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.

Wheat-musky, pineapple juice aroma. This beer is in a predicament -- wits are a summer beer, but this definitely improves when you take the ice-cold edge off of it. Though not enough to make me buy it again. Lightly sweet. An odd bitterness to the brew -- maybe like aspirin, or the white part of the orange peel or when you put your tongue directly on a little pile of nutmeg or cinnamon (though it didn't taste like those spices.) Clingy white head, mashed banana colored hazy beer with bb-sized coagulated yeast bits. Finish was just off -- bitter with whiffs of bandaid. And who thought up that label, hmm? Could it be...?

I too see similarities with the BlueMoon, but pours and taste too like a Hefeweizen without as much cloudiness. I agree with much of the commericial description, no surprises...though not refreshing!

For this style, it is decent...as for my tastes, I probably won’t try this again. Luckily I had a 10 oz. tasting from my local bar who had it on tap .

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - AUG 12, 2004
Thin and ultra light colored. Nose of corn adjunctness - yep, too sweet and artificial from the get go? A tad bit of pepper, certainly a very wheaty wit (thinly sour). Uninspired to say the least. Much better at the end with the yeast pour.

DrunkAsASkunk (847) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - JAN 26, 2005
This beer pours a very light yellowy color with very little soapy head and no lacing, but given its clear nature you could tell it was very carbonated. The aroma was light and weak with hints of doughyness, bread, a hint of coriander, and some florals. The flavor is light bodied, heavily carbonated, prickly and watery. Some doughyness, a hint of pears and citrus...cardboardy dry finish. Not very good...not very bad... just very weak and boring. No truly defining qualities here aside from the cottonmouth finish.

Engelsmann (651) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2005
Bottled. Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet wheaty, coriander and citrus. Taste is sweet, coriander, wheaty. Not a grreat wit

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAY 15, 2006
Pours hazed, faint pale yellow, almost white with a shallow spritzy froth. Aroma of salted banana. Light nectar w/ ample residual effers. Flavors are a bit sharp with hops while possesing the ntural attributes of the genre. Flavors of banana up front quickly chang to bitter peach pit and coriander spice. I also detected a bit of sodium on the side walls. Overall: it’s a bit hoppy for being so lite. The addition of coriander is nice. Not ballanced.

shigadeyo (3010) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - OCT 28, 2006
Sampled from 12 oz bottle on 10/25/2006 at the Junedale Beer Klub meeting... Pale gold color. No head. Light wheat and citrus flavor. Some spiciness as well. Fizzy and a bit thin. Need to revisit in the future...

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 29, 2007
The standard belgian wit aroma. Corriander spice, orange, etc. Yellowish and unfiltered. Flavor is orange, corriander, and wheat. Pretty standard here. A hundred times better than Sam White. Not my favorite style so I probably will not purchase again. We’ll see.

hoplover406 (204) - Crofton, Maryland, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Bottle. Some lemon & lime hop aroma, grass, a little coriander as well. This stuff looks like an unfiltered lemonade. Small creamy off white head with good lacing. Milky yellow in appearance. Acidic, tart / bitter flavor. Light in body, watery, fizzy carbo. Unremarkable.
