent aftertaste. One of my all time favorites. I thoroughly enjoyed it. How long do these comments have to be before the bros at beer advocate will accept it??? I'm not the best taste analyzer so have mercy on me ba!
