COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A truly authentic Belgian style wheat or "white" ale, this Rascal is unfiltered and cleverly spiced with coriander and Curacao orange peel producing a refreshingly classic ale.

355ml can from Systembolaget. Hazy pale yellow, fluffy white head and little lacing. The aroma of spices, lemon, green apple, bread dough. Medium body and a fizzy mouthfeel, it is quite high carbonated. Taste got citrus peel, banana, pepper, coriander, yeast. Finish is a bit spicy.

Witbier is one of my favorite summer styles (and one of my favorite style, period for that matter). When done right it can be amazingly delicious. When done well itís still pretty good. Avery White Rascal falls into the latter category. A solid, to-spec Belgian White for sure, but not an amazing one.

I poured a 12oz can into a goblet. It was canned on 6/22/15 and cost $2.95 ($0.25 per ounce).

Appearance: Classic pale yellow hue with translucent body. Not carbonation is visible, nor is sediment. Pours to a large, white, pillowy head which laces and retains beautifully.

Smell: A light fruity aroma of bananas and orangepeel with some floral notes. Not quite as pungent as Iíd prefer, though.

Taste: There are certain flavor components I expect and want in a witbier and this has them all. A light wheaty body up front, but with not especially sweet (nor tart). The second half contains most of the flavor in the form of citrusy orangepeel and a light coriander spice. Not much in the way of hop flavor or bitterness. Itís a simple, repetitive palette and the taste never grows old; my only complaint is that itís a little too mild. Iíd think a fresh can like this would be bold and peppery, but itís surprisingly tame. This would make a great starter witbier, though.

Drinkability: A beer like Avery White Rascal is exactly what I want in the warmer months. Itís refreshing after every swig and leaves a clean aftertaste. The mouthfeel is quite soft and smooth Ė almost creamy, though it also feels a bit watery and under-carbonated. Iíd prefer more zesty Belgian effervescence (which is more common in bottle-conditioned brews). It doesnít seem to quite take full advantage of its 5.6% ABV, as this feels like something in the sub-5% range. Iím sure no one will have a problem putting back a couple of these.

Score: 7/10

12oz can. Pours a cloudy deep straw with a white head. Spicy, citrusy aroma, cloves, phenols, yeast, wheat. Off-dry, medium bodied, low bitterness, creamy CO2. Spicy, citrusy taste, cloves, lightly hoppy, wheat, phenols, yeast. Easy drinking, nothing special, but very well made. (2015-07-17) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz can. Canned 11/25/14. Courtesy of olio. Cheers! Hazy yellow color with a small white head. Sweetness, yeast, mild wheat, spices and some fruitiness in the aroma. The flavor is dry malty wheat, sweetness, mild fruits and some yeast. A bit unbalanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at ibrew wired. Aroma is typical Belgian White. Creamy, bit herbal bit of wheat, light citrus. Maybe a touch sweet for me without much heft.

On tap at the Blue Canyon B&G in Golden, CO, this pours hazy straw into the glass with a light soap head that leaves light soapy lacing. The nose has wheat and orange rind. Flavors are light wheat, coriander, orange peel and light spices, and finish with curt peel and spice. Refreshing and light-bodied, this is a perfect summer brew for the holiday heat. Good job. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mild aroma of wheat and coriander. Color looked like a Coors Light. Watery palate. Flavors of wheat, orange and coriander. Meh.
