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

I hope i did not get an "off" bottle here. I say this because this is not a really attractive looking beer at all, strange pale yellow looking and hazy with a small white head..not pleasing to the eye. Aroma is very plain of lemon mostly with a slight pepperyness. The taste has hints of esters/bananas a little spice and mosatly lemon. a little malt is detected. Very thin on the palate not exciting at all. I found this dissapointing..I know wits arent the biggest and most flavorful of beers but this was rather limp and pedestrian.

bottle. pours an opaque, dirty white-golden body with a medium-sized white head that slowly recedes but never really disappears. aroma is pleasant on all accounts - mainly orange and lemon zest but also a good kick of coriander. very smooth mouthfeel with typical spicy flavours and a comfortable sour lemon twist. also a little bit of sweet banana flavour in the finish which was a nice surprise. I really enjoyed this.

Very cloudy yellow, with a white head. Aromas are spice, yeast, and citrus. Flavors are yeast, spice, and some citrus. Fairly thin body. Thanks to matta for this extra.

Interesting aroma. Smells medicine like. Oooh, this one is not good. Funky aftertaste which tastes bad. Putrid! Almost a drain pour. Worst beer Iíve had in a long time and by far the worst beer Iíve had from Avery.

Likeburning (149) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - FEB 26, 2006
This cloudy yellow beer had a thin white head. The aroma is citrysy and the flavor is the same, plus a little spice. A little watery though. All in all a pretty middle of the road Witbier.

Shag (2637) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 25, 2006
A murky yellow appearance with a moderate white head. A spicy lemon aroma with some orange peels and coriander. The flavor is quite citrusy but a little overspiced for my liking. It has a hefe type quality with some bananas and clove present as well. Overall a pretty good beer.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2011 Aroma has dry wheatey notes with a dusty coriander overtone. Mid-sized white one finger head. Mouthfeel is gritty and drying. Very nice spicy finish rounds things out. A bit more flavorful than a Hoegarden, but not as refined.

Cloudy pale yellow with a big white head. Aroma has some spiciness, citrus and wheat. Taste of clove, yeast, banana and orange peel. Nice mouthfeel, round and creamy. Well made example of a witbier.

this was a poor representation fo a witbier. But it was the worst Iíve had and Iím still a fan of Avery. Even thought I feel theyíve missed the mark it this style.
