From the 12 oz can in a snifter via a friend from work---again, Thanks Kevin.
This old easy drinking stand by pours a lemon hazed lightly cloudy yellow with
a nice head of white foam that subsides to a thick ring and thin layer with nice
sudsy lacing. Nose of subtle lemon zest, light coriander, and soft wheat malt notes.
Flavors exceed the nose with lemon zest and soft wheat notes balanced with light
coriander and subtle clove notes awash in sweet honey malt notes. Nice mouth feel;
medium body, medium light carbonation, and a lightly tart subtly dry finish.

Overall, a solid wit that is worthy of your next BBQ.

Cheers

White Rascal has a thin, white head, an opaque, yellow-gold appearance, racing, tight bubbles, and minimal glass lacing. Aroma is of sweet white bread and a trace of citrus. Taste is of sugar, white bread, spices, citrus, banana, bubble gum, and wheat malt. Mouthfeel is high medium to low heavy, and White Rascal finishes medium wet.

Number 100! Started rating beers on this site in December 2016 (4 months) I saved this one for 100. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head some lacing. This is a witbier like Blue Moon my favorite session beer. Has the smell and taste of citrus and spice like a witbier. While not as good as Blue Moon it's a very good beer.

Poured up a cloudy golden straw, with a good head that laced nicely as it dissipated. Mild, subtle aroma, hints of spice and citrus under a bread tone. Full flavor upon drinking, almost like drinking spiced bread. Decent aftertaste and good feel in the mouth. Almost not bitterness. An outstanding beer.

Avery White Rascal is a very solid beer. Off the pour, it was a murky pale straw color with a large white head. The first smell that hit me was clove, some citrus , banana, and spices so to say. Taste follows the nose for sure on this one. I love Avery products and this one does not disappoint. It is a nice attempt at a Wit for sure. Give it a go !
