4.05/5  rDev +22.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured a 341-ml bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance - cloudy, flourescent yellow beer with thin, evenly foamed head with foamy lacing sloping up the sides.

Smell - very floral and citrusy, with fresh leaves and spices dancing around together. Fully aromatic with the images of spring flowers immediately coming to mind.

Taste - nice even bitterness right from the start, breaking to offer some citrus spice and then back to the tart wheat and hop bitters. Not the weighty wheat flavour typical of the style, obviously brewed lighter to have a much fresher and more refreshing effect.

Mouthfeel - pretty balanced and decent complexity. Crisp enough to be refreshing as well.

Drinkability - this is a good beer. A lot of white beers have been brought out lately, it's like it's the in-thing. I'm not slamming the style but a lot of the new products are weaker offerings, a "me too" approach from many breweries. This product is pretty authentic and more on its own, which is a plus as far as I'm concerned. I'm going to have another when I'm done this one.

3.03/5  rDev -8.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Pours a nice frothy white head with good lacing. Colour is gold and a bit hazy with a nice stream of carbonation.

S: Wheat, spiciness, light honey, cereal (Honey combs ? lol)

T: Honey combs cereal, light lemon, base malt, a bit of spiciness from hops.

M: Spritzy carbonation, (a bit too carbonated IMO) Carbonation cleans away the taste too much and too fast. I like my witbier with more character.

O: Good beer that can be drank in a session. The Taste and Smell do lack a bit of character as I feel this beer is a bit safe. Carbonation is way to high IMO.

2.38/5  rDev -27.9%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

It has nothing amazing and it is a average beer. It isn't that cloudy and it is straw color. I like the citrus notes and ginger in this beer. I think it would be good if there wouldn't be ginger. It isn't too watery and it smells like ginger ale. I drank it first from the bottle and after from a glass and it seems a lot better from the bottle but i can't find why.
