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.

Can I just say yum? Apparently not, because I have a LOW CHARACTER COUNT! I am not sure if that is a commentary on me, or my lack of vernacular. Nice clean finish--no after taste. Bring on the The Rascal!

Delicious zero hop better with hints I’d fruit. Almost has a tiny bit of cider taste. Very crisp and refreshing. Drink liberally.

Pours a light cloudy yellow/white, perfect for the style. Aroma is sweet and nice. I expect a great witbier here. Flavor is good, hits you right away with a bit of the coriander and citrus. Oh I quite like this.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2009 Hell yes, someone did a White Ale Right! On tap at the Flying Saucer, Houston, Texas. I am very fond of witbiers. This thing stank to high heaven of yeast and wheat. A smell I refer to as "monk basement". Awesome. Almost clear it was so light yellow. Big poofy head. Taste is an explosion of wheat with a nice hop bite, but the palate finishes oh-so-clean. Thank you, Avery. Thank you.

The brew pours cloudy lemon yellow with a small foamy white head. I love the strong aroma and flavor of the orange peel in this classic Belgian style white ale.

One of my favorite beers. Has a pleasant spice aroma. A nice clear golden appearance with a white head. A very balanced taste. The strongest element being corriander. It has a light body and is fairly fizzy.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - SEP 23, 2004
12 oz. brown, longneck bottle. No freshness date seen anywhere. Poured out a beautiful pale white / yellowish color, with a huge frothy, white, meringue-like head. It slowly slid back to a generous matting of lace on top of the beer, and all down the sides. Aromas are of fresh malts, slight lemon, cloves, bananas, yeasty bread, spicy coriander, and orange peels. Tastes are great, with a very balanced flavor profile. Nothing stands out above anything else. Exceptional flavors leave you wanting more. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy. An extremely well made wheat beer.
