Notes / Commercial Description:
Light, crisp, refreshing UFO White follows in the tradition of spiced wheat beers that have been brewed in Belgium for well over 300 years. Brewed with orange peel and a unique blend of spices, UFO White is the perfect choice for a summer’s barbecue, a night out with friends or any time you¹re thirsting for something a little different. Like UFO Hefeweizen and UFO Raspberry Hefeweizen, we leave UFO White Unfiltered for a more natural taste and appearance.

12oz bottle with a date

No head, looks like carbonated pear juice. Smells like key lime pie. Very light flavored wheat beer, with fruit flavors being most prominent, with just a bit of spice.

Very enjoyable, although I'm not sure what UFO refers to

Very smooth, fresh, carbonation helps keep it light, but still a solid beer taste as opposed to light beers. Standard Wit flavor with orange and coriander. This has been my go-to Wit beer for a while now, just so refreshing.

Aroma is big coriander, spices and wheat. The flavor is citrus, coriander/spices, wheat and a mix of mild sweetness and slight fruit tartness in the finish.

Got a sample bottle of this beer from my distributor. Overall it reminds me of Blue Moon with a slightly less citrus taste. You may notice a good mouthfeel with a light body and a clean finish. No lacing. This is a good choice for White Beer who are not in the mood for an adventure. A nice addition to the UFO brand.

I tried this beer at my buddies in Philly. It poured yellow with white head that did not leave any lace. The scent had hints of citrus peel. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's decent.

Draft. Shaker pint.

A: pours a hazy bright yellow that retains half a cap of thin skim. Not much in the way of visible carb. No lacing, but the cleanliness of the glassware here is seriously questionable.

S: clean wheatiness. Very mild citrus, but not getting much in the way of spice.

T: arrives with an immediate touch of mild clove and tangy bitterness. Some phenolics linger, but the whole affair is light.

M: midweight, but with high small-bubble carbonation, so it feels lighter. Lingering slickness.

O: this is quite nice. I don't like it as much as Holy Moses, possibly on par with winter white. This is less phenolic, more citrusy on the palate. Way better than Hoegaarten.

L: hazy gold amber under a 1/2" cream colored foam collar with good retention.

S: big aroma of bread dough followed by orange peel and coriander with a trace of banana. The coriander aroma peaks in the middle.

T: spice, citrus, coriander, orange peel, bread dough and banana with the banana growing as the beer warms.

F: creamy with a medium light body and medium high carbonation.

O: This is a very nice beer for sitting outside on a patio or a sidewalk table and contemplating the warm sunshine.

A cloudy looking beer with orange and lemony citrus..very refreshing and tasty...probably best for summer months but good enough to be drank year round.
