Picked up some local brews on a beer run while on vacation at Myrtle Beach. This was one of them had never heard of them and guy at counter said they were new.(Maybe to the store dont know)
A: Upon pour this looked just p[lain whole lot of foamy top but by the larger bubbles knew it would not last long.
S: Aroma is of wheat and as the can states just a hint wasall you get.
T: Taste is about what I expected with the thinner pour and light aromas, very light wheaty and not a whole bunch of flavor but I found out they taste better icey cold on a hot beach than sitting and relaxing at home.
M: Mouthfeel is on the thin watery side with no lacing and very little carbonation, I did like this aspect reminded me of a true ale as tasted over in Wales in various Pubs.
O: Overall an ok beer with at least a drinkable quality not a drain pour.

With some of the other beers offered here this one being a flagship makes me sad. It isn't a bad beer but when you realize what this beer is and why they made it you understand why it's kinda lack luster. The color is hazy light golden, the kind of color you get with a wort using pale DME for a yeast starter. Smell is ok but kinda has a funk to it that reminds me of other beers that use large amounts of adjuncts like corn despite them swearing they don't use it. Flavor is a bland boring kinda of beer that appeals to the "mainstream" beer drinke. I didn't find much in the ways of complexity in this one, they state they use coriander and orange zest but it's either in the mash or only a tiny amount I didn't notice it at all. Thin beer that is all too drinkable, which is what they were shooting for a light beer that can be pounded on the beach with little damage to your gut.

This citrusy-spiced wheat beer has got to be a hit at the beach! Where temps are high and the sun is strong- its these conditions that beg for these highly refreshing Witbiers. But does their own locally made brand hold up?
As the ale pours, its exuberant turbulence builds into a lathery and sprite separation of foam from ale. With a murky golden body underneath, its head is loosely knit but also looking like structural sea foam. Eggshell white in its stain, the beer's head falters sooner than preferred and leads to minimal lace.
Musty wheat aromas are deeply earthen with tones of grain and sod. A quick reprieve of citrus and spice wash over the wheat and barley for a refreshing orange and coriander brightness to save the day. Lemons, sulfury apples, and wet hay give final impressions as I take the first sip.
Its grainy-sweet taste is partly of dried barley but also of bready wheat. These malts allow for a fruity and spicy balance to play out overtop with all the citrusy flavor that the nose suggests but leading with dried bitter orange peels. That's all counter to soft coriander, white pepper, and a tinge of clove. The taste closes with spicy bitterness of grapefruit pith, straw and a smack of cast iron-type minerals.
Light on the palate, the ale has a zingy white wine character from its lifting carbonation and its Belgian-esque acidity. Becoming playfully fruit, the ale weakens considerably in the middle and leads to a somewhat watery finish that exposes just enough grain-derived astringency as it does hop bitterness or yeast spice. Its understated warmth is lightly minty while coriander provides echoes in aftertaste.
I rather enjoyed this "fun-in-the-sun" type of beer, even though a few glaring weaknesses play out. But outside of "critique mode", this ale would really hit the spot on those hot summer days by the sand!

3.34/5 rDev -1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
A: Light honey or lemonade colour, slightly clouded, 2 finger white fluffy head, little carbonation.
S: Chalk, coriander seed, honey, lemon, slight floral.
T: Watery, slight coriander, chalk, lemon rind.
M: Medium body is watery and only a slight carbonation.
O: Would imagine this refreshing on a hot day in the South, or anywhere. Watery, reminding me of melted ice with the remains of an old lemon or gingerale soda. Like the can, love its from the south, refreshing and would go well with salads, light foods like cold meats etc.

Pours a hazy, golden/straw color. There is also some suspended sediment. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and slight lacing. Smells of hop oils, slight floral hops, slight pale malt, slight coriander, hint of earthy malt, and a hint of lemon. Fits the style of a Witbier. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of hop oils, hint of lemon, slight pale malt, hint of sweet malt, and a hint of coriander. Overall, decent appearance, aroma, blend, and body.
