This is definitely a Belgian wit. Compared to some others this version from SA is real heavy on the orange-especially the peel. Spicy-lots of coriander. Plenty of malt body but it is overshadowed by the heavy dose of orange peel and coriander. Carbonation is appropriately medium/high. An ok wit-would prefer it a little more naked.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a goblet, best before June 2013. This pours a hazy golden yellow with an okay off white head which has decent retention. The smells are nice and citrusy, full of orange peels and spices. The feel is medium. The taste is decent, you get a little bitter orange along with mild hops and some malts.

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, White Lantern is a hazy, peachy-wheat color with a thin, active white head. The nose is sweet and spicey, corriander is definitely noticable which complements the otherwise orangy-citrusy backdrop. The flavor is what you would expect based on the taste. Very similar to Blue Moon, but possibly a bit more tart and not quite as sweet. Mouthfeel is light to medium in body with a mouthcoating carbonation. Overall, a good beer, nothing outrageous but definitely a solid beer.
