It was a beautiful Friday night here in Philadelphia. I was planning in grilling and I wanted a beer to go with my meal so I stopped at Whole Foods looking for a growler.

Poured from said growler into a standard goblet.

Appearance: Pours a bright, hazy yellow. Pour produced three fingers of slightly off-white head which was very quick to recede. Pretty standard looking witbier.

Smell: Sweet fruity notes - pear, apple, some lemon. The Belgian yeast aroma is also quite prevalent.

Taste: Bubblegum, banana and cloves upfront. Tastes are noticeable but fairly mild. Yeasty with a touch of spice.

Mouthfeel: Light bodies and very drinkable. Perhaps a touch under carbonated but only slightly. This paired very well with my grilled chicken and rice pilaf.

Overall: A pretty basic, by the book witbier. What it lacks in boldness and big flavors it makes up in drinkability. Not a beer I'd seek out but still a decent witbier.

Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

Poured into a light yellow orange. Cloudy, with a white fluffy head. Nice lace and good lace layer remains. Lots and lots of lace. Good looks.

Brew smells of sweet malts; banana, cloves and yeasts. A decent spiciness as well, some grassy notes. Good nose.

Brew is crisp and spiced up front. Creamy in the middle and finishes a tad bit dry. Very pleasant and clean drinking. Good spicy clove and yeast back bone. Some grassy flavors and orange and lemon are here. Not the biggest flavorful witbier I have had. But very soild. Good mouthfeeel here. Good stuff.

Brew is solid and a great drinker; typical for the style. A good representation. Nice wheat brew.

This beer pours a bold, clear yellow with finger thick head and nice lace to the finish. The aroma is lemony with a bit of spice and some grass. The flavor is lemon with notes of hay and mild hops with a mildly dry, vinous finish. The mouthfeel is light-medium. Weyerbacher Blanche is a good beer, a good representation of the style and a good pairing with tuna broccolli casserole. Recommended.

When i poured this beer into a pint glass, it has a clear yellow body with a white fizzy head that lays down quickly. The smell is light of fruits, mostly pear. The taste is very dominate of pear and then some wheat also. The mouthfeel is nice and crisp and smooth and well carbonated. Overall this is a good drinking beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Light, crystal clear hay. Lively, Champagne-like carbonation in the glass. Loose white head has nice lace and retention.

S - Huge, sweet bosc pear nose. Touch of pepper, sour lemon and cilantro. Just a hint of butteriness.

T - Deep pear notes with a rich, sourdough wheat body. Juicy throughout with a honey-like sweetness. Tart green apple and honey through the finish.

M - Pleasantly light body. Super smooth. Most of the carbonation seems to have been spent on the pyrotechnics in the glass, and it could use a bit more in the mouthfeel.

O - Great drinkability. The profile is sweet and loaded with white fruit.
