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.

Honestly one of the worst beers I've ever tried. The amount of carbonation is absolutely insane in the 6 pack of cans I got, and the taste was horrific. I highly recommend buying Miller High Life or literally any other "non-craft" beer over this.

Hazy orange color. Small white head that disappears quickly.
Aroma of wheat, citrus, hint of spice.
Taste of orange and coriander.
A middle-of-the-road witbier.

Utiliarian witbier hits all the stops in solid fashion. Slightly spiced aroma. Cloudy, uniform pour with sturdy head, thick but not overwhelming body. Spices and citrus notes a little at odds with the more understated body, but still overall a super solid mid-tier offering from the kings of the New England variety packs.

Beer pours a cloudy pale gold with a miniscule head. Smells of oranges. Tastes light yet lacks some of the crispiness I associate with White Ales. Overall an ever so slightly above average beer.

I can describe this beer in one word: delicious. A nice orange coloration with a crisp mouthfeel and a lightly sweet, citrus taste rounds this out quite well.

Pours a hazy orange with only the barest traces of head that disappear instantly.

The aroma is primarily orange, but rather than orange peel it comes across more like an orange creamsicle.

A sip brings forth wheat malt, orange notes, and a hint of coriander. It's simple, straightforward, and a little boring. I had it at the same time as I had Unibroue's Witbier, and the Unibroue had a delicacy and complexity to the flavours that UFO didn't. Taking a sip of Unibroue, the flavours mingle and dance across your toungue. Taking a sip of UFO, and the flavours just line up and announce themselves like roll call - wheat, here; orange, here; coriander, here.

Mouthfeel is fine, if lacking the effervescence I expect from Belgian witbiers.

UFO is fine - not thrilling, but fine. If someone hands me one, I'll gladly drink it, but I won't be buying it again as there are a lot of better options. A lot of people say UFO is a better Blue Moon, and it very well may be, but UFO doesn't hold a candle to witbiers from La Trappe or Unibroue or St. Bernardus. Even American breweries are making better wits, such as Victory's Whirlwind, or Avery's White Rascal, or New Belgium's amazing (and sadly discontinued) Fat Tire Belgian White.

L: Pretty standard color with a 3 finger head that dicipates fast with minimal lacing.
S:Wheat, orange, and a subtle spice scent
T: far more wheat and less orange than seen with most beers in the style, kind of bland and wish there was a bit more too it.
F: Decent body and strongly carbonated which I enjoy for a summer beer. The only aspect of the beer that I felt was strong.
O: While more sophisticated, wheaty, less sweet and generally preferable to a shocktop or blue moon, there are far better beers in the style such as Allagash white or Calabaza Blanca
