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.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2006
Bottle. Pours a hazy off-yellow color with a sliver of a head. Nice perfumey nose, banana with spice and some citrus/sour. Flavor is a continuation of the bananas with coriander and lemon. Just when you are really liking this one it has and odd, metallic/bitter taste right at the finish. A nice wit with yummy white beer flavors upfront only to fall off in the end.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2006
Light in color with a fruity aroma. Taste is light, but weak. Finishes very lightly with no major aftertaste. Iím not a big fan of the style, but I was hoping for something a little better than average. This doesnít quite do it for me, but a nice hot day drink.

MrBunn (2677) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2006
Aromas of coriander, cloves, yeast and lemon over a dirty straw body with a smallish head that dies down pretty fast. Flavor is similar, but much weaker than I would expect from something that touts itself as a Belgian Wheat. This leaves a very crisp and drinkable beer and the spicesreally dominate flavor.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2006
Itís got the classic wit look, hazy pale straw with a thick head. The aromaís a bit lemony, somewhat blocking the wheat and coriander. Nice lively mouthfeel. The spicing comes through more in the flavor, coriander and zest of orange with light peppers and a touch of banana. Quite a dry finish. Refreshing.

jercraigs (9537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2006
Bottle. Hazy pastel yellow with a small white head. Yeasty aroma, very mild notes of lemon and hints of fruity orange. Light mild lemon citrus in the flavour, pleasant yeastiness and notes of sweet orange at times. Average but smooth wheat palate. A very nice wit that will not disappoint fans of the style. 7/3/7/3/15

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - AUG 18, 2006
Hazy yellow, medium white head settling to a fine white ring that lasted to the bottom of the glass. LIght citrus and grassy aroma. Nice medium body with a fine, light carbonation. Some toffee sweetness is balnced by some spicy bitterness, leaving the finish dry, but short. I thought this was a pretty good Witbier.

WeeHeavySD (3367) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 14, 2006
Bottle @ Witís End in San Diego, 8/10/06. Pours with a similar look of a light lager, yellowy, with a fizzy head. Looks howeving can be decieving, this is a nice light and sweet belgian styled wheat.

12 oz. bottle from Morganís. Bottle conditioned. Drank on 7/24/06. Nice looking wit. Cloudy, nice yellow, lemony color. 1+cm. creamy white head. Drops to a nice layer of foam. Nice lacing. Aroma - banana, cloves, and spice. Belgian yeast and I get a hint of the corriander and orange. Fairly strong. Flavor - Decent level of bitterness on the tongue. Smooth, light cold and refreshing in the middle. Banana, clove, orange, and spice flavors come out in the swallow and in the end. They are pretty light though, not overbearing at all. Palate - nice and light, refreshing. Higher than avg. carb. Overall - good. Not my favorite style, but this one is good. Nice and light, and the spice isnít overdone at all.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 6, 2006
In the bottle. Cloudy pale yellow with a medium white head. Has the aroma of pepper and coriander. Foam rings encircle the glass. Lemon and pepper flavors immediately register on the tongue, but the palate is a bit chalky. Wheat flavor is strong in this with little balancing sweetness. Lemon is the big deal here as it is tongue tingly and pronounced throughout.
