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.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 21, 2004
This wit pours with a cloudy pale yellow body topped by a thin white head with a good amount of lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet yet more bitter and yeasty with a slight banana note. The flavor is slightly sweet, bitter and yeasty wtih slight banana notes and a touch of lemon. Light bodied, crisp and slightly dry.

Sven (229) - Lancaster, California, USA - APR 12, 2004
Pale straw colour with quickly disappating white head, decent lacing. Aroma is citrusy and spicy. Full bodied mouthfeel. Fairly spicy with orange peel and coriander being predominate. Lively carbonation, light and refreshing. Crisp, pleasant finish.

MrRomero (1974) - Nolanville, USA - APR 10, 2004
Pours cloudy yellow with a thick fluffy white head. Light banana notes, light citrus and lightly yeasty. Could use a little more flavor all the way around.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2004
12oz Bottle No Date. Poured a cloudy lemon drop yellow with a sizable white head that settled down quickly. Aroma is strong with yeast,clove and citrus. Body is effervescent and soft. Flavor is wheaty with notes of coriander and yeast. Although not as good as say Allagash, this is still a very good Witbier for an American brewer to churn out. Refreshing and flavorful.

DocLock (7703) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2004
Pours light straw colored, with decent head, and turbid (I checked the label, and it is indeed unfiltered). Nice aromas of orange, coriander, and slight yeast. Tastes very creamy, slightly dry, overtones of hops, citrus, banana, and yeast. Finishes smooth, dry, with even more banana. Very complex, very good.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2004
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 (4636) - 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.

beerguy101 (5277) - Newark, California, USA - MAR 29, 2004
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.
