look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 3.25

A: It looks like the usual Belgian White look, with a hazy orange and light brown hue
S: Smells more tropical than just straight up orange like you usually expect which is actually fairly nice
T: Pretty sweet with tropical notes, but lacking spice and any bite. Not enough carbonation and was almost like drinking a somewhat flat cider
M: The lack of effervescence makes it pretty unsatisfying. It's smooth, but almost too smooth and thin
O: I appreciate the grains of paradise and the more tropical notes for a Belgian; that made it very interesting. But, the lack of carbonation and any bite made it pretty mediocre.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, moderate carbonation, gold in color, hazy

Smell: grains of paradise, cardamom, and coriander

Taste: lemon, orange, peach, grains of paradise, clove, and other Belgian spices, slight other hops

Mouthfeel: medium body, sweet with a slight bitter end, low carbonation

Overall: A nice and flavorful citrusy wit. The bitterness is not as pronounced here as it has been in other examples of the style I have had. This is a beer I would reach for if I wanted this style.
