COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Ale is our take on a classic Belgian Wit Beer. To make this beer unique, we add un-malted wheat, rolled oats, two varieties of classic European hops, chamomile, curacao orange peel, coriander, grains of paradise, and a rare yeast strain from the Old Country. This is a beer that can be enjoyed year round. Cheers!

Slightly cloudy yellow-tan, little head, not a lot of lacing. Aroma is pretty heavily lemon, with a little yeast and a little wheat. Taste wise I thought it was a shandy when I popped the first can. Very, very lemony, like itís got part lemonade in it. The lower carbonation also led me to believe this might be a shandy*. Body wise itís light and refreshing, just like a shandy. Lemony aftertaste compliments the light body. Itís not bad, just somewhat strange, and not what I expected. I donít think itís going to shatter any craft beer sales records, but itís a good enough lawnmower beer. *obviously before I read the can, didnít have my glasses with me when I bought it

Pours a cloudy golden yellow with two fingers of thick frothy white head. Nose shows a significant spice profile and definite floral quality. A touch of sweet citrus rind shows through as well . Yeasty notes with some bread dough. Way too much spice in the flavor. Takes on a musty/dusty character and dominates the flavor. A touch of citrus rind but mostly spice. Medium light body and dry on the finish.

Fatehunter (1333) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Almost a finger of head on a hazy, light straw colored body. The aroma had a little honey and grain. Faint overall though. The taste was pleasant if light. The mildest bitter lemon note and a little spice. The texture was crisp with moderate carbonation. Not bad.

can. Hazy golden with small head. Uniquely spiced wit. This is probably not true to style, but it works for me.

marcus (6692) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Can from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours cloudy blonde with a decent off-white head and a fig and toffee aroma. There is a slightly tart citrus and cinnamon flavor with a yeasty feeling. This is a strange tasting witbier, but not too bad.

brokensail (11269) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Clear golden pour with a white head. Lemon, soap, honey, coconut, and chamomile on the nose. Sweet bread, some grass, coriander, and orange. Weird sour, soapy, herbal flavor. Chamomile, coconut, honey, and lemon. Light bread and cracker maltiness, grass, and a hint of orange. Really weird.

Aroma is wheaty. Taste is like an overpowering blue moon with a hint of lime. Very thick and creamy mouth feel.

travita (4111) - Frisco, Texas, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Can. The look is clear, thin whitish head, and golden in color. The smell is wheat, hops, garbage, honey, sweet, and eh. The taste is sweet, hops, wheat, hops, yuck.

This is some strange business. It is not a witbier at all, even though Crazy Mountain paid attention to details most people ignore like actually using unmalted wheat. However, the spice is all kinds of different. There is a big list of stuff on the side of the can but what I get out of this mostly is a sort of mellow cinnamon warmth, perhaps it is the chamomile. It is interesting an interesting sort of flavor for something I think of as a light, refreshing style but itís pretty tasty.
