look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

I'm probably doing an unnecessary step in pouring this into an elegant Duvel tulip but I guess I can try to get as much as I can out of this beer.

Pours a light golden white wine color with a soapy looking white head that rises to the brim. Leaves decent lacing.

Smell is rampant with orange peel, though there are hints of spice and yeast twang.

The taste is phenomenally underwhelming, it tastes like light beer. This literally tastes like carbonated mineral water with a pinch of sour orange.

The mouthfeel is average and the drinkability low. This is an "elegant" chugging beer. At 6.50 a 6 pack it isn't worth it as an "elegant" chugger.

A: This beer poured light and cloudy with about an inch and a half of very fluffy head which dissipated fairly quickly. It had ok lacing throughout but nothing really that noteworthy.

S: The smell was of wheat and citrus. I enjoyed the citrus note but not really much here.

T: Huge disappointment. After the citrus smell I was expecting some sort of taste to accompany it, but it just tasted watery. I just started looking on the bottle for where I missed that i bought a light beer.

M: Very light mouth feel. The beer was not very carbonated which just added to the sensation of wateryness.

D: Although I could drink this beer all day, i definitely wouldnt want to.

Half way through i seriously considered pouring out the rest of my glass, but decided against it. I have the rest of a six pack left, and am not looking forward to it. May try to pawn it off on some friends.

This beer pours a clear pale straw color. The head is one inch in height, and recedes quickly into sparse lacing. This beer looks absolutely nothing like a Belgian Witbier. The aroma is of overpowering cardamom. This taste is like the aroma, but not quite so overpowering. The mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium bodied with a watery texture. This again is nothing like a Belgian Witbier. Overall, this beer seems like it is trying to be a wiitbier, but trying just isn't enough. I will not be drinking this beer again.

Yikes! This beer taste like your average home brewers first attempt at brewing. Looks like a golden swamp of mess. Tones of bananas with a strong yeast tone. Taste like it smells thought maybe the citrus acid of an orange would calm it down a bit but it turned it in to a nice breakfast shake. I do not care to much for this beer. If you like a beer that taste like a yeast infection then this is the one you want.

very faint coloration on initial pour with heavy carbonation. head didnt last and had a sour scent with wheat hints. mouthfeel was similar to an alka seltzer due to the carbonation and not enjoyable. Perhaps that biased my view of the taste but not one I enjoyed.

The first white biere i've had.

A: The crystal clear color that it has sort of surprised me, when they say white beer they don't lie. After pouring it it turned an average piss color with a lasting head that eventually turns into a white ring arround your glass.

S: I could smell the wheat and the smell had little hop presence.

T: Nothing special nothing bad. I just don't like the way it tastes sadly. I can taste the wheat. The taste is also very spicy and sort of hoppy.

M: A really bad mouthfeel, far too bubbly to get anything above a 1.5.

D: Rough, and leaves an aftertaste. But it's not quite that bad.

Bottom Line: A quite below average white beer i'm sorry to say. I would reccomend this to a white beer fan but no one else.

A- Poured a hazy yellow, small head, decent lace retention.

S- Nothing surprising. Detected the fruit (orange) and spice (coriander) used in the brewing process. Light hint of a soapy alcohol scent, if that makes any sense.

T- I really felt that this fell short of my expectations of a "Belgian White." Not a lot of flavor.

M- Pretty bubbly. A bit over-carbonated.

D- Not on my list to try again.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Pilsner-Urquell branded pilsner glass.

Appearance: Pours a whitish/yellow color with a thin fizzy head that dissipates slowly leaving no lacing.

Smell: Has kind of a subdued wheat smell with a faint lemony/orangey aroma.

Taste: Has a faint wheaty taste with the same citrus notes found in the smell. Leaves one wanting a little more...

Mouthfeel: Thin, watery, and over-carbonated.

Drinkability: A pretty bland witbier. Honestly, it's hard to find something good to say about this beer.

12 Oz Bottle Poured into Pint Glass

A: Pale yellow very clear, 2 finger head with lots of lacing that sticks around.

S: Orange rind and coriander spice with a hint of hops, maybe a little grass.

T: Taste is much like the smell... I'm tasting Orange rind, coriander spices, hops and some grassy notes... I like orange taste in my beer not the rind....

M: Crisp & clean somewhat over carbonated. The body is very light but not overly watery feeling.

D: Not a bad brew, just not my taste... I love Blue Moon and thought I'd give this one a try.... It is no Blue Moon I'm sorry to say...

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Pours the typical look of a Belgian wit in color, a very pale cloudy wheat body below a white head. The head retention is poor though.

Aromas are some coriander, lemon, and pale wheat malt.

Flavors match with a bubble gum quality to it as well. Very crisp, quite refreshing, but nothing to sit back and think about. There's not a ton of character to it, but that is okay.

The mouthfeel is pretty light, okay its is very light but that isn't the worst thing for a witbier (I am thinking Sam Adams Double White). Carbonation is actually not all that high for such a light body.

Not bad, not great. A middle of the road witbier.
