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.

12 oz bottle served cold into a pint glass. Enjoyed and the in-laws for a New Year's Day dinner.

Appearance - pours a cloudy orange color, with a decent finger of white head that has good staying power. Some rings of lacing around the edges of the glass.

Smell - aromatic with orange and coriander dominating, but also a hefty dose of wheat comes to the nose. Some subtle spicing and powdery banana too.

Taste - pretty much like the nose with wheat instead taking the lead before the coriander and orange and banana make an appearance. The powdery doughiness in the nose doesn't show up in the flavor.

Mouthfeel - good level of carbonation, light body easy to drink. An accessible Belgian wit that coincidentally is among the better ones I've tried.

Overall - a well crafted and delicious wit, certainly worth a try. There's not really anything here that hasn't been done before, but it's executed very nicely.

From the bottle, it pours a hazy amber with a quickly dissipating head. Fruity spice tickles the nose. The flavor is light and refreshing, with the coriander and orange peel coming through. Enjoyable.

The two single bottles of this I purchased had a somewhat serious "soapy" finish. Could have been better.

Wow! A great craft on the classic Belgian Witbier, with the unfiltered characteristic, and enhanced citrus aromas and flavors, this my favorite offering from Harpoon.

Witbier is my fave so had to try when I saw at local bodega.

Smell is sweet to me like fruit cheesecake.
Super light and refreshing, even thirst quenching. Goes down smooth, flavors- orange, yeast, coriander and malt. Its a bit spicy and overall sweet, crisp and light.
