Point Belgian White is a smooth refreshing and distinctive beer brewed in the tradition of Belgian Style White Ales.

It's grains with a citrus kick, it isn't bad but definitely not something to write home about.

Taste Rating in Words: It's like when you make, sweet lemon water at a restaurant, it's nothing special, but it was free.

Decent look and scent. I expected more coriander and orange peel flavoring, was disappointed. Went down smooth, not too strong. I had higher expectations.

Tastes like there is syrupy artificial peach stuff in here, blech.

Yellow hazy beer, lace and retention in standard form. Wheat not obvious, other than the haze, but plenty of citrus rind in the aroma.

Taste was spice rack, and some metal. Grainy, sweet. Pretty run of the mill regional brewery witbier territory, at least it is one of the cheaper options.

Straw yellow to gold in color with a hazy complexion. There's a fingernail of off white covering most of the top. The head retention is nearly gone about halfway through finishing the beer. Muddled aromas of coriander and a suggestion of orange is here. The pale wheat is the primary flavor, but you do get a good citrus orange bite at the back of the palate. The body is fairly light and thin.

My first ever beer review. I started sampling craft beers a few months ago, have tried about 8 or 9. Been a regular beer drinker for almost 40 years, Bud, etc. Okay, I tried another Belgian White a month ago, Blue Moon's version. I thought it was marginally okay, the orange citrus smell and taste was better than nothing. Just finished my first Point Belgian White and found it almost literally tasteless, even worse than the Blue Moon. Seriously, Budweiser has more flavor than this crap. But I could smell a hint of citrus/orange, and that's not saying much. Maybe I'm just now a Belgian White kinda guy. Also, no date or ABV on bottle, not good marketing imo.

The label says "ale brewed with coriander and orange peel". If must have been a very small amount, because there's virtually no flavor here. Very lackluster.

A : Hazy pineapple colored body, about 80% opacity. The head is fluffy and white, 2 fingers initially but fades fast to a fluffy ring with hilly lace.

S : Stale grain, lemon peel with some sour breadiness.

T : Stale grain, moldy wheat, a faint hint of watered down already-been-chewed Juicy Fruit (light bubble gum). Unremarkable and gross.

F : Buzzing carbonation, slightly creamy, mostly light to medium bodied. Ends with a dull nip. Drinks like a light beer actually.

O : This sucked. I'm sorry, this is the worst Witbier on the planet.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 2/16/2015. Pours lightly hazy pale golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, coriander, wheat, cracker, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of citrus peel spice, pale malt, and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, coriander, wheat, cracker, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Slight herbal/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange zest, coriander, wheat, cracker, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good robustness of citrus peel spice, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good beer, but it tastes completely like a pale wheat ale. There is very minimal yeast character. All around good balance and robustness of citrus peel spice, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering as a pale wheat ale.
