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.

Pours cloudy yellow with foamy white head that quickly diminishes and leaves no lacing. The nose is coriander and lemon peel. The flavor has more lemon, orange peel, allspice, coriander, and a bit of a musty or plasticy taste. Not horrid but not a great Witbier.

This is terrible -- pours a haz neon yellow slight clove and citrus taste, over carbonated. And to think I passed over Allagash to give this one a try. Tastes like what I would imagine fermented ICYHOT would taste like. Blech!

Poured a hazy whitish yellow. Earthy aroma with sweet oranges. Light sweet orange flavor and some spicey notes.

Iíve had this on several occations, but the rating is from a roving keg at the Avery 12th anniversary party. (Thanks guys! I was pretty stinking hot.) Pour is cloudy as can be, the color of natural suede leather, with a big billowy white head that settles in rocky cloud-like lumps. Aroma is yeast. Some kind of champagne tartness and low level citrus, but...mainly yeast. Flavor? Also yeast. Pretty dry with a bit of wheat sparkle. Nicely tart and refreshing on the palate. A monomaniacal ode to yeast. Not very complex, but the perfect beer to prove to somebody that a witbier is actually nicer with food than champagne.

Bottle, from Julioís. Ok nose, sweet. I get an initial yeasty small that quites down, then wheat, orange. Hazy golden color, small head that faded quickly. Sweet flavors, like aromas , without yeasty part, with the coriander standing out. Little banana too. Thin body, Lite creamy mouthfeel, spicy sweet finish. This one didnít excite me, though Iím not that familiar with the style.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 2, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2006 Pours a very light yellow and hazy with a mostly receding white head. A hazy pour. The color of lemonade, very light, perhaps tan. Aroma of orange peel and coriander. Taste is spicy with a mix of orange, pepper, and wheat. Body is highly carbonated. Interesting...

hopdog (9018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2005
Poured a light to medium and hazy golden color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of oranges, bananas, and spices. Tastes of orange peel, spices and some wheat. Leaves with a dry finish.

12 oz. bottle into tulip. Purchased and sampled sometime in 2004. Wheaty, fruity smell with corn and pineapple. Skunk and yeast aromas right out of the bottle go away after a short time. Hazy golden yellow with a white froth head (not too large, fully diminishing). Good flavor, but lacks layers. Initial fruitiness is pineapple with some subtle cherry, finish is sweet like the candy stick in Fun Dip but short. A little biting in the acid and corriander. Good medium body and carbonation. Lacking complexity, but overall refreshing.

Bottle poured a cloudy white with a white head. Aromas of citrus and coriander. Flavor was orange peels and spices with a lightly bitter finish.

I couldnít detect any of the orange peel or coriander flavors. It was a little too "yeasty" and lack a lot of definition. The appearance was great for a witbier and had a nice head in comparison to others, but it just lacked flavor and substance. I also agree with the previous review that it does come off with hints of medicinal flavors.
