COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

The color of this beer is a cloudy straw color with a large, fluffy white head, and the aroma is a pure olfactory effervescent experience: the sour fruit, dough yeast, and wheat mixture fills your nose pleasantly. The taste is mildly sweet and slightly sour, and that combination is very, very nice. The palate fuses a lively carbonation, medium body, slick texture, and a medium-length finish.

Bottled. Pale yellow. Soapy orangey aroma. Dry and pleasantly firm. Light bodied, yet packed with flavour. A great wit!

A great tasting white ale with hints of lemon. This Belgian style white ale goes down better as a draught like any other beer... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Really impressed with this one. Very low ABV of 5.6%, but amazingly full bodied in taste. A surprisingly flavorful malt base, but the story here is spice. A bit of Belgian yeast going on, but primarily orange and coriander, which dominate the flavor profile in a refreshing way. Not a light white beer by any means. Recommended! A- ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

White Rascal is a Belgian White in the old tradition. I feel like I've gone back in a time machine to 1995 and am drinking the world famous Pierre Celis White that took the beer world by storm. White Rascal is the closest I've tasted to the vaunted Celis White. Flavors abound! Orange, coriander spice, and a crispness that makes for a great summer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great yellow orange color. Good frothy head. Good lacing. Nose of orange and coriander like it should. Tastes of tart orange, coriander. Hints of almost tropical fruit like notes in the finish. This is a great stand-by Belgain (Style) Wit made close to home.

Hazy light gold, pretty, thick creamy head. Nose nicely spicy, some lemon, some yeasts. Very good witbier flavor, zippy and spicy, clove and lemon, good stuff. Nice hop bite at the end. Full and creamy.
