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.

Hazy beige/blondish, very light yellow. Sticky head, slimsy head. Nose of musky wheat, lemony citrus & ripe bananas & kiwi. Taste yeast & mild with a bite of spice & coriander. Finishes smooth. Good!

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - DEC 31, 2004
Hazy yellow color with small white head. Aroma is spicy. Tastes slightly spicy but fairly mellow. Kind of a boring beer. Finishes with a citrus yeasty feel in your mouth.

Kinz (3257) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 27, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2014 Hazy lemon yellow small head. Aroma of wheat and spicy coriander. Clear notes of orange, balanced coriander, and a yeasty wheat finish. A very good, by the book white ale. Nice. RERATE - Growler fill from Aw Shucks, about 9 years after my first rate. Everything stays exactly the same. Exactly as I remembered. Nice.

Medium sediment fills this yellow beer without a head. Slight orange-yeasty aroma. I got the corriander right away in the first taste, but it greatly mellowed with more. This settled into a more even-keeled wheat beer along the lines of American style wheats as the more distinct fruit flavors diminished.

Pours with a one-finger white head that fades to a ring leaving no lace. Pale cloudy, yellow color with the chunky bits on the bottom. Medium bodied. Nose is a faint yeast. Medium-strong carbonation. Starts and finishes with a crisp citrus flavor that is not overwhelming. $1.49 for a 12oz bottle from Liquor Barn Lexington, KY.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2004 Man I loved this beer! I didnít know such wheaty goodness was so close to home. Everything in this beer is imported. Made to be a Belgian witbier. pours like fermented, or cloudy lemonade. It has a huge white froth like a summer cloud. It holds the lace like a Victoriaís Secret model. Aroma of bread, saddle blanket, orange peel under a saddle. The orange opens nicely as a vaporous zing. Citrus. Deelish Saaz hops. This is goddamned refreshing! Lemon grabs the palate like a flashback as the beer goes down. Yeast provides a nice sourness that just brings down the house. So perfectly balanced. This is a short story about complexity. Not clean; thereís musty, dried orange peel, vanilla extract, a chalky mouthfeel. The whole beer seems geared to make this raw wheat funkiness a good tasting experience. And it is!

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 30, 2004
Poured yellowish cloudy with solid chunks and a white head...smell was cloves and coriander...maybe a hint of banana...taste was like a watered down White...spices were there, just a little thin...I donít think this is a good example of a white...a good training beer maybe...

Does Avery make a bad beer? If it does, I havenít tasted it yet. This is a fine example of the style. I wish they sold a corked version.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2004
Cloudy yellow with an orange influence. Hints of peanut butter, clove, coriander and orange peel are evident in the aroma. Mild spicing, dry on the palate, with a fairly strong wheat character and a serious and unique overall flavor. Light & fluffy. Notes of coriander, orange peel, peanut brittle and butter toffee. I especially like the finish. Iím glad I revisited this fine beer and I think I may pick up a 6 Pack, which is something I rarely do. Nice job Avery.
