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.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2005 ReRate: 03/22/05 – So, I’m the Brewery Rep, and I go to bars and drink the beers I sell them. Well… I’ve seriously taking a liking to this beer, especially on draft. Very floral with orange peel… notes of marigold flowers… lightly tart.. I’m really digging it all of a sudden!

For some strange reason, Witt is just not a style that I have yet come to really love. This Rascal poured a foggy golden straw colored body and a whipped white capped head. There were dense sheets of lacing draped all along the glass. The aroma and flavor bring a soft with notes of lemon, wheat, touch of orange zest, coriander, clove, rotting banana … the usual Belgian Witt ingredients. I don’t know what it is about Whitt that I just don’t care for… too yeasty? Too Tart and spicy? Too musty and doughy? For what it’s worth, this one was far better than many I’ve had!

Cloudy, light golden appearance, thin spritzy white head. Fresh, floral aroma with a little bit of fruit; nectarines perhaps. Tart, crisp flavor, notes hints of coriander and lemon. Mouthfeel is a bit dry, kind of makes you pucker. Very thirst quenching though after a morning’s hike along the Ninichik River in Alaska. Finishes strong.

Lighter fare, but that’s to be expectes with the style. Personally I would look forward to more spice even though I generally do go for it in beer, that Pierre Celis turned me around on this style. Very easy to drink. Clean and refreshing, but add the C&C to a higher degree and please me, please.

Hoegardenlike nose. Cloudy yellow color. Thinish standard wit. Lightbodied. Not very exiting.

Tejas (851) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 30, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2004 If I wanted grapefruit juice I would've gone to breakfast!!!!! An OK white that has plenty of citrus flavor. So much that a lemon or orange slice is overkill. Kind of cloudy in appearance which is typical for a white. Overall, I kind of like this one and might drink it again if it was 100 degrees in the shade. Typical of Avery beers; this is over-done.

pours a pale hazzy yellow. with a creamy head thas subsides then ingers jut on top of the surface.aromas of bread, wheat, yeast some banana and an orange component. bread, nuts wheat, lemony sourness with a drying bitterness in the finish still has some blanche funk flavors and less clean than some other american examples(thats a good thing). still has the american overboard on hops thing. a little bitter for a blanche. it detracts too much from the wheaty sourness.

thegreenrooster (3082) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 21, 2004
Pours a nice cloudy yellow. Aroma is very creamy. Flavor is coriander and other types of citrus. Very spicey mouthfull at the end. Noty bad but better out there, say in Belgium.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - AUG 12, 2004
Thin and ultra light colored. Nose of corn adjunctness - yep, too sweet and artificial from the get go? A tad bit of pepper, certainly a very wheaty wit (thinly sour). Uninspired to say the least. Much better at the end with the yeast pour.

screigh (423) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 10, 2004
Pours a hazy golden color (white). Decent soapy looking head with lasting power. No real lacing but it sticks to the glass slights when it moves around. Aroma is of a camp fire. Taste is typical of the style, slight orange hints and the spices again remind me of that camp fire. While this is a good beer I think there is much better to be had at this price point or even cheaper.
