L: Cloudy yellow with a nice white head, to bad it disappeared quickly and didn't leave anything else.

S: Super citrus with a huge amount of orange and a slight amount of coriander.

T: Coriander with a fair amount of orange and a slight tickle down the back of my throat from the carbonation.

F: A fair amount of carbonation with a nice feel.

O: A pretty good beer from them, defiantly could have more than one of these at at time and not feel bad.

Day 14 of the Phillips Snowcase advent calendar. 341ml bottle poured into tulip glass.

Pours a clear yellow with a one finger head that leaves almost no lace because I didn't dry the fucking glass off properly.

Smells of wheat malt, yeast, orange zest, coriander, banana chips and mild pepper.

Tastes of white bread, banana chips, candied orange peel and peppery yeast. Finishes with sweet fruit and spice.

Lighter side of medium bodied with mild carbonation.

Verdict: Pretty nice. Simple and refreshing. Recommended.

341ml bottle, part of a broken-open 2015 Snowcase pack at my local chain liquor store outlet. A simple-seeming witbier - really the best choice for a winter mixed offering?

This beer pours a mostly clear, pale golden yellow colour, with three pudgy fingers of puffy, finely foamy, and generally fizzy bone-white head, which leaves some low-lying storm front lace around the glass as things genially recede.

It smells of grainy, lightly doughy pale malt, some gritty wheatiness, zesty white and black pepper, muted coriander spice, musty orange peel, a bit of dried banana chips, edgy, bordering on phenolic yeast, and a twinge of well-played out bubblegum. The taste is bready, semi-sweet pale and wheat malt, more banana and orange peel fruitiness, fading table-top pepper mill dust and correspondingly ascending sugary coriander, with a sense of Hubba Bubba juiciness burbling under it all.

The carbonation is quite understated in its barely palpable frothiness, the body a decent middleweight for the style, and more or less smooth, only the yeast and insecure spice perhaps making hay right about here. It finishes trending sweet, the mixed graininess and fruitiness putting in some serious overtime.

I suppose my innocuous opening statement was more prescient than I had anticipated - this is indeed a simple, if earnestly rendered witbier, the sweetness quotient a little too high, while the fruitiness could use a fair bit more zingy acidity, rather than the candy-esque character on display here. Generated for a more Yuletide-friendly experience, maybe? Sure, let's go with that.
