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.

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 7, 2005
Pours a hazy straw color and is topped by a wispy pale white head. The aroma is an interesting mix of bready yeastiness, earthy/ herbal coriander, and a hint of zesty lemon notes. The taste is just barely sweet up front which accentuates the spritzy, citrusy lemon acidity. This beer is quite light on the palate and is quite refreshing. There is sort of an austere, dry note in the finish which seems to come from the coriander. This is quite a nice example of a Wit, it is spicy and quenching with its light acidity. Again Avery proves that they can brew great standard gravity beer.

aracauna (3189) - Georgia, USA - JUL 6, 2005
Cloudy yellow looks almost juice like. The head is dense, and meringue like with good retention. The aroma is very wheaty, but seems low on the spicing. A good bit of phenol. The flavor seems more hefeweizen than witbier, although wheat in the banana esters. Soft, full mouthfeel. Good wheat beer, weak witbier.

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - JUL 5, 2005
Nice and sweet aroma. Strong spice flavor with a sweet banana and orange flavors. Like a hefe with a little something more. Very good, refreshing beer.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - JUL 3, 2005
Bottle - Pours a hazy, very pale yellow in color with a bright white head that quickly faded to a rim around the glass... some lacing. Aroma is a hefty malty/yeasty with some hints of citrus fruit. Flavor is of clove/banana like a weiss, but not as sour. Has the addition of the coriander and orange peel to provide the extra depth distinctive to a real Belgian Wit. It could use a bit more body, but this is good beer... I like it a lot...

shrubber85 (8526) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 3, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2006 Bottle. Clove and bubblegum aroma - fairly subtle. Pale yellow color - slightly cloudy with little head. Light clove, banana, and apricot with moderate acidity and mild carbonation and bitterness. Nice smooth drinking witbier on the light side.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5220) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2008 I am fond of this style of beer. Sampled this one from a 12 oz brown bottle. Poured a cloudy medium golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is sweet citrus. The flavor is strong spice - maybe pepper - and moderate fruitiness - almost standard orange and some banana. The finish is crisp and dry. Well done.

boto (1921) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JUN 21, 2005
12oz. bottle: This one pours a bit fizzy. It creates a small white head that goes away rapidly. The beer pours a cloudy straw yellow color. There are hints of corriander and orange to the nose. Also a hint of breadiness. It is quite tasty. It is a medium wheat body, with reserved tastes of coriander and orange. A twinge of sourness to the finish. Quite refreshing. Thanks, Jay

MaltOne (257) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2005
A refreshing brew. Nice summer cooler. Very pale straw color. Nicely coudy. White thin head. Aroma very faintly of coriander and orange. Same for the flavor. Body is average. Overall, very pleasant, not astonishing.

I’m surprised this one doesn’t rate higher. I really liked it. Pours light gold in color white a white head. Great aroma with the coriander and orange presenting themselves in a fairly subtle manner. The taste is crisp and very pleasant. Until he tasted this one, a friend of mine said that he doesn’t like beer at all. After the white rascal he likes beer. It leaves a great impression.
