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: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.

Deep light orange with hints of lemon yellow. Solidly opaque, with some degree and sight of carbonation inside. Head is fluffy and makes three fingers tall with an off white appearance. Fairly decent staying power as it falls slowly.

A real nice smell of orange but a bit sweet and artificial slightly. Spritzy clove slightly, but lots of bubblegum and penny candy smells.

Palate comes a little dissapointing. Very watery brew, with little malt depth at all. Not much Belgian character to this amongst a wet and orange tang sugary body. Kool aid like finish with lots of sweet character. Sort of flattened soda character also.

Overall it comes off kind of weak and really there's no wheat depth to this at all. Drinks like sweet tang kool aid fruit punch orange more than anything.
