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.

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.

Bottle poured bright, hazy blonde, with sticky, thin head. Smells like oranges and tortillas, very earthy and full. Tastes like a plain cake donut, with delicious subtle hops and sweetness. Not at all the wheat I was expecting.

...one of the best Wit beers ever from a US brewery. Nice orange and spicey clove notes, and well rounded wheaty malt flavor. Pale color, with haze and good sediment. Roll the bottle to maximize the experience. You should try this.

good for a hot summer day. traditional belgian white style and very refreshing. some say mixing with OJ is good for a hangover and is called a colorado mimosa. use organic OJ and it becomes a Boulder mimosa. pour in a glass to see the nice color

Great WitBeer. Perfect for a summer afternoon. This is the kid of WitBeer more people need to be exposed too so they don't judge the style based on blue moon! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a cloudy yellow with a medium white head. Aroma of coriander and citrus. I first tasted this at a beer tasting at the Phinney Market, and it was my favorite of the bunch, so I bought a six pack. Nice orange in the taste and some great spices. This beer was kinda expensive but worth it, I would say.

Aroma: Funk is the very first this I get on the nose with this ale. Funky, yeasty, barnyard almost with the very slightest suggestion of coriander or fruit trying push through. A welcome change from the big candied fruit nose of so many American Wits. Appearance: Hazy, pale yellow with a quickly fading head that returns with a slight swirl of the glass. I left the yeast in the bottom. A sturdy lacing does remain on the beer though; I bet this ale would benefit greatly from bottle conditioning. Taste: Nailed it! The wit can be a tricky maiden to tame due to the ease with which you can make the beer sweet and over the top fruity. This ale is neither. It starts with a rich yet drying yeasty flavor that is immediately surpassed by the sweet fruit flavors of the coriander and orange peel. The orange peel feels like maybe it was bitter because it lends depth of flavor not sugar to the taste so they avoid the cloying feel and stick to refreshment and a nice slightly acidic finish that gets the juices flowing. Palate: I like the way the beer drinks: rich yet session-ably light. The carbonation shines in the mouth and really releases the complexity of flavor the funk hides on the nose. Whatever yeast these guys are using really does a great job of making this beer feel authentically Belgian. Overall: Although I do not seek out the Belgian Wit as an everyday drinker, I think this one has the depth of flavor and avoidance of candy sweetness that would make it worthy of being stocked in my beer fridge. Plus it’s my wife’s favorite beer!

The appearance of this beer is that of an off yellow color with a foam that is bone white. The aroma of this beer starts with a corrainder mixed with a subtle lemon zest. The taste of the beer has a orange zest with a sweet subtle malt.

Light, cloudy yellow color. Light refreshing taste. Notes of citrus and spice up front that last to the finish. Yeast on the bottom and needs to be mixed into the beer to get the full flavor. Poured into glass and gave almost a half inch of head. Not to strong or yeasty. Goes down really easy and flavor remains on the tongue after you finish, leaves a spicy flavor well after. Would drink again
