Satsuma Harvest Wit

12 oz stubbie for the usual Abita presentation. Fairly low expectations like all Abita beers.
Weird yellow/green pour with a frothy but not dense head. Falls away quickly to leave no trace of lace or other sign that there was head present. Some haze.
Nose is Wit like with yeast notes and a very mild touch of spice. Disappointingly no orange in the smell. Bready overtones too.
Weak in the taste department. Very yeasty and bready but not in a good Belgian way. Again zero orange character which is a shame.
Weak, watery mouthfeel completes the disappointing picture.
I dunno a real big chance missed. Unlike many, I don’t dislike a fruity beer and I would have been happy to sample something with real orange character but this had literally none.
