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.

Paid $1.50 for a 12-oz bottle. Very cloudy pale yellow with a 2" head. Not much of an aroma, but what’s there is very lemony. Flavor is full of tartness, but no defined lemon or other citrus flavor. Light on the spices and almost no finish.

12z bottle. Hazy and yellow green, kinda like lemonade (yeah, someone else said it first). It’s the closest thing that I could find to the hue. Anyway, minimal ring of head and a dominant yeasty nose. Along with that is a definite citrus and dough aroma, then floralness and orange zest. Lively mouthfeel, with a definite grainy citrusy flavor. Puckering citrus dominates, but a slight dryness permeates in the finish from the hops. The hops also have a floral note. There is a spicy note at some point in the profile. Great flavors, but a little light in body.

Pours to a huge foamy white head atop a light hazy light golden body. Nice lacing. The aroma is a heavily spiced coriander, wheaty, and yeasty beer. The flavor is spicy orange and has a strangeness to it. Watery and bland mouthfeel.

Ughsmash (7354) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 7, 2005
Bottle. Whitish-golden pour with a light layer of white head. Some sediment, and quite a bit of carbonation rising. Aroma of bananas and cloves, cellar mustiness, and a hint of orange. Wheat, citrus, and sweat were the bulk of the flavor, but there was quite a bit of sweetness in there that I didn’t much care for. Somewhat watery mouthfeel, but still had the wheaty, orangey, tingly feel that I like from the style.

segfault (103) - Centennial, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2005
Frothy white head, and a cloudy orangey pour. Aroma of mild orange, esters, and coriander. Fairly thin body for the style. Light sweetness , dry and watery with soft carbonation, finish is a little chalky. Serviceable, but not a great example of Witbier. Avery could do better...

SDalkoholic (2229) - Linda Vista, California, USA - OCT 28, 2005
Murky appearance thats easily visible through. Kind of looks like lemonade with a lot of sugar mixed in. Head is a lasting cover of white foam but will remain thin. A notice of orange in the aroma and also kind of smells like a flower that has been picked and is a day old. I can only find a few flavors worhty of mention; light dry orange peel, coriander, wheat, spice, and the taste of sweat. Nice to see a Belgian white put into market by a loveable brewery.

A very good wit. They got the color right; heavily carbonated with a small head, but it lacks sediment. Sour citrus and wheat in the aroma. Flavor of light spices, sweet fruit, and citrus, but not sour at all. On the light side. Sweet wheat finish with a grapefruit aftertaste.

Surprisingly lite/white in color, I guess the name fits. Nice spicy nose, with complex flavor and a crisp palate.
