12 oz. bottle into a pint glass

A - Thin, white, frothy head that dissipates somewhat quickly. Cloudy and golden in color with lots of fast rising carbonation bubbles. 3.75/5

S - White bread, citrus (orange), spicy, floral hops. Very much focused on the citrus and spiciness. 3.75/5

T - Orange peel and spices really come out to the forefront. Very little bitterness, just a bit on the back end, more herbal than floral. Hops are somewhat difficult to pick out. Sweet caramel note. Very light breadiness. 4/5

M - Medium bodied but does not sit heavy at all. Disappears from the palate rather quickly. Carbonation not as pronounced on the tongue as expected. Very smooth (more than likely due to the oats). 4/5

O -Very good white beer. Head retention is somewhat disappointing but very good flavor and mouthfeel. Low IBU really lets the orange and spices come out. 3.75/5

Pours a hazy, gold color. 1/5 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of a hint of clove, slight pale malt, hint of sweet malt, slight citrus, and a hint of yeast. Fits the style of a Witbier. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of a hint of clove, slight pale malt, hint of sweet malt, slight citrus, and a hint of yeast. Overall, weak appearance, aroma, body, and blend.

Pours an effervescent straw color with a thin beige head that drops off quickly

S: Wheaty & some pear

T: Follows the nose, dryness & a little lemon zest up front. White pepper, dryness, pears & a little lemon once warm. Finishes a little dry, fruity, with a little lemongrass

MF: Light body with lively carbonation

Drinks alright, sort of a training wheels Wit. Glad I only bought one versus a six pack; just not that interesting

Straw colored with a hazy complexion. There's a fingernail of off white covering most of the top. Aroma of pale wheat and faint coriander are present. The taste is initially brisk with coriander and pale wheat and then the mouthfeel is a bit watery as it reaches the back of the palate. The fade rounds out with more of the lingering pale wheat. I think this would be refreshing on a hot day, but I wish the body was more substantial. The head retention was also weak.

T: Slightly sweet palate with wheat, citrus, lemon, orange and coriander.
F: Medium light body, medium high carbonation.
O: While it does not particularly stand out, this Witbier is refreshing and easy to drink.
