Notes/Commercial Description:
Light, crisp, refreshing UFO White follows in the tradition of spiced wheat beers that have been brewed in Belgium for well over 300 years. Brewed with orange peel and a unique blend of spices, UFO White is the perfect choice for a summer’s barbecue, a night out with friends or any time you¹re thirsting for something a little different. Like UFO Hefeweizen and UFO Raspberry Hefeweizen, we leave UFO White Unfiltered for a more natural taste and appearance.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A - Initially very impressive pale golden/straw color when poured from the 12 oz bottle. The head amounts to about 1 finger in height before receding to a slim coating. Great, lasting carbonation, but it does not retain and there is no lacing to speak of on the glass.

S - I expected orange peel and spices. I got more of a lemony smell, along with mysterious spices. Little bit of light sweetness.

T - Edited: Dominant taste is the spice mix, which now seems overdone to me. Complimenting the spice mix is a bubblegum sweetness, which I'm not a huge fan of. Hidden somewhere in the background is an orange/lemon grassiness.

M - Drank it cold and the mouthfeel was a lot better than warm. Very light with tight carbonation, almost soda water type feel. Unfortunately there is also a bit of a lingering aftertaste that I do not care for, less prevalent at cold temps.

O -It's spring time in New England so I figured I'd give this another go. I was able to discern a couple new flavors, specifically the bubblegum and grassiness. It's drinkable, but not terribly enjoyable for me. Best consumed cold and quickly. Note: edited from last year. My score for this increased a bit.
