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.

This smells like hoegaarden but tastes awful. There is a bad after taste and it isn't really cloudy. This is labatt product so we can't ask much from it but at least try. It has a yellow color but this beer looks filtrated. It ia way too expensive for what you get though. But this is the style of keith's, we can't trust the kind of beer we buy from them just by looking at their suppose "ipa".

This is the best beer I have had in a long time. I like a sure bet. The taste of this beer is well researched. It is fancy with its seville orange flavour, yet it does not have a bitter aftertaste. It has a full aroma and taste without being heavy and filling. I haven't bought anything else since I first tried it a month ago. I find there is something mysterious about it.
Tank you Keith, I like the way you think!

A-pours a hazy straw color with a white head with pretty short retention
S-Fairly soft aroma that has a bit of malt with lemon
T-mild malt profile with a citrus, and spice in the finishes. Finish is clean with no bitterness
M-light bodied
O-Overall not a bad brew. It's not the best witbier but good for macro. Would have again

Served to me blind by @LaitueGonflable. It took me a while to guess it was a witbier, which is not a good sign. The scores and comments reflect when I was unaware of what style it was meant to be.

Pours a slightly hazy, pleasant golden hue, with a fine film of white across the top of the glass. Some patchy lace and a surprising heft to the body means it stays around. Fine carbonation. Looks pretty good, overall.

Nose is mellow and slightly grainy, with the suggestion of sweetness. Slight almost-funk to it, giving it a touch of hay and barnyard, and perhaps a little acidity. It has a horsey, husky character that smells a little reminiscent of a rice lager as well. Not huge, but it's not unpleasant.

Taste is flat and a little empty, with a twinge of brusque bitterness on the back, that echoes a little like aluminium foil. Mostly light, but relatively clean and bright. It's not going to win anyone over in the flavour department, but it's not unpleasant.

Yeah, it's pretty dull, but it's smooth and quite drinkable. Could use a little more crispness, but there's a place for a mellow, smooth but tasteless beer as well.

This poured out as a pretty nice looking hazy yellow color with a sticky white head on top. The retention is decent, and the lacing it quite nice also. The smell of the beer is a little on the weak side, it's got just a light soft grain aroma to it. Smelled like a summer beer to me. The taste kind of gave off a pumpkin spice flavor. The mouthfeel is light and refreshing. Overall it's a decent brew, I found it to be drinkable. I wouldn't turn it down.

Appearance: It has a nice cloudy pale yellow/golden color to it. It has a nice white head that dies down quite fast and leaves little lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitly give out hints of citrus and oranges, spices and some wheat.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a nice citrusy and orange taste, light spices and wheat and a bit of corn.

Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a light overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with fairly bland flavors and aromas.
