AROMA: Strong but faux orange aroma. Very sweet/candy-like. No actual esters. 8/12
APPEARANCE: Hazy pale yellow/amber. Large white soapy head. Little lacing. 2/3
Slightly soda-like orange flavor; seems faux. Sweet, but not as sweet
as aroma suggests. Coriander is virtual undetectable. Finishes with
astringent pith taste. No witbier authenticity, though. 12/20
Thin and crisp; watery texture. Body seems much lighter than its ABV.
Refreshing while in the mouth, but astringent finish is annoying. 2/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: This is Blue Moon/pedestrian quality. Should satisfy its target audience, but I’m unimpressed. 5/10
TOTAL SCORE: 29/50
