Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a white color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of citrus, some spice. Taste is good, citrus up front, some mild spices at the finish, very easy drinking. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer, I imagine it would be refreshing during the summer.

look: 2.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

appearance: Kind of orangey, caramelly colored. The meniscus of the liquid lacked any real effervescence or character otherwise. Just a very average looking still liquid.

aroma: Little to speak of. I'd like to say I could smell citrus notes in this, or coriander, or something, but it really doesn't waft very well.

taste: Above all, it tastes like there is a lot of unused malt in the bottle. There are hops, but the malt flavor borders on syrupiness.

mouthfeel: Bland, little carbonation, but also little body. This has a dry or particulate feel - really noticeable if you run your tongue over your teeth.

overall: This is a thin beer, and barely a Witbier. I expect either effervescence or body, and since there is so little carbonation, something needs to make up for it, but doesn't. The flavor leaves a strong sugary aftertaste - that bitter/tart on the back of the tongue - which to my palate is offputting. Honestly, a Blue Moon on tap is a lot better than this.

Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow with small white head. Nose feature light bready wheat, heavy coriander, and highlights of orange. The taste is mild with wheat up front and the spice character follows. Nice refreshing and straight forward wit. Mouthfeel is light an refreshing. Overall, nice easy drinking beer.
