Tastes like a dry beer with a bit of orange peel and spice. Pretty good, but not very good. I'm not too familiar with the style, but I have had many Belgian beers that are better for me. It's easy to drink, kinda like an ice-tea. I give it that. A decent drinkable orange/lemon beer. Very simple and easy, but nothing fancy here.

This is a decent beer, it just bastardized the style. Way too much lemon citrusy taste. Looks promising, completely opaque but with a wit beer concentration color. Nice wheat on the nose. A lot of orangy/lemony flavor. Extremely overwhelming and cloying. Easy to drink, no doubt, but it resembles a shandy more than a true Belgian wit. It also has a sour grapefruit taste although it is not bitter. Yes, it is still within the freshness date, before you ask. Not bad but I’ve had at least 25 better.

12oz bottle.

Pours cloudy yellow with a fluffy head of white. Decent retention and ok lacing. Lemony aromatics with a hint of random citrus and cut grass. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Lemon-spritzed malt husks on the palate with honey undertones. Finishes sweetish with more lemon.

Reminds me of Blue Moon with the mandatory lemon slice.

Frist off the smell is of orange peel. Maybe yeast and sourdough but mainly orange peel and citrus.

Taste just like it smells. Orange peel with a slight bitter citrus after taste.

I expected it to be smooth but the citrus cuts through my taste bad leaving a odd bitter after taste. Not going on my favorite list but not the worst I tried. Somewhere in the middle.
