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.

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.

L-Pours a slightly orange golden beer. Small head. Bubbly.
S-Faint sweetness from orange peel, wheat aroma as well. Malt.
T-Thick, watered down flavor wise, slight orange flavor. It's nothing special, but all in all it refreshing.
F-Milky?
O- I could take a lot of these back without thinking about it. Very easy to drink but thats it. Nothing special at all. If you're looking to drink and have a good time with a buzz its not bad. Nothing exceptional.

This beer pours a hazy yellow with a large head. The aroma is hugely lemony, with a touch of spice, cracker malts, orange peel, melon, and pineapple. The flavor features bubblegum, blueberries, light lemon peel, pineapple, and melon. The mouthfeel is light and soft with bubbly carbonation. Overall this is a very naturally fruity beer, with a great soft mouthfeel and just the perfect hint of spice. Quite excellent.
