A truly authentic Belgian style wheat or "white" ale, this Rascal is unfiltered and cleverly spiced with coriander and Curacao orange peel producing a refreshingly classic ale.

I donít trust restaurants who canít wait to tell me what beer I should have instead of Blue Moon or Sam Summer, Oberon and Stella are not the same. Having said that, the Ravenous Pig in Orlando has a great bar staff and they pick beers no one is thinking of. Their beer guy introduced me to Algash and Avery White Rascal. White Rascal is the second best wheat beer ever. Great in a can, better in a bottle, incredible in a keg. The beer tastes like wheat and pepper. That is it, like steak frites or bacon and eggs. The best things in life can be defined by its simplicity.

tfredvik (1670) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 26, 2015
Cloudy and opaque yellow body with a white head that laces the glass well. Strong aroma of wheat, a confusing yeasty element that is as wit-ish as it is hefe-ish, citrus, banana and spices, and in the back I get honey and sweet corn flakes. The strong flavour gives the same wit/hefe confusion, I get lots of spices, especially coriander, but at the same time lots of banana in a hefeweizen way. Also pretty citric. The taste is sweeter than most witbiers, the finish is light bitter. Dry and light on the palate, rather lively carbonation. A nice one!
[33 cl can, enjoyed 6 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Online]

Witbier is one of my favorite summer styles (and one of my favorite style, period for that matter). When done right it can be amazingly delicious. When done well itís still pretty good. Avery White Rascal falls into the latter category. A solid, to-spec Belgian White for sure, but not an amazing one.

I poured a 12oz can into a goblet. It was canned on 6/22/15 and cost $2.95 ($0.25 per ounce).

Appearance: Classic pale yellow hue with translucent body. Not carbonation is visible, nor is sediment. Pours to a large, white, pillowy head which laces and retains beautifully.

Smell: A light fruity aroma of bananas and orangepeel with some floral notes. Not quite as pungent as Iíd prefer, though.

Taste: There are certain flavor components I expect and want in a witbier and this has them all. A light wheaty body up front, but with not especially sweet (nor tart). The second half contains most of the flavor in the form of citrusy orangepeel and a light coriander spice. Not much in the way of hop flavor or bitterness. Itís a simple, repetitive palette and the taste never grows old; my only complaint is that itís a little too mild. Iíd think a fresh can like this would be bold and peppery, but itís surprisingly tame. This would make a great starter witbier, though.

Drinkability: A beer like Avery White Rascal is exactly what I want in the warmer months. Itís refreshing after every swig and leaves a clean aftertaste. The mouthfeel is quite soft and smooth Ė almost creamy, though it also feels a bit watery and under-carbonated. Iíd prefer more zesty Belgian effervescence (which is more common in bottle-conditioned brews). It doesnít seem to quite take full advantage of its 5.6% ABV, as this feels like something in the sub-5% range. Iím sure no one will have a problem putting back a couple of these.

Score: 7/10

12oz can. Pours a cloudy deep straw with a white head. Spicy, citrusy aroma, cloves, phenols, yeast, wheat. Off-dry, medium bodied, low bitterness, creamy CO2. Spicy, citrusy taste, cloves, lightly hoppy, wheat, phenols, yeast. Easy drinking, nothing special, but very well made. (2015-07-17) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz can. Canned 11/25/14. Courtesy of olio. Cheers! Hazy yellow color with a small white head. Sweetness, yeast, mild wheat, spices and some fruitiness in the aroma. The flavor is dry malty wheat, sweetness, mild fruits and some yeast. A bit unbalanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
