Canette de 12 oz partagée lors d’une dégustation entre amis. Arôme: Odeur de coriandre avec une pointe d’agrumes. Apparence: La couleur est orangée voillée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de pamplemousse avec une pointe de coriandre. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de banane en arrière goût. (Rating #6463)

My Bottom Line:
This citrusy Witbier interpretation develops a tart touch upon delicate spices and wheat.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the murky yellowish beige.
-Carbonation is soft, but perhaps too low for the style.
-Spice dosage is intelligent. This is not a coriander soup, unlike lots of American-made Witbiers.
-Drinkability is high.
-Mouthfeel is slender and built for big gulps.

Pours a hazy gold from a tap. Aroma of classic wheatiness, maybe some banana and grapefruit. Classic witbier flavor, yeasty, sweet malts, noble hops. Okay, but a little unbalanced, kind of a first attempt at witbier kind of thing. Okay beer.

It has little to no carbonation. I feel like they found a checklist for summer wheat beers and decided to make a wine cooler out of it. At $12 a six pack, the beer prices it self near Algash and Avery. To quote Jimmy the Cab Driver from Mtv, you are no Algash or Avery. Blue Moon and Shock Top are markedly better. You cannot shove an Orange into a bottle of Arbor Mist and call it a beer. If you like this beer, I question your existence.

16 oz. pour at Kilkenny’s. Pours a slightly cloudy straw color with a one finger white head. Not gorgeous, but appropriate for the style. Oranges, lemons and wheat on the aroma. Just hints at Belgian yeast. Light spices. Light bodied and well carbonated. Great summer sipper.

Pours pale amber. Nose is malt and Belgian spice. Taste is mildly sweet and pleasing. A little thin. Soft carbonation. Tasty and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

malrubius (2241) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - APR 4, 2015
Can from Brewtopia. Very pale cloudy yellow. Spicy coriander aroma with citrus and wheat tang. Mild tropical fruit peach and pineapple sweetness with tangy wheat and spicy fairly finish. Soft mouthfeel. Very light body. Could use just a touch more body but I like a light White. If I can get this at a reasonable price, it is a leading candidate to replace A-B/Inbev Hoegaarden because I try not to buy anything from those douchebags.. Very refreshing. Excellent.

From the can. Pale yellow pour with big carbonated white fizzy head. Toasted pale malts, orange and citrus, and spice on the nose. Lighter body. Like the aroma, I get the toasted bread and biscuit with a nice citrus mainly orange, zing to finish. One of those beers that defines the style.

Tap in Boston. Pours cloudy yellow with nice white head. Also nice lacing. Nose is floral with spices. Taste is biscuit, oats and citrus.
