A: The beer is hazy pale yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down but consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: There are very light aromas of citrus and wheat in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, there are muted flavors of citrus and wheat in the taste. There are some hints of spices and yeast towards the finish.
M: It feels light-bodied and watery on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. The yeast and spices adds a little bit of dryness to the finish, which seems unusual for the style.
O: The beer isn’t difficult to drink and has some hints of refreshing properties, but there’s nothing interesting about the taste that would make me want to try it again.

Poured 40 degrees Fahrenheit into a Sam Adams pint glass. $1.50 for a single 12oz.

Pours an almost completely clear light gold with a 1 finger head that dissipates within 30 seconds.

Nose is almost non existent, but is there with some yeasts and the slightest hint of coriander maybe?

Taste is surprisingly thin for what I was expecting of a wheat beer. Tastes like a weak adjunct lager. No hints of any wheat. I think I taste mostly corn. I would rather have a Coors Light than one of these.

It's really pretty hard to try and review this as the style it claims to be, as it doesn't even do that. Regardless though, as a beer of any kind, just generally unpleasant to drink. This will probably be a drainpour.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass. This will be a short review and will start with, I did not like this at all. The appearance is standard. It looked like most other Witbiers. Smell was okay. a bit of spice but nothing too noticeable to point out. Tasted like a watered down Blue Moon. Mouthfeel was light and crisp. Drain poured after having about 1/3 of glass. Not interesting enough to finish. Would not get again.

Thanks for this one, Will. Maybe.

Muddy straw gold with a quickly fading head, looks pretty standard. Smells decent, very citrusy with strong lemon notes, backed by orange peel, rising bread and raw grain. The palate is surprisingly awful, exhibiting a strong fruity sweetness followed by brash astringency, like over-steeped tea rather than hop bite. The astringency fades into a bland, thin wheaty finish that's oddly slick. Pretty bad stuff, one of the worst wits I can remember having.
