This was poured into a mug.
The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a slim finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds leaving a glazing of lace roaming around the glass.
The smell had a nice sweet sticky orange and blended citrus rind. A light spice around the coriander helps to balance.
The taste took the orange and citrus to combine with the spice to develop a nice refreshing lead into the aftertaste and leave a wet finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent crisp sessionability about it. The carbonation was there but seemed to smooth out a light citrus rind bitterness over my tongue delicately.
Overall, this one was good. It’s a nice take on a witbier to have a nice orange flavor in it.

Tap at irreale. Light hazy golden, white lace. Low clayish aromatics, lightbodied, minuscule straw malt body, lacking volume, fruit and spice of the style. Disappointing

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2015 Shared 12 oz. bottle poured to snifters, displaying a hazed, orangey gold hue, with a modest layer of soft white head foam, and light spots of lacing. The nose was light yeast, soft wheat, subtle spice, and subdued orange & pith. Light bodied, the taste offered a touch of sweetness, low hop bitterness, and finished a bit watery, but was elevated some by decent carbonation. Pleasant, but unassuming. Thought I’d try the draft version at John’s Restaurant & Tavern in Winfield, IL.. Shaker served showing a similar appearance, ripened fruit, subtle orange peel, and light floral & spice to the nose, with an earthy and candy-like sweetness to the flavor. Light bodied, with fair carbonation, and a bit thin textured. Same conclusion.
