A truly authentic Belgian style wheat or "white" ale, this Rascal is unfiltered (yup, thatís 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!

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.

Have not had this one since 2010. Saw that it can be purchased now in cans so figured why not get a 6 pack to add a can to the wall collection. Went back to the notes I had on this back then and pretty much I am saying the same thing about it now. Very traditional witbier but just a bit better made than others out there. This is truly among the best witbiers I have had. Only reason I donít make it a every summer beer is due to cost. It is a bit higher priced than others and the lower cost ones are still very good on a hot day so there it is. Good stuff but due to cost rarely enjoyed. Might not wait 4 years to enjoy again though.

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.
