330mL blue bottle
Served in a Carlsberg pilsner glass

This beer pours a slightly hazy, pale yellow color. It is topped with two inches of fluffy, white head that leaves decent lacing.

It smells skunked as soon as the cap is removed. After the skkunky aroma dissipates I smell a healthy dose of candy orange which is a welcome relief.

The taste starts a little skunky but not as bad as the initial smell would indicate. Once I get past the skunked flavor I get sweet orange flavor. The skunked flavor persists throughout the entire beer.

Light mouthfeel with a lot of carbonation

This would probably be a lot better on tap without being lightstruck. I think I'll pass on the blue bottles in the future.

On tap at Bonds Tavern in West Orange. Pours a golden effervescent hue with minimal frothing. Mellow aroma replete with hints of citrus and sugar. Similar overall flavor profile.

Brasseries Kronenbourg "Kronenbourg 1664 Blanc"
330 ml blue glass bottle, production coded but without freshness dating
$2 @ Weis, Conshohocken, PA

Notes via stream of consciousness: Another beer that I've had many times but never reviewed, probably because I'd thought that I'd already had. Mostly I've had it on draft though, and I wasn't aware that it had "natural flavor and caramel color added". That's a little disappointing, more for the "natural flavor" than the "caramel color". I wonder what that natural flavor is? Anyway, it's a hazy yellow gold beneath an average-sized head of bright white that steadily dwindles down into a thin creamy cap. The aroma is floral and delicately spicy over a sweetish, lightly wheaty malt base. The flavor adds a distinct note of lemon, and then orange, and I'm guessing that's the "natural flavor" that's been added. There's a touch of coriander seed in both flavor and spiciness, and along with a limited bitterness and light touch of acidity it comes to a semi-dry finish with just a dollop of sweetish malt gently lingering. A light body and crisp carbonation help as well. It's not the best Belgian-style witbier, but it is nice. It's actually quite refreshing on a warm day, although I've also enjoyed it at an outside bar on a chilly spring afternoon.
