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.

I love this beer. A few sips in, take the time to breathe in through your mouth and you'll really feel the power of the alcohol. Then breathe out through your nose--that's where the orange peel reveals itself into an almost floral zen.

I could be wrong, but this beer is so citrusy, also has a very honey texture when sipped. But it's not heavy. I prefer this over Blue Moon, which, on the contrary, can get sickening. This is personal preference, even with foods, stuff that's too heavy does not appeal to me.

Very smooth pour, head is not thick, but that's okay because the foam will probably delay the enjoyment by just a few microseconds. You want the citrus to hit you w/ a pang for this one.

The malt comes way after.

A - translucent wheat gold

S - light, crisp, a bit of citrus

T - refreshing wheat beer without being plain at all, actually an enjoyable flavor

M - light but heavily carbonated, refreshing after being out in the sun

D - quite so - no one flavor is overpowering the other

After having the UFO Hefe I was happy to pick up this six pack (as it was also on sale for the week!!!) and give it a try. Glad I did. Just a refreshing as the Hefe and just as enjoyable. I look forward to finishing this six pack (especially as the afternoons warm up).

Poured into narrow glass: color is gold, hazy, head is brighter white and presented about 1/2 inch thick and then dissipated to top and then to a ring, some spotty lacing.

Smell is lightly bready, biscuit, then some zippy citrus and light coriander.

Taste is similar with bread, biscuit, light citrus (less lemon like than aroma) with subtle spices, coriander dominant; a bit of bite to the flavor with less yeast like spiciness than others.

Mouthfeel is crisp, a bit of bite, not overly carbonated but just a bit sharper than some in the style.

Overall a good beer but a bit on the simplified end for a witbier - some wheat, some spice and some citrus notes.

This is a great refreshing Witbier. Lightly flavored Orange , with a delicious aftertaste. Very similar to Shock Top original, but without the sweetness. Highly recommend this beer

Tastes like a giant banana jammed into a wheat beer! By far one of my go to beers when I can't have an IPA.
