Pours golden (not as hazy as expected) with a thin, lasting head. Some lacing sticks.

The smell is of coriander, orange peel, some bready notes and pale malt.

The taste is of coriander, orange peel, and honey-like sweetness. It has a firm pale malt backbone. Finishes with a spicy dryness with a sweet kiss.

It is smooth, with a spritzy, but not fizzy, carbonation level. Very refreshing!

It uses the spices well - forward, but not overwhelming. The malt is strong and the yeast strain is somewhat muted for the style. It is an easy-drinking beer with nice aroma and flavors.

I was surprised to find it in a winter variety pack, but it does work for something lighter in the winter. It is an enjoyable, year-round brew!

12 oz twist-off bottle poured into a tulip
5.38% ABV

A - Turbid but bright golden in color, Point's wit retains it's white cap of foam briefly before residing to a ring of loose bubbles and little lace left on the glass.

S - Supple wheat gives way to grainy pale malt and a subtle waft of sweet orange peel and a dash of spicy coriander. Yeast esters contribute notes of clay and bubblegum but this has an American wit written all over it.

T - Heavy grainy pale malt topples the push-over soft wheat flavor as this becomes even more Americanized in flavor; it almost completely abandons the classic yeast profile found in witbiers leaving a soft touch of coriander along the finish, drying out the faintly sweet orange peel.

M - Soft wheat qualities make it through but this beer has a resounding harshness on the back end with it's grainy malt profile and dry spiciness leaving a lasting impression on the tongue.

O - Point's Belgian White looks and smells the part but drops off into what might be considered an American Pale Wheat Ale with it's lack of forward Belgian yeast characteristics and somewhat higher of a pale malt profile. The coriander and orange peel give it a refreshing quality though which makes it one easy drinking summer beer!

S - Poured in a pint glass from the bottle

A - Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a creamy two-finger head. Be sure to stir up the sediment that has settled to the bottom of your bottle to enjoy everything this great beer has to offer!

S - Strong aroma on this one, heavy on the coriander and orange peel. Also clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon.

T - Nice blend of orange and very mild lemony zest coupled with a good balance of those same herbs and spices (clove, coriander, etc) encountered in the aroma. The mouthfeel is oh, soooo smooth and with a lingering sensation of cinnamon and orange peel. Very smooth and tasty.

O - A deceptively complex beer whose taste lives up to its appearance. Flavorful and refreshing, very easy to take healthy pulls so your taste buds can enjoy this one. It will leave you wanting more!

Poured into a perfect pint.

3.0 A: Murky golden yellow color. Just over one finger of frothy white head that falls quickly and leaves no lacing.

3.5 S: Pleasantly spicy nose. Lots of coriander with orange peel and citrusy orange, pepper, and perhaps a touch of clove. Clean, refreshing, and pleasant.

3.25 T: Taste is more intense than the nose suggests. There's a sharp citrusy tanginess that comes on as a big of a surprise. Corriander, orange, and orange peel with pepper and clove. Neutral malt sweetness. It's not bad, it just needs a bit of refinement .

3.25 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Could use a bit more creaminess, but it's good enough.

3.5 D: I might have been a bit harsh on the taste as this is a tasty beer, it just isn't as cohesive as many others I've had.
