Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a very hazy golden color with a one finger head of white foam. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a light level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite heavy of a sour lemon smell mixed with a good amount of a biscuit aroma. A bit of wheat bread and some coriander as well as a little bit of orange and a light grassy smell are there as well.
Taste – The taste begins with a rather dry flavor, with just a bit of a cracker flavor and a bit of yeast and coriander spice. As the flavor advances a very light orange and lemon flavor develop on the tongue bringing just a hint of sweetness and sourness to the profile. Along the same time, a bit of graininess and some light grassy and moderately hay-like flavors develop on the tongue as well. The yeasty flavors grow stronger as the taste moves to the end, leaving a rather bland and dry flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is average as well. With little flavor, an even higher carbonation and thinner body may have been more appropriate for the brew.
Overall – Not a brew I would go to again. For the most part it was very low on the flavor profile with the flavors not even really being that good. While I understand that at 4.7 % abv. that I will not get a flavor powerhouse, this one is actually less flavorful and more offensive then most low cal. brews.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter (bottled on 4/9/14)
A: Carbonation bubbles on the side of the glass. Frothy head that dissipates rapidly. Light white wine color that is slightly cloudy.
S: Smells light and airy, like I remember from the few witbiers that I've had. Though it is a strange smell that I can't really describe. It is like yeast and bread.
T: Tastes like it smells. Just this odd flavor that is hard to describe. It is dry, with yeast, bread and probably grains of paradise.
M: Even carbonation that is light and effervescent.
O: I think this is turning out to not be my style. I needed a cheap beer to finish off my mix six, so I grabbed this. I'm gonna turn this into pancakes.
