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.

A - poured a pale straw with light orange highlights and a one finger white head that dissipated quickly much like a sprite or other similar soda would. No lacing or residual head leaving it flat looking shortly after the pour.

S - nose is a subdued fruityness, candied banana notes followed by tons of orange dominant citrus aroma that also is a little lemony. A mellow malt wafting through after that with some slight pepper and herbs.

T - very mellow flavor profile, starts with a slight fruity yeast taste thats a little herbal with orange and banana, ends with a mellow malt flavor, slight bitterness but not substantial, and almost a lacking wateriness at the end.

M - carbonation is medium to low for the style, or at least less then what I'd prefer. This left it less crisp and a little chewy for the style.

O - this is a good solid beer, but has some areas leaving me less then impressed. After the pour the beer was very flat in appearance. Taste was great but wish it was kicked up a notch, it seems a little mellow and subdued.

Harpoon's "UFO White" is a top notch Brew through and through,of course if you are not a fan of the style,you will probably hate it..[Derp!] anyway,I myself love this amazing Witbier,a very snappy bitter Orange flavor,and nice Wheat backbone with an almost Champagne like Carbonation ~Love it!
