A: Poured a lovely hazy, pale yellow with a thin foam head. Head retention was brief at best
S: Very subdued lemony citrus, and even fainter on the wheat. This doesn't smell like the witbiers I'm used to.
T: Pretty bland for a wittier. The citrus and wheat are in there, but they are very subdued. As another reviewer had mentioned, it's like a "witbier light." I expected a little more flavor.
M: Rather highly carbonated, even when poured, which gives it an air of cheapness. Fizzy on the tongue.
D: Overall, refreshing, but doesn't live up to what a witbier can be. Rather disappointed but at least it's easy to drink. If I had to do it over again, I think I would pass this one over and get something else.

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.
