Pours a hazed pear color with 2 fingers of eggshell colored head. Average lacing & faint head retention

S: Coriander, a butt load of orange peel, breadyness & perfumy notes

T: Follows the nose, rich pear notes as well up front. Much orange peel & some orange sweetness, plus coriander & chamomile once warm. Finishes with orange, orange, pears & coriander & a little dryness

MF: Light/medium bodied, lively carbonation

This beer has charmed me, a little off centered take on the style, but totally drinkable, I would buy this again; easily my favorite of the 3 canned offerings

Pours to a sudsy white head that falls to thin ring with minimal lace. Cloudy gold. Aroma is strong on coriander, with orange peel and a good whiff of chamomile. Flavor is strong on the herbs and spices with a orange chamomile tea finish. Refreshing mouthfeel. A very good wit.

In 40+ years of beer drinking, this was my FIRST drain pour. Two cans.

Its not that the style evades my palette - this stuff was absolutely awful. Maybe something was wrong with what I got.

The biggest problem was simply the taste, which was mainly characterized by a sour-stale-rotting flavor and smell. Must have been defective, because I can't believe Anthem would be canning something like this.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of wheat and citrus. Taste is wheat, a bit heavy handed on the coriander, light lemons, not as refreshing as I expect from this style. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.

Pours a hazy golden-orange with a fluffy white head that keeps growing after it is poured.

Smells of orange and wheat notes.

Tastes of orange layered with a spices and wheat. Orange peel notes lead off with some sweetness to it. This gives way to the coriander and chamomile. A bit of wheat sharpness comes towards the backend. Finishes with some lingering orange notes.

Mouthfeel is medium-light with a creamy amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a solid witbier, but it is too one note for me.

A-Cloudy bright yellow, nice carbonation but a head that does not last long.

S-Lemon, wheat, tad bit of grassy spices.

T-Slight lemon, mainly wheat, tad bit of orange.

M-Lighter, not much carbonation though.

O-A beer whose flavors are decent but not good and are not that strong either.
