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.

kinda of wacky, the flavors seem the to contrasting. slightly spicy with white pepper, and coriander. tastes a bit harsh but drinkable enough.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared with barrios at woody’s. What the hell is a satsuma? Pours a very slightly hazy yellow with decent white head. Aroma of wheat and light citrus. Flavor is orangish, like a cream sickle at first but fades to a bitter orange peel. Not a bad brew, fairly unique, but not something I’ll seek out.

Pours a fading white head with a hazy, golden body. Smells of orange and coriander. Flavor is the same but not as intense as the aroma. Finish has a nice zest bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from my buddy Steve. Pretty decent American wit overall. Hazy golden pour with a lively body. Pretty nice mouthfeel, very drinkable, even if (as is depressingly predictable for American renditions) it gets a bit thin and syrupy towards the finish. Yeasty up front, sweet and spicy at the back. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz shorty bottle. Thick yellow orange, with a fluffy white head. The aroma is all Satsuma, lots of tangy citrus. Tangy orange taste as well, with some pleasant wheat to smooth it out. There is also some vanilla in the aftertaste. Overall a pretty good White beer, exceeding my expectations.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice golden color with a lot of carbonation and a big white head. Strong wheat and light citrus and spice on the nose. More body than I expected and not the crisp clean finish either. That is not bad just not what was expected. Nice, slight citrus flavor finishes nicely. Good Summer beer.
