COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first thing you'll notice about this Belgian style white ale is the aroma from the orange peel, coriander and chamomile. Unmalted wheat and oats give it a firm milky body and grainy flavor while the yeast contributes a quenching spiciness. Overall an effervescent and refreshing brew.

Sampler at Brewers Rendezvous 7/9/11. Pours a thin white head, over a hazy yellow (SRM 3) body....nose is light banana, bubblegum....taste is light banana, bubblegum, touch of cereal...mouth feel light, carbonation medium. This meets the major points of the style, but is otherwise not particularly distinguished. BJCP 6/3/10/4/6

Hazyish yellow with a light white head. Aroma is noticeably spicier than other wittes. Lots of coriander, orange peel, and peppery floralness. Taste was good, but not as exciting as the aroma. Citrusy wheat, dry Belgian spice, grain, and yeast. A little too carbonated, but it is firm and assertive and a touch different. Points for that.

adnielsen (9032) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 17, 2011
On tap @ brewpub. Very cloudy, luther yellow orange appearance with a white head. Sweet, coriander, orange peel, light wheat malty nose. Lots of coriander and orange peel over a light bodied wheat ale. Coriander, orange peel aftertaste. Easy drinking witbier but the added spices seem a little overdone.

thegreenrooster (3201) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 13, 2008
Pour is a bright cloudy yellow with a large with head. Aroma is not much but some citrus zest. Flavor is kinda weak and watery with a little citrus at the end. The least liked at coopersmiths.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 29, 2008
This one has a really interesting nose, the chamomile is really apparent, with some spicy white pepper and mustard seed notes. Yeasty spice dominates the palate, but this is still very light and refreshing with lively carbonation. Great on a hot day like this.

BlackForestCO (977) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - DEC 27, 2007
On tap at the brew pub. Poured a hazy golden-orange color with a frothy white head. Aroma of orange and coriander among other spices. Pretty average wit taste, orange peel, coriander, wheat, and other yeasty spices dominate the taste. Nice, lively carbonation that bites the palate and keeps you coming back for more. It isn’t an out of this world wit, but it is solid and nice on a hot day.

CaptainCougar (7131) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 16, 2007
On tap at the brewpub on 10/14/07: Pale golden pour has a wispy-lacing froth of white head. Citrusy coriander nose has a pale malty sweetness and authentic lightly doughy Belgian yeast. Body starts with a refreshing light sweetness and crisp, mild orange and lemon citrus balance. A nice witbier, although it could use a little more body.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2007
Tap @ CooperSmiths: Poured a hazy light pale yellow color with a small white head. Wheaty citrus aroma with a hint of clove. the wheaty flavor had lemons and oranges. Light spice and a hint of banana. Semi-dry with a lively mouthfeel. Light body and very refreshing.

Draught at the brewery. Beer is a murky light dirtyyellow with a small, white, frothy, mostly diminishing head. The aroma is malty with a moderate note of toasted grain; Hoppy with light notes of lemon zest, herbal, and traces of heady asiatic lilly-like floral notes; Yeasty with a trace note of basement; :Light miscellaneous notes of spicy orange zest, corinader. The flavor is lightly-to-moderately sweet, lightly acidic, with a lingering, trace bitter, moderately acidic, lightly astringent finish. Would like a little more complexity in the flavor—perhaps a bit more of a bitterness on the back end to clean things up a piece, but it’s not bad. Powerful floral retro—like having your nose in a bouqet for a split-second. Pretty. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is fizzy. Net: Refreshing and light, fizzy and joyful.
