Can. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a white head. Aroma is bready. Very light with some spiciness and citrus flavor ending with a touch of hopes. I like this one on a hot day but it is pretty light and not a lot of flavor.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle. Code date of 3/15. Appearance: pale golden with a slight haze.
Aroma: Orange peel dominates, with a hint of apple. Almost champagne like.
Taste: Light maltiness with bready notes. Orange peel and citrus dominate the flavor, with a slight spice from the coriander. Low bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Light body with high carbonation.
Finish: lingering coriander spice with a hint of orange peel.
Overall: With the orange peel and coriander I assume this is a Belgian witbier inspired American wheat. This manages to hit that hybrid of style, but seems to be lacking an increased body that would enhance te complexity of the beer. It feels too thin and light, with a carbonation and aroma reminiscent of champagne.

It was fine but not as good as I hope it would be. Probably better in the summer on the beach than the middle of winter. Color and foam good but the taste was a bit weak for a Hefe.

Not that special of a Belgian Wit. A hazy yellow pour. Aroma has some citrus and wheat. Taste is a mix of citrus, wheat, and some spices. A somewhat dry aftertaste form the wheat/yeast and light citrus.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Man, not that good. Faint to no aroma and this style usually has some great scents. Cloudy and light yellow but not in the way one expects with a wheat beer. Palate was average and light. Flavors were muted. Hints of wheat and some spice but in a light-version kind of way. They have much better beers.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poor example of a witbier with an overly sweet citrus start that turns a little tart and funky. Finish is felt rather than tasted, which is not a pleasant experience.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body under a small fizzy white head. The nose is slightly fruity with some orange and coriander, light wheat, and a bit of yeast. The flavor is fairly bland, just a light orange note with minimal yeast influence and slightly sweet finish. Light bodied and kinda flat on the tongue with minimal carbonation. Pretty bland stuff, even for a Wit.
