12 oz can served cold into a pint glass.

White rascal is a very pale yellow color with a hazy clarity. The head is thick at first after a vigorous pour but settles quickly.

Aroma is sweet, slightly citrusy, and a Belgian yeast brings a little bit of banana.

Flavor is mild with similar character smelled in the aroma. Lemon, banana, and vanilla cake.

Mouthfeel is very light in body and mild in carbonation.

Overall sort of an unusual beer. No where near what the best wits offer but an ok beer for a summer afternoon.

An above average witbier. It had decent lacing. Although I thought it was too clear for what I expect out of a witbier. Smell and taste were good. Bottles was good but its was better on tap at the Avery Brewing Tasting Event at the Liberty Street Tavern. I would get this again but it would be my third choice behind Allagash White and St. Bernardus Witbier.

12 fl oz can served in a weizen glass, reviewed live:

A - Pours a nearly transparent honey yellow color with a soapy white head of 2.5 fingers. Retention is surprisingly good and the head leaves nice lacing as it recedes.

S - Lemongrass, spice (coriander?), honey and spicy wheat. Pleasant but mild.

T - Spice forward. Clove and coriander open to lemon and a nice pale malt and wheat foundation. Loses its flavor towards the finish, which is watery. Disappointing, considering the nose and open.

M - Way too smooth and wet. Needs to be much more crisp.

D - Definitely a good offering, but far from anything special.

Humongous white head over yellow beer that's mostly clear but slightly hazy. Good lacing on the way down. Smells great - spices, coriander I think. The taste is also good, very smooth wheat beer flavor with spices. Easy drinking, a good session beer. The only real problem I have with this beer is the mouthfeel, which is really, really thin and watery. Not as good as Hoegaarden but pretty good.
