COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A truly authentic Belgian style wheat or "white" ale, this Rascal is unfiltered (yup, that’s yeast on the bottom) and cleverly spiced with coriander and Curacao orange peel producing a refreshingly fruity thirst quencher.

A very pale yellow colour with a big frothy white head. Aroma is yeast and spice with a hint of malt and citrus hops underneath. Flavour starts sweet and yeasty with a citrus and spice middle and a dry acidic finish. This is the best American example of a Witbier out there. Damn good.

jgb9348 (4490) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2004
Pale yellow/golden colour with a medium-large bubbled head. Aroma of coriander seed, curacao and some fresh wheat. Medium-bodied; Spicey initial flavour of coriander seed, corn, wheat, curacao and lemon. Aftertaste shows bubble gum and cloves as well as a slight drying feeling. Overall, a very impressive witbier from a great brewery! I got this twelve ounce bottle from Phil (haddon90) in Knoxville, Tennessee...thanks again Phil!

Nice standard Belgian white. The coriander and orange were present just iike they should be. Pleasant aftertaste (a tad bitter). Very good.

Bottled. Good witbier. Had a good spice flavor to it. Was a little oranger in color and in taste than expected.

Hazy yellow gold color. Small sized white colored foamy head. Aroma is citrusy and spicy, hints of orange, coriander and yeast. A medium bodied Belgian wit. Malts are fruity and sweet. Fairly spicy with orange peel, coriander and clove being predominate. Fine lively carbonation. Light and refreshing. It kind of bounces of the tongue. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp and dry with a touch of alcohol bite. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Yet another winner from Avery.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2008 [bottle] Pours a cloudy golden straw color with a thick head and lots of lacing. Aroma of spice and wheat. I can definitely smell a hint of the yeast on the bottom of this one. Tastes just as it smells. Has a spicy, wheat bite with a slightly citrusy finish.

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - MAR 27, 2004
Pours a golden banana color with a very nice snow white head. Lacing is good thoughout. Pleasant spice, yeast and nutmeg aromas. Flavors are similar to the aromas. Nice spicy full flavor. Body is slightly watery but a good overall brew.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 17, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2004 Beautiful pour when poured in a St. Bernardus glass. Hazy yellow with all of the good stuff this style makes (spice, citrus & yeast). Had it on draft and it's not so good.

Beautiful coriander, orane nose. Pours a golden orange(ish) hue. Fantastic beer. A little heavy on the orange, but all around very tasty...

Appropriate for the syle pale golden color with an egg white head that diminishes rather quickly. Aroma is pleasant being mainly wheat and coriander with a hint of orange peel. Wonderful flavor. Lots of spices, orange peel, and a fantastic bone dry finish. This will be at the top of my list come summertime.
