COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

A bananas and bubblegum wheat through and through. The aroma and the flavor all had that wheat beer yeast smell and flavor. The coriander undertones were nice and gave the beer a good bit of spice. Certainly some citrus lurking in there too. I was in the mood for this, so it tasted good, but at the wrong time, these kind of wheat beers can be lethal.

The first whiff and sip were the best. Nice spicy hint on finish with the requisite head and clove, curacao orange flavor of a witbier. Also a pleasant shallow smoothness to the first drink. That quality, however, took away from the experience for the rest of the remaining beer. It stayed rather shallow and the flavors mixed in a less harmonious way. It felt too diluted and muted somehow. Not an offensive taste at all. Worth having on a hot day in place of a megabrew for sure.

jhliesen (818) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Bottle-Poured a cloudy yellow color. The aroma was yeasty with slight spice or citrus flavoring. A bit of a weak taste of wheat and citrus. Produce place 1.49

From tap at Pizza Port, Carlsbad. Pours cloudy yellow with a lacing white head. Mild spiced and wheaty aroma. Wheaty and mild spiced with coriander. Smooth finish, classic and clean wit - slight spiced.

A light bodied belgian white. More of a sour note than many of the whites that I’ve had in the past. Easy to drink on a hot summer day, but I wouldn’t search for it in a pub.

smashteroid (262) - Alabama, USA - AUG 20, 2008
i was not a huge fan of this witbier, but my palate is a bit particular, and many belgian styles i find to be distasteful. the few that i do like...man, they’re good. this one was served cold from a 12oz. bottle. it poured light yellow/gold with a white head. some lacing. the aroma was floral and citrus-y, which made mequite excited to taste it. taste left something to be desired. smooth, but just not flavorful enough for me to really enjoy it.

A light bodied belgian white. More of a sour note than many of the whites that I’ve had in the past. Easy to drink on a hot summer day, I like it, but I probably won’t get much in the future.

taalhiker (190) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2008
From bottle. August Dayton Beer Tasting event - Favorite Summer Brews. Pours hazy yellow with standard witbier aromas of spice, orange peel and yeast. Falls apart a little on the taste. Thin and too sweet for my palate.

lumpsowers (287) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Nice thick mouthfeel, yeasty cloud, slight malt to start, rushed by overwhelming citrus sweet hops. Not bad, a little too sweet and somewhat disappointing.

Probably the closest thing to a belgian wheat that an American company has made. Orange peel and coriander give this brew a great authentic flavor.
