Bottled. Hazy oranged-yellow with a large, bright-white head that is mostly lasting, leaving thin yet tight lacing. Orange peel nose dominates and the grains of paradise is noticeable but (thankfully) subdued. I can’t help but pick up a bit of bile in the nose as well - something about the acidity of the citrus fruits, I suspect. Brightly sweet flavor with spicy black pepper undertones. Clean, wheaty finish. Overall, a pretty standard wit.

Hazy yellow with a disappearing head. The orange and coriander hit the nose with a crisp tartness. The flavors of the coriander and the grains of paradise are sharp but the body is a bit thin. The aftertaste is that of a clean tart.

this beer was really bad. Right off the bat, the aroma was horrible and it was down hill from there. Palate was off, taste was horrible. Could be one of the worst attempts at a wit beer I’ve ever had.

From the "Spring Thaw" mix pack. Cloudy orange, decent white head. Pretty typical for the style, I guess. Some yeasty notes, some wheaty notes, some spicy notes. Perhaps a tad overbearing.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is like dirty dish water with pale malt, some citrus and spice, and strange yeast. The appearance is hazy gold with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. I am not really a fan it has some interesting qualities but it smells off and just isn’t yummy.

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Karl Strauss pint glass
From: VONS in Grantville, Calif. (San Diego)
Price: $13.97 w/ card ($17.99 regular) for the Spring Thaw Variety 12-pack
Misc.: Label said to enjoy before June
Poured a golden hazy color with about a finger of off-white head that went away almost immediately. No lacing on the sides, bad retention on the top.
Smelled the alcohol first, followed right away by cloves, icy sweet wheat, Cascade hops, citrus hops (tangerine, orange peel and lemon). Some unknown spices late.
Tasted pretty close to the smell. Got that icy, tangy wheat up front, followed by a sharp, sweet Cascade hops. Still got the citrus notes, mainly orange peel, orange and tangerine.
Light-to-medium body. Oily texture. Above average-to-average carbonation. Abrupt finish. Crisp, clean and refreshing.
Not a bad beer overall. Really great for a warm summer day. Crisp, clean and refreshing.
