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.

Indra (2571) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 11, 2003
Rather typical witbier aroma, some lemony citrus, coriander, herbal spice, orange peel and juicy sweetness. Hazy, pale yellow color, with a lasting, creamy head. Wheat malt and citrus up front, followed by a mild burst of spiciness and hop flavor, with a yeasty, fruity and quite zippy finish. Not a bad Wit.

Ungstrup (28463) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2004 A light yellow beer with a fine head. The aroma is light and of sweet hops, yeast, coriander, and sour wheat. The flavor is of grass, hops, citrus, and wheat and with a dry end. A rather boring beer.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 4, 2003
Cloudy and hazy light golden-yellow color, spicy and earthy citrus aromas, decent white frothy head that sticks to the sides of the glass.Wheat with peppery and spicy yeast flavors, crisp carbonated mouthfeel, finishes clean and dry, great for the style, very refreshing and tasty.

Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2003
In a Blanche de Chambly glass. Hazy pale golden body with a tiny white head that leaves just a lace very fast. When leaning the glass from one side to the other, that tiny head remains stuck to the glass for a few seconds. Spicy aroma, lots of coriander. The taste reminds of wheat, oranges and lemon, but mainly coriander. Medium sourness and even a light bitterness toward the finish. The texture is pretty thin. One of the tastiest witbiers I've had for sure with more intense spicing and a slight alcohol hint.

steview (1013) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 1, 2003
Mmm smells like spicy orange wheat. It poured like a Miller, but since it's unfiltered there be yeast at the bottom. Mmm, vitamins. I let this beer sit for a few seconds so I can watch in amusement as the yeast swirled aimlessly on its way to the bottom . Mmm, now the beer is cloudy. It tastes a bit thin and watery, but its real flavors are identical to its nice aroma. This beer went well after my szechuan spiced rice. Very good, it won't go down slow.

jsquire (3346) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 30, 2003
Very pale cloudy yellow out of the bottle with a lasting, whispy white film for a head. Light body and very easy to drink. Nice coriander spice with more citrus and berry flavors than I expected. Not a great witbier, but a very enjoyable drink.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 29, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2007 GABF 2003: Hazy light yellow with a large white head. Big bold lemon spice aroma with some oranges. Hmm... Medium bodied, ends slightly sweet, watery texture.

Fairly yeasty aroma. However, the sweetness I've come to expect from other witbiers, I didn't find so much here. I probably would have been well served in letting this warm a little before I drank it, oh well, live and learn.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2005 2003 bottlePours a lighter yellow with some white tinges. Moderately cloudy with not a whole lot of head. Smells of coriander, yeast, a little bit perfumy. Orange and more citrus. Starts out mildly acidic, mildly sweet and VERY WATERY. Yuck this tastes like soggy wheat with some slightly tart but muted lemon and a little bit of dissolved bubble gum/candy flavor. Maybe I got a bad bottle, dont know why this would be so bad. coriander and lots of water dont mix. 5/4/3/1/7
2005 draught at Redbones Phew, was hesitant to try this one after hating the bottle I had last. Much better though. A hoegaarden clone it seems, with a very similar appearance (though this lacked much, if any head formation or retention). Huge amount of haziness though, and who would have thought, when Avery makes unfiltered beers, they are good, hint hint. Lemon, bubble gum and clove all balanced well with soft wheat and light pils malt and belgian base malt. 6/4/7/3/12
