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.

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!

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.

sfontain (802) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 31, 2004
Pale yellow with a medium, bubbly, white head. Aroma yeasty with cloves and banana. Flavor is similar: Mostly cloves and banana; a small hop hit through the finish, as the banana/clove lingers. I would tend to call this a hefeweizen rather than a witbier, but thatís just me... Mouthfeel is smooth and light but just barely sticky enough that it bugs me. Nothing great here, but solid all the same.

Ok beer on the flavor side but it smelled like amonia and natto. Flavor had some spiceiness but hard to identify.

I enjoyed this wit beer, but it is a little on the lighter side, I wish it was a bit more spice, but I still enjoyed it very much.

BeerandBlues2 (9596) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 10, 2004
Pale yellow to white with a thick white head, yeast sediment on the bottom. Wonderful wheat aroma with a faint citrus nose. Flavor is wheat, roasted malt and yeast. Palate is medium and fizzy.

Much lighter on the spices than other wits. Tastes more like a hefe at some points. Very white appearance, cloudy and bright. The flavor is again on the mild side with the spices, but with a heavy fruitiness from the yeast. Drinkable but nothing special.
