When i poured this beer, it has a hazy golden color body with a small white head, that quickly dissapears. The smell is very aromatic of orange and coriander. The taste has a nice orange flavor to is, not overpowering and the coriander and other spices come through really nice and subtle on the back of the tongue. the mouth feel is great, well carbonated and balanced. this is one of the better witbier i have had.

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.

Poured from a bottle into a Sam Adams Glass.

Appearance: Hazy amber color. Thin white head and slight lacing on the glass.

Smell: Hops, Citrus and pine and malt notes.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste of citrus(more orange than anything) hops and bitter pine notes.

Overall: This was a decent brew, I drank the whole 6 pack of it my wife got me, so I guess it was good!

Hazy cloudy straw color. Thick off white head with nice lacing.

Orange citrus really pops out in the nose with a little bit of lemon rind in the back.

Taste is citrusy with a little bit of orange sweetness. Refreshing summertime beer very thirst quenching.

Medium bodied. perfect for this style of unfiltered wheat. Love that slightly creamy texture.

overall I like this beer. Honestly its pretty much a summer ale with slighty more of an orangey character. Actually , and I hate to say this, its a slightly less good Blue Moon. Coors made a better product than Sam? Is snow falling on Satan?
