About what you would expect - could have used more Belgian yeast to add a little more depth, it is pretty thin and has minimal flavor, just some faint clove / yeast

Tastes and feels like overly sweet, cheap, flat blue moon. A very disappointing belgian white, with nothing to keep it afloat besides a decent orange flavor.

ENJOY BY: 03FEB19.

Appearance: Pours a soft, lightly hazed, yellow body with a small, thinning, white head.

Smell: Juicy, sweet-smelling orange component with goodly fragrant coriander and paradise grains. Light, extant, pliable wheat to tie things together.

Taste: Sweetish, citrusy, lightly tangy and juicy with the orange element landing quite quickly. Soft yet airy wheat, oat cushion underneathe. You get a nice, fresh pop of the floral, citrusy, zesty accents from the grains of paradise and coriander. Dries out gently for the crispish finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Likely crafted to peel off some of the Blue Moon crowd, and, while I have no idea if it's succeeding in that endeavor, I gotta say, it's pretty darn good. A solid rendition of a style you, for better or worse, don't really see breweries churning out these days, having moved onto styles and gimmicks they deem more sexier, more profitable.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

LOOK: Hazy with 1 finger head pour. Quite flat for the style
SMELL: Not very aromatic - some spice - some fruit - some Belgian yeast
TASTE: Decent tart bite upfront - gets a bit malty and dry. Some spice comes through.
FEEL: A bit flat - tiny bit of carbonation - quite thin.
OVERALL: Decent brew - doesn't quite hit the marks for a Belgian Wit for me but still a decent drinking beer. Needs more Belgiany yeast and spice - needs to be a bit fuller / medium bodied. It's a good beer though.

24oz can poured into Duvel tulip. Picked up at grocery store for $2.50. 25 NOV 2018 printed on bottom of can, so this one still has about a week of freshness left in it. Can is slightly dented it seems. I don't know if it's the specific store or what but it seems tallboys are more dented up these days.


Appearance - Opaque whitish-gold. Tons of small particulates. Massive semi-loose silky white head with good stick and great retention. 4

Smell - Cardboard at first but then it opens up into some soft rounded floral and grassy hop. Fairly tame and uninteresting. 2

Taste - Bitter hop, citrus rind. Far too bitter for the genre. Spicy. The alcohol is not hidden at all, even at such a low ABV. 2

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied. Somewhat astringent. 2

Overall - Not pleasant. Maybe it's because it's so close to the best by date, or maybe because of improper storage or can damage. But this was surprisingly undrinkable. 2.25

Gateway witbier. Very similar to blue moon. Oily, wheaty and smooth. The smell is adjunct wheat and lemon. Taste has orange, lemon, wheat, yeast, clove, pepper, and corn sweetness. Not terrible, especially with the underlying lager tones, but not gpod either
