nice cloudy body, with a decent foamy head. I hate the stupid orange they give you. The beer stands on its on without the fruit(it already has enough fruit and spice) pretty much a traditional white ale.I prefer Sam Adams’ white spring ale more, but not a bad brew.

Is this just a fancy coors light? Not much flavor, might be good with a slice of orange?

AdolfoCC (186) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - OCT 26, 2016
APARIENCIA: de color ámbar con algunos destellos amarillos a contraluz, se observa totalmente turbia pero se alcanza a ver cierta actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma color blanco de mediana retención, con burbujas compactas. AROMA: muy cítrica, la cáscara de naranja y el coriandro destacan, algunas notas a pan del trigo, y algo dulce como vainilla. SABOR: de inicio la acidez y ligero dulzor, seguido de las notas cítricas de la cáscara de naranja y coriandro es lo que destaca, algunas notas dulces del trigo y las maltas, pan, vainilla y algo por ahí herbal muy ligero; en el retrogusto queda un amargor ligero con cierta acidez persistente, además de algunas notas cítricas y dulces de forma tenue. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo ligero con una buena sensación sedosa en boca, mediana carbonatación. RESUMEN: agradable, nada destacable.

nihtila (2989) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 22, 2016
Bottle at home. Hazy pale golden. Nose is sugary sweet, malts, banana, lemon, corn, a bit artificial. Tastes continues mostly sugary sweet, light spices, wheat, banana esters, light coriander, bubble gum. Too sweet and I have a feeling the sweetness comes from something it should not.

YigSvartka (297) - Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 13, 2016
Cloudy, nearly opaque orange yellow colour with a near non existent white head. Certainly not undesirable, but also not particularly robust aroma with notes of yeast, banana, orange, and lemon. Extremely light bodied with a soft texture. Taste very much mimics the aroma and texture in that it is smooth and non intrusive consisting of orange, lemon, yeast, and banana with a slight sweet hop present during the finish. Enjoyable if one is fond of oranges.

Bierdimpfe (501) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2016
Hazy pale straw color with storming activity. Slightly foamy white 2 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with faint legs. Flavors of roasted sweet grains, lemon, corn, wheat, faint coriander and floral spices. Sugary with low sharpness. Oily full body with prickly carbonation. Light finish, short lingering sweet malts and soft spices. Okay freshness, a bit flat. Faint flavors and bland. Not a good witbier, overall the quality is mediocre.

rubyroo (87) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 9, 2016
Pours a thin layer of foam that recedes quickly. Appears hazy straw yellow. Taste is orange, coriander, lemon, wheat. No Belgian phenolics or yeast character. Palate is thin and somewhat sweet with prickly carbonation. Overall- Drinkable, but far from a world class witbier.

Nurmis (428) - Oulu, FINLAND - OCT 8, 2016
Draft at the Trinity Pub in London. Clouded orange yellow color. Fruity with orange and lemon, wheat malts. Not bad.

Lagerboy (1962) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 28, 2016
355 ml can as Belgium Moon. Slightly clouded orange yellow, fine white lasting foam. Faint aroma of coriander, wit spices and orange. Taste is quite thin, bland and aqueous, coriander, orange and lean wheat malt. Average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Limp crafty industrial swill. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

tekstr1der (389) - New Hampshire, USA - SEP 24, 2016
Despite its origin, I really enjoy this stuff. Pours a hazy golden with a finger of white foam that clings. Aroma is bread, bubble gum, and orange yeastiness. Flavor follows closely. Very balanced with just a bit rough in the finish.
