COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A truly authentic Belgian style wheat or "white" ale, this Rascal is unfiltered (yup, that’s yeast on the bottom) and cleverly spiced with coriander and Curacao orange peel producing a refreshingly fruity thirst quencher.

Aroma is laced with spices, hops, and malt but remains mild. The appearance is a yellowish white color with serious cloudiness. Flavor is complex with a light citrus flavor along with the obviously present coriander. The wheat and yeast also are very obvious. The hops are low key here. The only problem with this ale is that it has a medicinal taste that seriously hurts the flavor rating. Still its a good beer with a dry finish.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 13, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2006 Re-rate Feb. 3rd 06. <P> Aroma is quite musty and funky with hints of coriander and fresh bread. Hazy yellow in color with a mostly diminishing fluffy white head. Flavor is fairly funky with lots of spices mixed in and more of that fresh bread flavor from the yeast. Finish is thin, tangy and bitter. Better than I remembered, but still not something I’d go to often. <P> original rating. 2.7 <P> Bread and citrus aroma. Pale yellow and cloudy. Decent enough flavor of bready malt and yeast, but little spice and kind of thin.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Bottle, Cloudy yellow pour. There was something very earthy (to be nice) in the aroma and flavor, and I wonder if there was an infection in the bottle or batch. I will have to get another bottle to re-rate at a later date.

FlacoAlto (3800) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 7, 2005
Pours a hazy straw color and is topped by a wispy pale white head. The aroma is an interesting mix of bready yeastiness, earthy/ herbal coriander, and a hint of zesty lemon notes. The taste is just barely sweet up front which accentuates the spritzy, citrusy lemon acidity. This beer is quite light on the palate and is quite refreshing. There is sort of an austere, dry note in the finish which seems to come from the coriander. This is quite a nice example of a Wit, it is spicy and quenching with its light acidity. Again Avery proves that they can brew great standard gravity beer.

aracauna (3055) - Georgia, USA - JUL 6, 2005
Cloudy yellow looks almost juice like. The head is dense, and meringue like with good retention. The aroma is very wheaty, but seems low on the spicing. A good bit of phenol. The flavor seems more hefeweizen than witbier, although wheat in the banana esters. Soft, full mouthfeel. Good wheat beer, weak witbier.

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - JUL 5, 2005
Nice and sweet aroma. Strong spice flavor with a sweet banana and orange flavors. Like a hefe with a little something more. Very good, refreshing beer.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - JUL 3, 2005
Bottle - Pours a hazy, very pale yellow in color with a bright white head that quickly faded to a rim around the glass... some lacing. Aroma is a hefty malty/yeasty with some hints of citrus fruit. Flavor is of clove/banana like a weiss, but not as sour. Has the addition of the coriander and orange peel to provide the extra depth distinctive to a real Belgian Wit. It could use a bit more body, but this is good beer... I like it a lot...

shrubber85 (7554) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 3, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2006 Bottle. Clove and bubblegum aroma - fairly subtle. Pale yellow color - slightly cloudy with little head. Light clove, banana, and apricot with moderate acidity and mild carbonation and bitterness. Nice smooth drinking witbier on the light side.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4909) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2008 I am fond of this style of beer. Sampled this one from a 12 oz brown bottle. Poured a cloudy medium golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is sweet citrus. The flavor is strong spice - maybe pepper - and moderate fruitiness - almost standard orange and some banana. The finish is crisp and dry. Well done.

boto (1844) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JUN 21, 2005
12oz. bottle: This one pours a bit fizzy. It creates a small white head that goes away rapidly. The beer pours a cloudy straw yellow color. There are hints of corriander and orange to the nose. Also a hint of breadiness. It is quite tasty. It is a medium wheat body, with reserved tastes of coriander and orange. A twinge of sourness to the finish. Quite refreshing. Thanks, Jay
