White Zombie AleWhite Zombie Ale
Notes: Although named as a Halloween seasonal, Zombie's refreshing taste makes it a year round staple. It is brewed in the Belgian witbier tradition of using unmalted wheat to create the light body and white sheen. Additions of coriander and orange peel give it a fruity and spicy character, while the hops are subtle and lightly detected. Don't be scared to blow the head off a Zombie and drink up!

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.

12 ounce can -> World Market Tulip

A - hazy straw, one half inch head, no retention, and no lacing. Not a pretty looking beer at all

S - spicy smell, banana, orange peel, and coriander

T - very dry and yeasty throughout with some very spicy notes

M - decent carbonation with a slightly metallic aftertaste

O - decent to style, but not spectacular

A truly horrible beer to me due to the peculiar "Cheap Vanilla Icing" taste that I picked up. Looks decent and smells very forgettable.
I had this on tap as well.

Wow this is one tasty and delicious beer. Even from a can the beer just cannot be smoother from lips to gut. The beer is not overly sweet like many other 'witbiers' that I have been subjected to. Immediately this becomes a brew that I will be on the lookout for when looking for a refreshing drinker.

This had a very corny flavor for a Witbier, but I did get some coriander and spice. Very light wheat but it resembled, at times, an adjunct. Lots of corn maltiness.
