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.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Charlotte. This had a lot more flavor than most witbiers, with a lot of orange peel coming through.

Pours cloudy pale yellow with a finger of frothy white head. Aroma of honey, spices, wheat, citrus. Taste is sweet and rich in honey with a peppery and spicy finish. Body is light and smooth with soft carbonation.

UrbanCaveman (63) - Ohio, USA - NOV 25, 2014
12 oz bottle, poured into a tulip at approximately 45 degrees F. A: Pours a cloudy pale straw yellow, and forms a thin white head that fades quickly to a ring. Decent, if spotty, lacing. S: Fruit esters, so many of them, swirl out of the glass. Apple, pear, banana, melon, wreathed about some pale wheatiness and a touch of spice. T: Tart and then sweet, the flavor palate opens with a surge of citrus, which yields way to a pear-melon combination. Coriander and a herbaceous tinge color the entire tasting, growing stronger as it moves along, until the finish is primarily those flavors. M: Light bodied, but just heavy enough to feel like a decent beer. O: Not an overdone, overblown reach, but a more subtle approach to the style. What hop presence is there does not overpower and command everything for me, the way many more hop-prevalent beers do. J’approuve.

loubar (51) - Los Gatos, California, USA - NOV 18, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Whole Foods. Aroma a bit heavy with a hint of coriander and wheat. Mouth feel is zesty and creamy at the same time, medium high carbonation with spicy citrus zest, cloves, and coriander on a bready, malt base. Solid Belgian spice blend. Light bodied and refreshing with a crisp, dry finish. A fine witbier; very refreshing and completely drinkable.

John25 (642) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Can. Bright yellow. Aroma is banana and spice, I assume it’s coriander. The taste adds orange peel, floral hop notes, and some yeasty funk. Smooth light bitterness with a clean finish. Overall, the best witbier I’ve had. Very good.

maltman53 (371) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Smells like a banana flavoring muffin. This is a banana/juicy fruit gum bomb. Overall, it tastes better than it smells but not my style.

HULK777 (408) - - NOV 12, 2014
Warm, grainy aroma, containing wheat and hints of white cheese. Can’t taste the coriander though, allegedly included in this brew. Some citrus in the flavor, some wheat. Rice porridge present. Still overall fresh.
