Harpoon UFO White

We spread out some birdseed on the balcony and the cat is intently watching the birds through the window. He has been known to run at them and then knock his head into the glass. Anyways, onto a beer that I know I’ve had before, but never reviewed. Let’s see how it was.

ABV: 4.8%

Style: Witbier

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Since we introduced UFO White in 2009, our brewers have hand-ground the spices used in this beer to make sure they were the proper consistency. That’s dedication! All that hard work seems to be worth it – UFO White is our fastest growing beer style. Light, crisp, refreshing UFO White follows in the tradition of spiced wheat beers that have been brewed in Belgium for well over 300 years. Brewed with orange peel and coriander, UFO White is the perfect choice for a summer’s barbecue, a night out with friends or any time you’re thirsting for something a little different. Like all UFO beers, we leave UFO White UnFiltered.”

Random: I wish I had the meow’s football sweater for him to wear during the game.

This beer poured with a three finger, pure white head that dissipated slowly and left a lot of lacing. The body was a cloudy, dark lemon yellow color with lots of carbonation visible. The nose had huge notes of orange slice and nothing else. The taste was very bright with lots of orange and wheat. There was very little spice to it. I didn’t get much in the flavor profile. The body was on the medium side of the style with high carbonation. It had a quick, yet bright orange finish. For $1.33 a bottle, this broke down to $.11 an ounce, which was very affordable for this easy drinking, introductory witbier. For what this was, it was really enjoyable and I would have it again.
