Light in color, big in flavor. White Cap is a thoughtful blend of wheat, pale malt, coriander, and orange peel. Fermented cold, a traditional Belgian yeast provides classic notes of banana and bubblegum, with muted clove essence.

Aroma is citrus, spices and mildly off-putting fruit/sorghum. The flavor is citrus, spices, wheat, sorghum/fruit and a tangy finish. Not bad as a whole but a little off.

Pours a pale golden with a big fluffy white head and some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is weird in a way I canít exactly put my finger on, itís fruity for sure with some light spiciness, a mild sweet characterÖ but itís soapy odd and generally unappealing.

The flavor is similarly odd in a way I donít have a lot of descriptors forÖ Itís certainly got a soapy bitterness, but itís got some nice softer wheat-y bread flavors that are nice, the spices arenít horribly overbearing and the orange comes across more as a bitter orange peel, which I kind of like. Mildly sweet, kind of weird.
Itís not all together bad beer, but itís decidedly sort of muddled, and essentially the flavors could work a little more harmoniously togetherÖ in my opinion.

This may have been a decent beer except for the slight taste of a beer that is infected. Not sure if its the over use of orange peel or whatever, but it takes away from anything else. I had this experience with a wit from another local brewer and that was undrinkable. The reminder of that beer took away from the enjoyment of this beer.

Crystal gold color with white head. Orange spice on the nose. Taste is orange, coriander, vanilla and bubblegum laid on top of a wheat base. Surprisingly creamy texture. Donít love the style bit one of the best wheat ales. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. bottle. Pours clear orange with a soft soapy white head that fades to a wispy film and soapy collar. Aroma has banana bread some honey clove and a little bubblegum. Taste is spice and orange zest some banana and yeast. Palate is thin and fizzy yet has slick dry finish.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Sampled at All Pints North 2013 in Duluth, MN. Rich golden pour with a smaller white head. Mild spice and wheat. Very mild fruit element. Not bad.

Beer pours very clear, seems like a good amount of carbonation. Very strange that a wit beer would be this clear. Overall not very representative of the style, seems strange, lacking in wheat, kinda muddled style-wise.
