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.

SpringsLicker (3172) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 26, 2005
Pours a frothy white head over a clear light yellow body. Lemon spice aroma. Lightly sweet but very subdued flavor. Light palate, thin and lacking in depth. Very disappointed in this one, I have had some other witbiers that were not bad and this is way below Avery’s usual high level of standards.

Swirled the bottle to get all the yeast out. Very light colored and extremely hazy- opaigue. Modest head which fades slightly. Aroma is mostly orange and citrus, then bubblegum, then yeasty and has hints of wheat, clove and vanilla. Tastes slightly acidic and tart with yeasty flavors like bubblegum and clove. Finishes a little dry and only slightly bitter.

Bottled: Yellow, cloudy, small white head, lacing, spicy and citrus nose, clove and lemon, yeast, flavors of yeast, coriander, and some lemon. Lightly bitter finish. Decent

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 22, 2005
Cloudy pale yellow. Creamy head and both stringy and spotty lacing. Nose full of musky wheat and lemon citrus. Coriander and nice fruity esters. Doughy yeast. Sourness throughout. Lemons again with more yeast and dough. Spices come through a bit more muted. Grassy hops and more wheat. Nice body and a fruity sour finish. Good example of the style.

Bottle. Maybe I had a bad bottle but here goes... Appearance- average Nose- Had to try to detect one but when I did I was in denial. Flavor- Tasted like someone stuffed one of my dirty gym socks in my mouth. Finish- (dry heave) then a Budweiser like aftertaste. One of the few distinct unpleasurable experiences I’ve had in my beer tasting career.

The aroma wasn’t pleasant to begin with, but then came the flavor.... the best I could come up with is, it tasted like sweat. Old sweat. Discusting, horrible, and nasty. I must admit, I can taste a little bit of wheat in there somewhere, and it did have a little carbonation, but sweat?

brewbandit (312) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Nice hazy golden body with light head. Yeasty aroma with coriander. Light wheat tartness, not as strong as I expected, or have tasted in others. Still an easier drink than some of those.

PullMeABeer (203) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Bottle. Pours a very light slightly hazy yellow, with a paper thin head, very few bubles slowly rising to the surface of the beer. Very yeasty aroma, sunscrean, rotton banana. Flavor is light, watery, a little flat. Not too much to get excited about here. "It’s past its prime."

jigglyjock (163) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 13, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2005 Pours a very pale yellow with a hazy white murkiness from the yeast. Has a mediem bright white head which disipates slowly. Hints of clove, orange, coriander spice flavor with wheat and malt in there.

Well, the aroma is definetly has a belgium smell to it, fruity, yet still wheat beer like with hints of flowers. It’s not as good as some belgiums out there but still solid. Flavor is also very Belgium as well, who’d have guessed. It also has a slight citrus hint to it that is rather nice. Good beer.
