Notes/Commercial Description:
A witbier bursting with good karma. Made with dried organic orange slices, fresh-cut lemongrass and a bit of coriander, this Belgian-style white beer is a great thirst quencher.

Pours a five+ finger white head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Hazy straw color. Strong carbonation and light-medium bodied. Orange and lemon grass nose and flavor is orange, lemon grass some tartness. Good Summer drink. $10.99 for a 750ml bottle from Julio's Liquors Westborough, Ma.

Poured a hazy orange-gold with a finger of bright white head. Light aroma of lemon, wheat, orange peel, and maybe a hint of lemongrass.

Highish carbonation and a creamy, light mouthfeel. Wheat and gentle lemon up front followed by a hint of pepper and a burst of slightly sweet orange on the tail end.

Balanced, dry, and refreshing and still packs a good deal of flavor.

a hazy straw yellow pour with a little too much head (looks over carbonated), lots of lacing due to head. smells of bread, pepper, zesty citrus (lemon mainly). a slight punch of initial bitterness of dirt followed by a sweet citrusy orange flavor, as well as some citrusy tang. not really all that much there. light bodied with way too much carbonation (comparable to a freshly opened bottle of seltzer, i actually got gas bubbles up my nose).

overall, this was really an average beer. a good session drink, and a good summer lawn mower/yard-work beer. i don't see a reason why they would put this in a bomber and not just sell it by the six pack. very average flavors and smells, but at least it LOOKED nice. i think maybe there was a problem with this bottle being over carbonated that took a bit away from everything.

750ml bottle

A- Quarter of a finger of white frothy head, translucent yellow, slightly hazy, some sediment towards the bottom of the bottle. Average carbonation. Leaves some layered lacing.

S- Sweet Lemon, orange, wheat, some floral scents (coriander) mixed with grass. Fairly aromatic, can detect the scent a few feet away.

T- Lemon, orange, a little bit of coriander, a little bit sweet, with a bitter citrus finish. Nice sweet aftertaste that lingers for a few minutes.

M- Medium bodied to a little bit on the light side but still supporting sort of a creamy mouthfeel. Well balanced and goes down smooth.

O- This was a great wheatbeer. I'm usually not a huge fan of wheat beers, but I couldn't definitely see my self drinking this on a regular basis if it were in 6-packs. I liked how it a good balance between the orange, lemon, sweet, and bitter tastes. This would definitely make a great beer to have on hot summer days. I would definitely recommend trying some.
