Pours out a golden/straw color. Thin white crown sits on top. Very small sediment floating throughout the beer.
The smell is like earthy straw and hay with some almost tangerine/mango notes as well.
The taste comes through with the fruit in the beginning and quickly turns to the straw which leads into the dry and crisp mouthfeel. What I expect from the style.
Overall, very refreshing brew.

Yellow color with a thin head with short retention.
Wheaty aroma with notes of orange juice and mild coriander.
Flavor with notes of bread, coriander, coconut water and orange peel. Dry aftertaste with a low bitterness.
Light to medium body with slightly effervescent carbonation.
Refreshing and easy to drink Witbier given low presence of spices and phenols and focus on citrus.

From the 12 oz can in a snifter. This rather standard white ale pours a nice
amber tinged chill hazed straw color with a nice head of white foam that settles
to a thick ring, thin light layer, and shows some nice light lacing. Nose of a hint of
wheat and touches of citrus. Flavors exceed the nose with soft wheat and mild
touches of coriander with a mild orange zest note. Decent mouth feel; medium
light body, medium carbonation that is lively, and a citrus laced finish.

A decent after mowing brew.

Cheers

Poured a nice hazy gold into a pint glass. Smell and taste are alike in the fact there’s not much to them - some wheat, some citrus, very little (but some) spice. Easy to drink, nothing too complex, and there’s not much “wow!” to it.

A slight beer front followed by a small citrus middle that fades into nothingness. Crisp and delightful.

Taste Rating in Words: A nice nap, in a hammock, on a sunny day.

Humboldt classic. Can get it everywhere now.
Subtle, bitter, spreads across tongue with wheat. No smells really.

Forgettable. I could have this beer 100 more times or never again and I would not know the difference. If you can get one for the same price as a PBR or Miller Lite then go for it.
