Cloudy straw-yellow with a pearl-white sticky head. Smells almost exactly like the Crystal Light lemonade that my wife sometimes drinks.
Spritzy mouthfeel. Flavors are shallow--a bit of citrus zest, a slight peppery taste. Dry, quick finish.
No complexity, but drinkable and refreshing. Would make a good lawnmower beer, if I wanted to pay $10.49 a six-pack for that kind of brew. But since I can find comparable domestic beers for probably four bucks less, I'm not likely to pick this up again.

Sticky white lacing that persists. Very pale yellowish beige with a cloudiness and some sediment. A flashlight revealed more sediment in bottom of can trough so I poured some beer back into can and vigorously swirled.
Aroma of bread and oranges with a predominant yeast overtone. Actually smells like orange flavored dough rising.
Taste is fresh baked bread with malty sweet orange zest. The finish has a slight metallic twang, presumably from the can. Perhaps the most yeasty, bready witbier to date. The yeast aroma persists throughout the session while the metallic note fades into non-existence. There is a pleasant, lingering orange oil finish after several minutes.
For yeast lovers this is a superb witbier that achieves near perfection, at least for my palate.
