2.98/5  rDev -16.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance: Poured an extremely pale hazy yellow. This is probably the closest to white I've ever seen in a beer. Sitting on top the pale brew was an enormous four finger rocky head. It stuck around until the end and left some large splotchy lines of lacing.

Smell: If only the trend continued from the appearance. The aroma is extremely muted. It's sweet with some traces of orange peel and what I'd swear is adjunct grain. I'm not accusing the Belgians of using adjunct in their witbier, but something about this is replicating the corn induced sweetness of an adjunct lager.

Taste: This tastes like witbier light. All the usual suspects are here, they've all just been turned down a couple notches. A dash of orange peel, a dusting of coriander and the slightest suggestion of wheat malt towards the end. The same adjunct mimicking sweetness is present from the smell. Speaking of adjuncts I swear I'm picking up a bit of metallic vat in this.

Mouthfeel: Nice medium body with a bit of creaminess. Carbonation is pretty much spot on. Definitely enjoyable in this regard.

Drinkability: It's not like I had to choke this down or anything. It was a decent beer, but in all honesty I wouldn't bother with it. There are other examples of this style that are readily available and superior.

Serving type: can

3.58/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

11.2 oz can was poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a two finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy golden yellow with some vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Light aromas of bready wheat, vanilla, yeasty, and green apple.

Taste: Same as above. Nothing spectacular and pretty simple.

Mouthfeel: Tart wheat, chewy, light bodied, refreshing, and medium carbonation.

Overall: A nice witbier. Not fantastic, but nice. Out of a can too.

Serving type: can
