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!

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.

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.

It poured a hazy lemon yellow with a small head that diminished quickly but left nice lacing. The aroma is light and spicy, with the coriander very apparent. I thought the odor was more lemony than orange. The orange was more obvious in the flavor than I expected from the aroma, with the coriander still very noticeable, along with a hint of pepper and clove. Itís a little hoppier than many witbiers, but since I like a hoppy beer, this suited me just fine! White Rascal is definitely a very drinkable beer, and one that Iíll be putting in my "beer rotation."

From a can (I know, heresy) obtained from a 6 pack at QFC in University Village near UW campus.
Aroma is very sweet. Banana, citrus, gum, and very delicate. Very inviting a pleasant.
Appears bright, but translucent. If you mixed orange juice with pineapple juice, I feel like thatís what this looks like. One to two fingers of white head.
Tastes like sweet, fruity citrus. Pineapple, banana, coconut, plenty of other tropical fruits. Itís not overly citrusy or carbonated, it really has an incredible balance. It might be too sweet for the average beer drinker, but itís just right for me.
Palate has a perfect balance as well. Good carbonation, no bad residual flavors, goes down smooth. I canít think of anything else I would ask for.
Overall, this is one of the few beers that I feel comfortable buying a sixer of. It seems like no matter what mood I am in, I could be in the mood for this. This beer is what turned me on to Avery, and now I know I wonít go wrong with picking up any of their high brow stuff.
