A- Pours a hazy yellow, with a thin head that dissipates almost instantly.

S- Smells like orange, followed by spice and wheat.

T- Very light, and has some of that citrus flavor, but very little spice or wheat flavor.

M- Super light, almost watery.

O- Not nearly as complex or spicy as any of the wheat beers I really like. Nothing offensive, sure, but not something I'll buy again, or even something I'll recommend to others.

Appearance - Pours a very pale yellow color with a thin, frothy head that dissipates instantly. Leaves a thin lacing

Smell - Citrus, orange peel, coriander, and clove.

Taste - Lemon citrus, pale malts, wheat, and orange peel. Light notes of coriander and white pepper in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with carbonation that creates a creamy feel.

Overall - This is a very drinkable witbier.

Pours a cloudy dull orange, light brown with plenty of haze and apparently sediment flowing throughout it. Nice aroma of citrus rind, orange, keeps the clove in check, nothing too estery. Just bready citrus rind, which I dig.

Taste, some coriander still seeps in, even if it was not obvious from the whiff of the aroma, but the citrus helps to obscure it from being a bother. Lots of carbonation also help to keep the spices from bogging down the palate. Some white pepper like notes. Not really my favorite style, but there's nothing 'wrong' with this beer, its standard fare.

I dunno who I would recommend this to, even though it is fair. I guess people who like lighter, non hoppy beers with seasoning type herbs in it.

12 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a Uinta brewing pilsner glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are average.

Served refrigerator cold. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a one finger beige head of no real cream, okay thickness, and below average retention. Colour is a hazy dull yellow-gold. Not a very impressive appearance for a witbier. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Wheat, lemon, lemon peel, clean malts, and fresh citrusy notes from the hops. Appealing. An average strength aroma. No yeast or alcohol is detectable.

T: Fresh lemon peel, some grapefruit, and other tropical citrus notes. Clean malts lend it body but add little. It's a strange witbier, but an enjoyable one. I do wish the fruit character was more focused and consistent, but it's a pleasant flavour all around. Some honey. Maybe a bit of spice. Quite nectary, which I like. Decently balanced and built, but not real complex or subtle. It's not boring or bland, but it leaves much to be desired.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Too heavy on the palate. Too thick. A bit overcarbonated. These qualities make it overbearing, which a witbier is never supposed to be.

Dr: A pretty enjoyable witbier, but nothing to write home about. I'd have it on draught at a bar for a decent price, but it isn't anything unique or special. I do like the nectar flavours. Very drinkable, but lacking sufficient complexity.

C+
