This beer was served in a pub glass.

Appearance: The beer pours a hazy straw yellow with a moderate amount of sediment. The head was a white and two fingers high.

Smell: The beer is loaded with citrus zest, corriander, lemon and malty sweetness.

Taste: This beer is a combination of lemon and orange zest, peppery corriander with a brief flash of sweetness.

Mouthfeel/ Drinkability: This beer is light bodied with gentle carbonation. The beer is easy to drink. This beer is a nice sessionable beer.

I was so happy when my local grocery store started carrying this line!

Pours a cloudy light orange with a bit less than a finger of fluffed white head. Head retention is weak, but lacing is fairly sticky.

Smells of orange and spice, light malt.

Taste is smooth. Dried orange is most dominant, however not overpowering. Sharp spice in the back with a light wheat-malt finish.

Mouthfeel is very lightbodied and smooth. One of the smoothest Witbier's I've had.

Drinkability is good. If this continues to be available I'll be drinking it all the time.

A: Clouded straw with a dissipating white head.

S: Floral with notes of coriander, orange squash and nutmeg.

T: Oh, nice and bitter. What a surprise. Getting the infused nutmeg at the back. Sharp and tart with an orange squash flavour. Very little coriander, unlike from what I was getting from the nose. Not bready but still has a malt base of sorts. Has a very slight bacon/meat flavour.

O: Hoegaarden and Blue Moon put me off witbier for years but a mate bought one of these for me and I've found it very refreshing.
