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.

12 oz bottle: seems to pour crystal clear out of the bottle, but settles into a bright, though hazy lemon. Thin starched white head. Characteristic clove/cracked pepper/yeasty aroma. Though the aroma is just what you would expect a slight tang of sweet orange rind and sour malt keeps it from being boring. Nice tight carbonation, which creates a smooth mouth feel. Lemon flavours up front are balanced nicely with bitter oranges, chewy malt, sticky/sour honey, and some fennel. Not my favourite style, but satisfying and interesting no less, Cheers whaleman for the extra treat.

Golden yellow with white foamy head. Fruit and spice in the nose. Watery and spicy flavor. Not impressed.

herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - FEB 8, 2004
Straw colored brew with a big bubbly white head. Spicy,yeasty nose. Crisp wheat bite with some lingering spiciness. Light bodied, this would make a nice summer session brew.

haddon90 (1429) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 7, 2004
Pale golden color. Somewhat cloudy. Nice white head that sticks to the glass. Aroma has citrus, lemon, banana, some spice too? Flavor could use a little bit more. Peppery, some citrus. Overall pretty good, but could use a little more to be a really good beer.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 1, 2004
Cloudy Yellow, Big sloppy white head. Toasty citrus aroma. Full, fluffy mouthfeel. Spicy, orange and lemon flavors first, then a peppery finish. More of a session Witbier than a special-event Witbier, but nice nonetheless.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Bottle pours a very yellowish-white cream color, with a decent white head.   Lacing is moderately sticky... head has nearly dissapated now.   Aroma is very faint for a Witbier.   The coriander and curacao orange peel are very mild.   Initial taste is promising, but falls flat without an adequate amount of spicing.   Mouthfeel needs more... wanting the spice that is a true Belgian White.   This brew would have been better if it had a bit more spice to it.   The finish makes me think I had a plain ole American Wheat with some lemon in it.   Definately not an Allagash White, but its okay.   Thanks goes out to ClarkVV for the trade!

This beer pours a light yellow color with a small white head and leaves very little lacing on the glass. The aroma is a mixture of spices, wheat, some hops, and a little citrus. The flavor starts out a little hoppy and then has the standard wheat flavor, but has a nice bit of spices to make it interesting. I had high hopes for this beer, but it didn't totally live up to them. It's a good beer, but not too special.

Straw yellow color with a big, foamy white head. Aroma is pretty faint. Some belgain sugar noted, but not a lot else. Flavor has a bit of sweetness, substantial carbonation, maybe just the faintest not of hops. Not a bad brew, but not something I would go out looking for.

This is a very lemony witbier with a trace of straw within the taste as well.
