COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A truly authentic Belgian style wheat or "white" ale, this Rascal is unfiltered and cleverly spiced with coriander and Curacao orange peel producing a refreshingly classic ale.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2007 1st rating (bottle) Sparkly yellow champagne appearance. Highly carbonated though the head evaporates quickly. Piquant yeasty aroma with a prickly pleasant mouthfeel, but flavor underdelivers. Light-medium bodied with prickly peripheral yeastiness and a mild sour finish. 2nd rating (tap). What a difference on tap makes! My final rating will be an average of both ratings as there was such a profound difference between tap and bottled versions. The tap version champagne white/blonde, with piquant coriander, zesty citrus, almost lemony, yeast springing into the nose. Piquant, smooth, and relatively light bodied, but flavorful and giving the impression of a higher ABV than you would expect. Perfect on the palate and an American Style Belgian Witt that would be hard to top in the states.

Pours cloudy white with a small white head that quickly dissapates. Aroma is mostly wheat with some corriander spice. Flavor is light, even for a witte, but pleasant. Corriander and some orange are present along with bread like wheat flavors. Finish is yeasty, but enjoyable. A good light drinking beer.

Bottle:Cloudy, dull yellow color. Whe it is being poured it actually looks white. There is a small fizzy white head. I hate the aroma on these witbiers - it smells like a bunch of egg farts got stuck in a rubber factory. You can definitely taste the coriander in the flavor but not the orange peel as much - maybe in the aftertaste??? I just donít prefer this style. I feel like I walked into a tire store and started licking the tires. Still, itís from a quality brewery, so it gets and extra point. Thanks Indiana_Red.

IndianaRed (3681) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 8, 2006
Bottle pours a cloudy, white/very pale yellow. Small short lived white head but fine and remarkebly lasting lacing. That classic belgian wit aroma, funkt\y and spicy. Flavor is similar. That crazy Curacao orange peel gives it away. So obvious. Works well though. Thin light feel and lively carbonation. A decent example of a style I cant get into.

Color is unusually white and the aroma is thin. However, the flavor really jumps out. It is full of lemon, orange, and coriander. Delicious! The flavor doesnít quite hold up as it warms but this is a great wit. It is crisp and clean and leaves you wanting more.

oldno7 (137) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2006
Pours a very light fizzy yellow (looks like fresca) with a thick white head. Aroma is very yeasty with some lemon and orange peel nose. Flavor mostly consist of yeast, also notes of fruit, citrus and mandarin. Not too bad.

Sampled from 12 oz bottle on 10/25/2006 at the Junedale Beer Klub meeting... Pale gold color. No head. Light wheat and citrus flavor. Some spiciness as well. Fizzy and a bit thin. Need to revisit in the future...

Back to back with the Unibroue example, this is a bit better in my book. The aroma was much fruitier and very yeasty. Flavor of coriander and orange is well blended with the yeast character.

12oz bottle: Pours a golden yellow color, slightly cloudy. Smallish head, white, lasting. Citrusy hoppy aroma. Medium-strongish aroma. Fizzy strong citrus taste, hops. Clean aftertaste-fresh tasting. Watery light taste.

I am a big fan of witbierís, and this is certainly an excellent choice for a midrange witbear. It smells of citrus herb and tastes like many witbiers, with a hint of fruit. Nothing spectacular though.
