UPDATED: FEB 18, 2015 Not very exciting but itís a good wheat ale without much anything wrong with it. It could be smoother, earthier, but thatís about it. The real setback is the fact that this tastes like most other Americanized Belgian Whites. That said, Iím pretty sure I wouldnít be able to turn this down if I was offered one.

White Lantern channels the classic witbier style while subtly tweaking certain aspects adding an amped up fruitiness that works well. Medium bodies with sprtizy carbonation cleanses the palate between each sip. Coriander is strong in the fade. The nose is somewhat vegetal, however.

P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth citrusy finish.

Lemon lime and coriander nose. Hazy golden, medium head. Fizzy . Stale malt and unmalted barley flavor, wheat bread crust, lemon, coriander. Spicier and fruitier than Shock Top, maltier than Blue Moon, eerily similar quality though. I have defended Boston Beerís craft brewery status for years against those who suggest they should no longer be considered craft. Despite itís size, Boston Beer has continued to make quality beer in a variety of interesting styles. This beer, however, makes me at least consider if they havenít sold out.
