Doesn't so much taste like a Belgian Witbier as it does a German hefeweizen (without the cloudiness) such as Schneider Weisse. Lots of bubblegum taste alongside a slightly sweet smell. Overall this is a much better beer than I was expecting, even if the style it was intended to be is not clearly evident.

A: Pours a hazy golden orange in color with some light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation, significant amounts of large off-white chunks of yeast, and some peach highlights. The beer has a finger tall off-white head that reduces to a medium sized patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass.

S: LIght aromas of fruity yeast along with light aromas of wheat. Even lighter hints of lemon citrus and just a hint of herbal hops.

T: Upfront there are light flavors of wheat and some grainy malts along with some hints of lemon citrus which intensifies as the beer warms up. Light hints of herbal hops which leaves no lingering bitterness.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Crisp.

O: Pretty refreshing for a hot summer day and not unenjoyable though I'm not a huge fan of large amounts of visible chunky yeast sediment.

I poured this beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer poured a cloudy yeast infection looking brew. The beer had a nice wite puffy head. The beer smelled citrusy tasted that way also. with a slight bitter finish. The head went away fast and the beer smelled bad. Still I liked the taste good enough to drink again.
