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.

woah -- oxidized saaz are the welcome wagon. oh no. white foam, pale head -- very little curacao in the nose. there isa a roastiness that isnt unpleasant to the coriander. a bit hoppy for the style. hmm maybe those aren't hops but overboiled orange rind? maybe. If thats the case then you can get the neroli nose without the bitter by expressing the rind in cool water and then tossing the rind. ok - the off aromas have gone away but the alkaloidal bitterness is stll here. nice but flawed. i want more fruit and tempered bitter with more orange and lemon notes. yeah i'm picky -- i like this style.

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

Not a favorite style and yet wanted to try it as this brewer has performed with other brews. I found it to be reasonably true to type and a decent effort by an American brewer.

Spicy wit smell. Yellowish wit color. White wit head. Somewhat fruity yeast in the aroma. Flavor is a little off; it tastes like a blend of American and Belgian wheat beers. Nothing exceptional, but easy to drink on a summer day.

Bottle, Cloudy yellow pour. There was something very earthy (to be nice) in the aroma and flavor, and I wonder if there was an infection in the bottle or batch. I will have to get another bottle to re-rate at a later date.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Bottle. Pours bright yellow, cloudy to the point of opacity, with rocky white head. The aroma is lemon and banana with some other random fruit and grain notes. The flavor is yeasty and slightly bitter with some zest, banana, raw wheat, and grass. Once in a while I can detect the corriander. Not a superior brew, not really as refreshing as I would like. But drinkable.

This isn’t a very good witbier in my opinion. The pour is a strong yellow color with a bright white head. The head has good retention. The aroma is of citrus and cloves. Definitely a spicey nose. The taste follows, with a strong mix of spices overpowering the citrus background. The beer is light--maybe too thin in the mouthfeel--but I feel that the spices were too dominant. If you like clove and coriander flavors, then this one is for you."

A semi-boring Belgian white. Why is it that American brewers can’t quite get the esters and phenols of Belgian beers? This is well-brewed, with the heart in the right place, just light and boring. I did not detect the spicing like other raters.
