Picked up a Keith's sampler containing three of their brews, including this one which I had never had before.

Pouring it into a standard beer mug produces a one-finger head that wastes no time dissipating into a thin ring. The beer itself looks like cloudy apple juice, except with a constant stream of bubbles percolating to the top, indicating heavy carbonation. The bubbles become far less dense once the beer has had time to settle, though. Looks appetizing enough. Smell is a little disappointing - has some fruity overtones, but other than that it smells pretty much like any macro lager.

The first sip reveals it to be a rather watery concoction, and surprisingly enough the carbonation is kind of subdued. The taste is dominated by (unsurprisingly) wheat, yeast, and some barely-noticeable citrusy notes. The label claims there is spice in here, but I couldn't taste it. This beer is extremely smooth, and I can easily see myself pounding several of these back.

I think I can safely say that this is by far my favourite offering from Keith's so far. That being said, it's still pretty uninteresting for the style, and I have definitely had better witbiers. If I buy Keith's again, it'll probably be this.

This beer is my definition of "okay". It's safe, but nothing special. It had a very plain feeling to it but I still can enjoy a bottle or two.

The mouthfeel is very soft and it is mildly carbonation. I actually like the taste to an extent-there's really nothing wrong with it aside from the fact it taste's a tad bit "watery" but not to an obvious extent.

Pours a cloudy pale golden colour. Head is whiteish, bubbly when poured, invisible after a while. Not a lot of lacing. Yeah, really very meh.

Smells a bit like smelly feet, but a lot of fruit to it as well. Decent orange peel note, touch of apple juice, some hazelnut character as well, maybe some chestnut. Fruity; not bad but nothing special.

Orange peel from the start, quite rich and fruity upfront that bulges in the middle and sadly goes away largely by the finish. Bit of a spicy, aniseedy note late-mid with a touch of bread yeast, then finish is a bit grainy, slight coriander spice but otherwise nothing, really. Leaves with a slight cola aftertaste. Has some witty elements but falls a bit short.

A bit of body to it, but there needn't be. Bit heavy and gluggy, finishes dry but also a bit thick.

Stylistically OK, but really didn't do much for me.
