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!

Tap @ brewery. Clear light gold, with a great aroma of orange peel, coriander, grains of paradise, with a slight floral character. Big note of orange citrus on start of flavor, turns wheaty and grainy in the middle. Ends with more citrus and flowers. Bright and flavorful, without blandness or too much funk.

Hazy gold with a thin white head. Creamy medium-full body with medium-high carbonation.

Aroma: lots of chamomile and raw wheat, with coriander and paradise seeds.

Taste: strong chamomile, tart wheat, some bitter orange in the center, and some faint grainy astringency and other odd notes from paradise seeds (i’m not very familiar with them) or phenolics. Tastey and interesting, could make cool food pairings.

Pours light gold with a small white head. Aroma is light wheat, grains, faint citrus, and maybe (just maybe) some light maple syrup. Taste is very malty - you can really taste the grains upfront and in the mid-palate. Those malt flavors finish with a short lived bitter bite - a pleasing bitter bite. For a wit beer, this one is pretty complex and one of the better ones I’ve had.

12 ounce can into pint glass, no can dating. Pours hazy bright gold color with a 1 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, orange peel, coriander, chamomile, pepper, clove, wheat, bread, oats, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, pear, apple, orange peel, coriander, chamomile, pepper, clove, wheat, oats, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, orange peel, coriander, chamomile, pepper, clove, wheat, bread, oats, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant flavors with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt notes; with very solid robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. No watery feeling at all in the flavors. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice and pleasant witbier. All around good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Sampled on tap at Crazy Mountain on 12/27/12. Pours a light yellow color with white head. Coriander, wheat, floral flavors. Very floral, makes for an interesting floral wit. Refreshing, a nice beer for after skiing.
