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.

Poured into a pint glass.

A- Pours a hazy golden color. Leaves a nice 1.5 finger of head, with lots of bubbles coming up to reinforce the head. Looks nice and inviting. (3.7)

S- Very characterful yeast aroma. Typical banana and clove aromas that are very pleasant. Also some citrus character, primarily orange. No detectable hop aroma, but just smells very fruity and spicy. (3.7)

T- Very similar to the head. Banana, clove, orange, some subtle maltiness. Hop bitterness on the back end balances it out, but just a bit too much bitterness on the back end for it to be as well-balanced as I would personally like it to be. Nonetheless very refreshing. (3.5)

M- Pretty light-bodied, but certainly not watery. Spritz-like carbonation and goes down very easily. Great for lighter dishes or hotter days. (3.7)

O- A very nice take on the classic Belgian Witbier. Very nice for spring through late summer, very refreshing and very easy to drink. By far and away one of the better "summer beers" for the money. (3.62)

On a hot day(s) this is a great beer. Easy to drink - light and tasty!
I am not typically a huge "wheat" beer fan - but this one is great!
