COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Traditionally cloudy, this Belgian style "White Ale" is brewed with coriander seed and dried orange peel, producing a beer light in body with a refreshing citrus and spicy aroma. Because this ale is unfiltered it is best enjoyed when chilled and poured into a glass.

Pours hazy, pale straw gold and with a fat head of white foam . Some is creamy some is loose and it falls slowly but doe not leave too much lace. Nose is sweet wheat with honey and a nice citrus. Bright lemon peel and some fresh orange. A leafy hop herbal that turns grassy as the beer warms. A bit of cracker that you can smell . Drinks dry and crisp with wheat that appears thin tall and golden to the palate. A sweetness behind it that is light honey. A slight bitterness and a lovely bit of citrus fruit. That fresh orange really takes the drink. It’s puts the lemon to the side which stays only for a mild tartness. Finishes dry and with a light little aftertaste where the herbal kicks up once more. I like it very much. Refreshing, crisp and with a smooth mouthfeel that is creamy and has a soft few bubbles in it.

zach8270 (3472) - Henrietta, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2014
(can - 12 oz) Cloudy orange pour with a thin white head. Mild aroma of wheat, coriander and some very very subtle orange zest. Dry wheat in the flavor at the start and that’s about it. Lacking the spice or orange that I caught in the aroma.

Pours a clear a little hazy yellow/gold coloue with a small white head. Nose of orange mainly with some other citrus. Light on the palate and not much else is going on in the taste. You get a bit of the citrus tangyness at the end but nothing else. Drinkable but nothing special.

jdobbs (380) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 28, 2014
Milky yellow, with nice white, good lacing, mostly lasting head. Aroma is fresh cirtusy, yeasty and it has some malty and spicy floral notes. The taste is somewhat sweet and acidic at the same time, a bit tart, lots of lemmon and orange notes, light malts, yeast and coriander spiceness.

vadie (709) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 25, 2014
Jaune brumeux avec une petite mousse blanche. L’arôme est d’abord du blé, cardamome et un très peu d’orange. Quand il se réchauffe il est plutôt du malt. Le goût est pas mal malté pour le style.

pictoman (513) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
Poured from the tap. Hazy golden yellow with white head. Light citrusy orange aroma. Very wheaty taste. Very simple. Nothing really stands out (in a good or a bad way).
