Full Pint Brewing White Lightning Belgian White Ale 18-IBU's, 6.0 ABV.
Look: Pale yellow, very hazey, thick with clouds.
2 inch white head that dissapates to a ring with with some lacing. The look reminds me of a lemon meringe pie.
Smell: Lemon, orange, spice, wheat.
Taste: Lemon, orange, coriander, spicey bite at the end(maybe because of the grains of paradise/and/or hops).
The spices gives it an earthy quality that adds to the complexity slightly.
Feel: Super light, fluffy like a cloud of citrus hitting your tongue, or lemon flavored cotton candy. It is sweet, but not too sweet.
Overall: This is really one of the most well balanced and consistently great tasting American craft wheat brews I have had. Beware, you'll want to drink this one very fast which could end up in overintoxication. Since it has the light and fluffy combination you won't even feel like you are drinking alot.

DATE: April 23, 2016... OCCASION: seeking refreshment after a long day of charity car washing and baseball in the Meadows... GLASSWARE: Victory Rare Vos pint... APPEARANCE: sizzles as it pours a murky, bubbly yellow-blonde body with a rim of uneven of-white froth... AROMA: orange peel and lemon zest, with lightly toasted oats providing a pleasant, inviting aroma... apple and pear may come courtesy of the Northern Brewer hops, as does the wood pulp... PALATE: medium-bodied for a white ale; reasonably vibrant, with enough effervescence to refresh... leaves a slight aftertaste that is bitter and lemony... TASTE: Is the secret spice ginger? Grains of Paradise? Either way, the flavor is lemon, coriander, orange, apple and pear, and a sweetening pepper... the malts are not as pronounced as the label may suggest, but oats and toasted grains give the taste buds much to mull... OVERALL: not going to replace my favored wits, this is a serviceable, sessionable (although the label states 6% ABV) summer evocation... the sum is greater than the weight of its individual parts...

Cloudy yellow with a lot of carbonation. Decent smell of Orange and malt. Taste is fantastic but a little bit too much carbonation in my opinion.
