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.

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 witbier’s, 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.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 22, 2006
Pours a cloudy amber with a white head. Smells of coriander, oranges, some cloves. Tastes of light coriander. Some banana notes on the finish. Easy drinking wheat beer. Nothing special.

iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - OCT 18, 2006
12oz bottle, no date. Pours a cloudy very light yellowish white with a quickly fading fizzy white head. Aroma of oranges, peppery spices, some sweet malts, and a tinge of yeast. Smells better than it tastes--the orange is subdued and there is slight pepper and yeast, though all tastes are blunted. There was a little bit of plastic as well. The aftertaste was kinda nasty--bitter with no other flavor, and not hoppy bitter. Medium bodied, light-medium carbonation. I was expecting from the taste for it to be more watery. This beer is kinda crappy.

This is just not my style of beer. I can’t stand the heavy corlander and orange peel flavor. I will keep trying until I find a Whitbier that I can like.

missing (72) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - OCT 16, 2006
Aroma is strongly of corriander with faint citrus notes. Appearance is of straw with tight long lasting head, no apparent lacing. Taste is dominated by corriander bite, lack of orange. Lacks spicy flavor associated with style.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - OCT 9, 2006
Hazy straw color,small white head that had a good hang time then faded slowly to leave a slight lace behind.The aroma was citrusy with a nice spicy side and a decent wheat showing.Citrusy spicy flavor with a slight yeasty side,very nice brew again from these guys and this would definately make a nice summer brew.

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - OCT 6, 2006
Hazy yellow straw with a fizzy but lasting pure white head. Coriander, and orange peel are easy to pick out in the aroma. The flavor is citric and spicy with a metallic tough as Philly pointed out. Very fizzy mouthfeel. Not something I can see buying again, but if offered I’ll sure take it.
