3.55/5 rDev -0.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Presentation: 11.2 oz can, freshness date on the bottom.
Appearance: Thin stark white lacing with minimal stickage. Very pale yellowish beige with a cloudiness showing some flaky particles of sediment.
Smell: Fresh squeezed lemon juice, bit of citric zest and a mélange of spicing where it is difficult to pick anything out other than some liquorice and citric peel.
Taste: Peculiar mouth feel as it feigns a medium body, semi crisp with a slick backend. Lots of lemon flavour with a plum fruitiness on the side, grainy with some malt sweetness and a wheat twang. Chalky yeast, citric peel and other obscure spicing abound. Finsihes with trace hop flavour and more earthy yeast.
Notes: I’d prefer this brew bottle-conditioned though the canned version is not bad at all and is a perfect switch if in a situation that restricts you to canned beverages only. All in all a decent white ale.

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
