Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Smell is wheaty and slightly floral and lemony. Nice smelling beer. Taste is citrusy, slightly tart, wheaty and smooth. Pretty refreshing and probably Abita’s best beer in my opinion. Medium body and carbonation. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, pale yellow body with a thin, white head.
Smell: Nose of unmalted wheat and raw, wholesome oats with solid notes of generously added spices and, of course, the Satsuma (coming across as scent of orange and lemon).
Taste: Moderately tangy wheat rounded out slightly by some smooth, crisp oats and a touch of overall sweetness. Pinch of earthy spices along with the sweetish citrus Satsuna taste. Light bitterness midway through. The wheat and the fruit carry you effortlessly to the drying, crisp finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body, though, at times, it’s flirting with being watery. Medium-high carbonation.
Drinkability: Pleasantly refreshing and goes down far too easy. It’s by no means an outstanding wit, but, in my opinion, it’s one of the better Abita beers available.

This is a lovely wit. The pour is cloudy pale yellow with a nice white head. The orange flavor is just fine; fresh tasting and not overpowering. It’s a fine drink for a hot summer evening.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Short 12oz bottle. Aroma of a can of mandarin orange slices in sweet syrup. Some light pepper, coriander and distant wheat. Light haze, light pale orange color. Thick creamy white head. Flavor of wheat and a hint of citron. Watery body, like most Abita. Finishes with a unique bitterness. Like chewing on a clementine peel with a hint of corrugated cardboard box. Overall, very refreshing for these summer months. I could drink the full 6pk of these.

The aroma is quite nice with citrus, malt, wheat, and spice. The appearance is hazy gold with an average head. The flavor is like the aroma with a bitter watery finish. The palate is smooth. Overall a refreshing but not fantastic beer.
