3.35/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

I decided to give this witbier a try as an alternative to leffe blanche and hoegaarden during the superbowl this past year. It is better than average when compared to the mass market American beers (Bud, Coors, etc.) but not by much.

A: Pours lemon blond with slight opacity. 1/2 inch head with only minor lacing dissipates quickly after pour.

S: Subtle citrus and lemon zest on the nose. Nothing from the hops. Clean.

T: Crisp and clean malt flavors. Orange zest tasting. Balanced with very little hops bitterness.

M: Thin and watery. Not a rich beer. Designed for hot summer day refreshment or for mixology (Shandy, etc.).

D: Drinkable, not overly carbonated. Goes down easy although tastes a little thin. Would benefit from a twist of orange.

Serving type: can

4.24/5  rDev +18.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

11.2-ounce bottle poured into a weizen glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy yellow gold with some yeasty chunkiness floating below the head, which is considerable. The head is a big, frothy white that is about two fingers in depth. Carbonation seems more moderate than I expected. Lacing less than I expected.

Smell: This beer has some fairly forward aromas, including orange, citrus, lemon, clove, ginger and spices. Appealing.

Taste: Nice, fairly complex flavor profile that follows the nose. I'm also getting a slight sense of banana that might just be in my head. Citrus and clove are the most dominant flavors. There are also some breadiness and grassy notes in there.

Mouthfeel: It's refreshing and sessionable, as a witbier should be.

Overall: This is a very nice wheat beer that I'm glad I picked up. It has a nice mix of flavors that are all traditional for the style. Would drink again.

Serving type: on-tap

This beer was an okay beer. It has an hazy and golden yellow color to it. The aroma was a good smell, at least I liked it. The taste was pretty good as well. I liked the green apple taste that it has. I could smell some vanilla in the aroma as well. I
