Canned 10/8/21; drank 3/7/22 @ the Yarchives.

Cloudy orange/yellow appearance.

A rough pour yielded a big, noisy white head; a thick curtain of tree-rung lace.

Wheat, orange peel, fresh flowers & faint clove notes in the nose.

Soft, medium mouthfeel.

Wheat, orange peel & fresh flower flavors up front; mild clove notes on the finish.

A very pleasant witbier; I'd have another!

draught
Murky, Medium orange, with some light golden highlights. Subtle, clove, candied toasted wheat, with a little bright floral, yeasty quality, to the aroma. Clove/coriander, subtly blending with a slightly effervescent, yeasty, off-dry, lightly caramelized toasted grains, with a hint of ripe banana, in support, during the taste. Finishes with a spiced fruit and touch of tang.

The pour is pale, almost clear with a hint of gold. It has a nice white head that lingers a bit with laces. Getting notes of nothing on the nose. Not much here to rate, drinkable but not notable.

True to style. All the right parts of wit are there, nothing seems to be missing or out of place. Very nice summer beer. May be, just may be, a bit thin, or may be it's me drinking it out of the season.

Wheat beer, clove, and easy drinking, this is now underrated for being widely available.

L: Straw yellow. Hazy. Glossy.

S: Wheat--Banana+Bubblegum. Coriander. Orange peel.

T: Very much a wheat ale. Like a standard hefeweizen with a bitter finish instead of a savory one. Contains spices, but it's not particularly spicy or anything. An Ayinger Brauweisse is spicier.

F: Nothing remarkable.

O: It doesn't stand out. That could be good or bad. I'm pretty sure the branding and labeling are the most compelling reasons to have it. Maybe the brewery just wanted an in-house Blue Moon?

12 fl. oz. bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV not mentioned on the label. Hazy straw coloured beer, big to low white head. Typical witbier aroma of coriander and Curacao orange peel, also notes of cloves. The flavour has moderate notes of coriander and cloves, but the usual witbier citric notes are not coming through as strongly as desired. Bland finish.

Appearance: Pours a slightly clouded (35%) light golden color with a large white head. SRM of 7-8. (3.75)

Aroma: Strong aromas of white citrus, wheat, coriander, and Belgians spices. Hints of clove. Some more white lemon citrus and white grape lingers. (4.25)

Flavor: The flavor follows here with more white white wheat, white lemon citrus, coriander, and Belgian spice. Finishes with a lemon citrus flavor. Clean and citrusy with a moderate amount of yeast. (4.25)

Feel: Medium-bodied. Strong carbonation. Finishes clean due to the yeast and citrus. Well-balanced. (4.25)

Compared to Bells Brewery White Winter 1/22/21: Pours a similar color with slightly more haze. More citrus/lemon, white wheat aromas/flavors.

Overall: This is a fantastic Belgian-style witbier from Avery out of Coloardo. It has fantastic white wheat, white citrus, and Belgian spice flavors. Nice yeast and citrus pick this beer up and give it a balanced, clean inish. This flavor would make a fantastic soap, candle, cookie, and a beer too. Damn this is a good Witbier. (Final Rating: 4.27)
*If found again, compare to the best witbier*

pours a hazy straw yellow gold body with excited, billowing frothy chalk white head with low retention that leaves strews of sticky lacing as it settles to a rocky halo before fading nearly completely

spice: barley, coriander, orange peel, slight clove. Belgian yeasty funk blends well with barley and wet citrus wheat. faint grass hop in the background bitters well with fruit peel.

taste follows the nose, with a lush citrus sweetness leaning in first, followed by spice and funk notes, ending with faint hop

high carbonation, light body. smooth, wet, finishing dry.

overall:
fancy Blue Moon/Shock Top with a nice minorly complex flavor profile that leans into its Belgian inspirations. nothing wildly special but certainly wildly enjoyable.

A crisp beer that is dry and leaves you wanting more. Smooth and lovely.

Taste rating in words: A smooth drywalled room. Hard to do. Great look

I like it because I can't detect the coriander. I like coriander/celantro in Mexican food, but in beer, I don't want to detect it. I know some people are genetically programmed to taste coriander as a soap taste.
Good beer for a hot summer day, in my price range, and much better than Blue Moon or Shock Top.

I can't say this is a bad Witbier, but it is nothing super special. It has the usual flavors and textures but the finish is bit high and I can't say that I would choose this over over similar beers. It is a good beer, but I cannot say it is more than that. As always, I recommend you try this bier yourself and see how it meets your tastes.

A little light for for my liking. This beer is smooth, sweet and a little spicy. Over all, yes, I’ll look for this beer and definitely drink it again

Look: Poured a hazy egg yoke yellow with a fluffy white head.
Smell: Banana, clove and yeast, pretty standard for this type of beer.
Taste: Banana, clove, butterscotch, saltine, cinnamon. Very clean, no funky aftertaste.
mouthfeel: Somewhat creamy, but light.
Overall this is a pretty good brew that gets better as it warms.
