Poured into a Sam Adams glass, developed a light frothy head, appeared highly carbonated, like many of the Belgian beers. Color was a hazy straw with lots of bubbles. Aroma was sweet and of citrus and grain. Taste was light with hints of lemon and orange and a grain aftertaste. Mouthfeel was light and carbonated.

Poured from a bottle into a Sam Adams glass

A - Very light in color, not unlike apple juice. A finger of a white head quickly dissipates.

S - Some citrus and wheat. An aroma typical of a Witbier.

T - Above average. Very drinkable and light, but still has some nice flavor. Some citrus at first with a tangy finish.

M - Some carbonation is present, about average for this type of brew. Very light on the tongue and almost a watery quality, which helps the drink-ability, but I'm not that big of a fan. Little to no aftertaste helps to bump up the score.

Summary - Not a bad Witbier, but in my opinion, Blue Moon or Leine's Sunset Wheat do it better.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance:
Bright pale straw color, very hazy. Good amount of carbonation rising. Thick foamy head that dissipate slowly. Leaves a nice lacing behind.

Aroma:
Sweet, wheaty, bananas, orange citrus, coriander spice, yeast.

Taste:
Banana, orange peel and coriander spice up front. Sweet pale malts, a little cracker. Tartness towards the backend of the palate. Finish is dry. Light bodied, refreshing, but leaves a chalky aftertaste, very sharp carbonation.

Overall:
It's decent.

12oz bottle fresh from the brewery. Super hazy yellow-white appearance, very cool how some beers can appear white. Aroma is heavy spice and yeast. Flavor is oranges, yeast, spice and seems like it fits the style well. Overall a decent beer but not one I see myself ever purchasing.
