My rating is more of a reflection of value at cost. The first batch of cans in NY is selling at $16. It's a very refreshing beer. Greatly refreshing with lots of clean carbonation. Sensationally grabs you with a huge bite. A lemon creaminess can be sensed, but the beer retains a watery feel. Tart lemon acridity makes a very dry finish. Earthy yeasts there as well help dry the palate. Stereotypical beer at an astronomical price that lacks a WOW factor.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12oz can into a tulip.

Appearance: light gold hue with a touch of haze and a finger of frothy white foam with OK retention. Not too bad.

Smell: aroma is wheaty and floral, but overall not terribly complex. Decent, but I'd like a lot more.

Taste: wheaty malt flavor with lots of spicing; coriander and orange peel to the front. Actually, a touch of sourness would make this a pretty good gose, but as a witbier it is merely good and not great.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a big carbonation and very full creaminess. I love it.

Overall: tasty enough and quite drinkable; a perfectly serviceable witbier.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a slightly hazy straw amber with a thin white head that dissipates to patchy foam and ring around the glass. Aroma of bready wheat malt, light citrus, coriander and Belgian yeast; slightly tart. Flavor is semi-sweet wheat, coriander, mild Belgian yeast; finishes with very light wheat and coriander, light hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied. Hits all the witbier flavor notes, but the finish is somewhat abrupt and doesn't quite support the spicing. A satisfactory wit, but not quite up to other domestic versions.

In a pint glass the beer was gold in color with a faint haze. There was a modest white head.

Aroma was outdoors, grassy. Faint citrus and faint spice.

A little more to the taste. Wheat, lemon, pepper, and coriander.

Light and refreshing.

A modest beer, neither overwhelming nor underwhelming.

3.34/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Pours a murky light yellow-orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, yeast, chalk, and slight citrus and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and spice flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is easy to drink but it's fairly bland all around.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

Pours with little head, but nice lacing, and a beautiful sunny color. Mild citrus and spice smell. Very light, mild taste; "Notes of citrus, cumin and coriander" advertised on can, and I'd say it's certainly just notes, but they are there. Moderate carbonation, and smooth low-viscosity texture.

I'd compare it unfavorably to Allaghash White, due to its muted flavor.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Served in a half-pint glass at Ale Arsenal.

A: Hazy, bright yellow. White head.

S: Yeasty and delicious. Delicate. Some tart funk and wheaty citrus.

T: It's okay. Light, slightly spicy. Coriander? Aftertaste is brief, kinda bitter. Spicy but not dry. There's a kind of 'off' taste of plastic or artificiality that could be the spice.

M: Barely tart. Refreshing.

O: Good but not great. Would have again, infrequently.

Serving type: on-tap

12oz Can. Pours hazy-golden with tall, foamy, white head. Aroma is of yeast, wheat malt, spices and citrus. Body is medium and creamy. Taste is of Belgian yeast, wheat malt, coriander and citrus. Finish is long and spicy. Nice, refreshing brew white ale.
