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.

Good looking Wit beer. Coriander is the first thing noticed, slight lemon in nose and taste. Lacks a little sweetness that I would look for in this kind of beer. The more I drink it the better I like. Itís Great for the hot early afternoons. This Brewery makes great Belgian style beers.

Bottle: Clear yellow (kept the yeast in the bottom of the bottle)with a long lasting foamy white head and oustanding lace. The aroma has notes of coriander, clove, orange zest, wheat and grains, perfumy and dusty yeast esters. The taste starts fruity and spicy with a dash of bitters on top. Undertones of wheat and lemongrass on the finish. Lively feel and dry finish. Refreshing as the style should be, but it still lack the kick that the best in genre have. Quaffable Witbier and would drink it again.

Perfectly acceptable and refreshing summertime wit. Not a lot going on, but thatís the style. Clean and thirst quenching.

Slightly hazy yellowish golden body with a thin, white head. An interesting, fairly unique aroma of sweet oranges and lemons, coriander, yeasty bread, banana and some other light spices. It took a while for the aroma to take shape, but once it kicked in, things were good. The body is fairly light and nice for the summer. The flavor is lightly sweet and really fruity. The oranges, lemon zest, fruity esters, coriander, fresh bread, and banana all make for a wonderfully tasty beer. The finish is light and clean. While it took a while for this to grow on me, grow it did. A nice, tasty summer beer that easy drinking AND has great flavor.

Nice, fruity aroma. Light yellow, cloudy looking beer with foamy white head. Good flavor, sweet taste with some fruitiness. Overall good beer. Very easy to drink.

(draft) Hazy lemon-yellow body topped by white head. Aroma is some sweet, wheat, light lemon. Taste is medium sweet, wheat, tart lemon. Light body, light acidity. Nice, drinkable wit.

This beer pours lighter than any beer Iíve ever seen. It was amost white comming out of the bottle adn settled to a very pale yellow. It gets bonus points for the original color. There is a definate spice characteristic and some yeast and citrus present. It leaves a slightly chalky and dry feeling and finish in the mough. The flavor doesnít seem all that complex, but does have some wheat and citrus peaking through. Overall it was a little too plain for me.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 17, 2004
ery pale yellow color, yearning toward white, with a beautiful head, pure head, fresh and frothy head. The nose is everything Iíd expect from a witbier, or any decent imitation, alert, spicy, citric, a touch dry, some lemon, a show of orange, and overall, inviting and appetizing. Taste: decent hops at first, nice wheat texture, very light in body, and extraordinarily drinkable. I could kill a ton of these in the summertime. (I can only admire that attribute now as the snow falls!) Itís lightness and smoothness is itís perfection, a bit more lemon than orange in the flavor, very thirst-quenching and full of zing!

thedm (4887) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAY 15, 2004
This bottled brew from the BW3 in Fort Wayne, IN poured a medium sized head of white colored fine top medium sized bubbles that left behind a fair lace. The body was a softly carbonated transparent weak yellow pee color. The aroma was mildly malty and hoppy while favoring the hops. The mouth feel was smooth with no bite and a mild tingle. The flavor was malty and contained a few wheat notes.

For this style, it is decent...as for my tastes, I probably wonít try this again. Luckily I had a 10 oz. tasting from my local bar who had it on tap .
