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.

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.

T - Citrusy, wheat with light bitterness not stays to long, I didn't found coriander taste.
M - Medium carbonation, light body, low level of alcohol in taste.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is a clear light gold color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is citrus hops. The taste follows the nose.

I cant say anything about the appearance. ..because i tasted this one Straight out the can. Aroma is sweet and citrucy. Taste is sweet and spicy. For me this tastes like a Martini Cocktail or like almdudler. No elements of expected yeasty and dense mouthfeel. All in all ok for the style.
