I am pouring this from the tap in my garage, out of a 5 gallon. I am not basing my comment on a 4 oz taster in a bar somewhere. i am nearly through a 5 gl tank of this, and i would usually have an ipa on tap, so a pale ale like this is going to be scrutinized every time i change the laundry. in my garage. where the beer is. This is not a weissen beer, whoever thinks that is mistaken. This is a pale ale with some added spice that actually makes it even better, a surprisingly white creamy head, you can't pigeon hole this beer. Sounds like the dryer just shut off, I'm gonna go check on that...

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – Served a hazy yellow colored brew with a one finger thick white head. The head has decent retention fading to leave a nice level of lacing.

Smell – The smell is heaviest of wheat and orange and lemon citrus. Mixed with these aromas are some notes of yeast, coriander, and banana. Rather classic witbier smell.

Taste – The taste begins with lots of wheat and some orange citrus. The citrus grows stronger more toward the middle only to fade some in the end. While the citrus grows to its max, it is met with a yeasty and spice flavors of coriander and clove. These spices and yeasty flavors grow stronger at the expense of the citrus and with a light grassy and funky flavor, which comes to the tongue at the very end of the taste, together leave a wheaty, yeasty and lightly spice and funky taste to linger in the mouth.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather light in terms of creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather high. Again classic witbier style in feel and good for the flavor profile.

Overall - A fairly easy drinking and tasty brew, but in many ways just on in the crowd witbiers. Nothing was bad, but nothing really stood out either.

Golden yellow body and a small head on the pour. Very poor lacing but somewhat common amognst this style..?

Strong corn aroma as well as a hay smell, but not in a bad way like most cheap lagers. Malty, bready and some banana and pineapple.

The taste starts out sweet then quickly dissapears into a spice filled world. Banana and a lemon zest finish this one off.

Clean, crisp and refreshing. Light bodied and easy to drink.

A decent brew by Avery that I enjoyed but not sure if I would come back to this. Maybe during summer time while grilling up some burgers, but not something i would really have again as a desert.
