look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz can into miller lite pint glass

Appearance is a clear straw yellow with a white head that stays around quite long for the style. Tons of citrus rind in the smell and some wheat light/dry notes. Taste is again orange rindy and wheaty with some hints of yeast, finishes with a light spiciness (from the hops or coriander?). No off notes. Mouthfeel is light body and medium/high carb and some dryness (not much for the style).. Very easy to drink

An interesting with that leans heavily towards the orange rind instead of the yeast and spice. Very well suited for warm weather drinking. Nice to see a light beer like this pulled off with no off notes that are so easy to come out in these light beers. Nothing wrong with this one, I just prefer the yeasty/spicy wits.

A - pours bright yellow with a big, dense, white head that has good retention.

S - heavy lemon zest, faint straw

T - straw, coriander, orange peel, lemon zest

M - light to medium bodied, smooth, very crisp

This is a light, easy to drink beer. It has a heavy citrusy character and the carbonation is a bit heavy, but overall it's not bad.

White Zombie is a solid witbeer. It pours a slightly hazy yellow with white head and no lace. The scent carries hints of bread and touch of citrus. The taste is evenly balanced and sessinable. It isn't as potent as some wits....which I like the subtly. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its quite nice.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass.
Aroma- Malt, wheat and maybe coriander. Nice aroma.
Appearance- A pale yellow color with a small white head.
Taste- The wheat and citrus is present along with (?) coriander
Palate- This is a light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. It has a flavor and texture made for the warmer months.
Overall- A pretty good Witbier that I recommend and i would drink again.
