COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This untamed, unfiltered, unbridled mix of wheat, oat and barley malts has made its way home. Now, with its blend of Curacao orange peel, coriander and Belgian yeast, this legendary Belgian White is ready to bite again with bone-chilling refreshment.

DCLawyer (2690) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAR 30, 2016
Bottle->small tumbler at some hipster place in Nashville. Cloudy copper with moderate white head. Wheat, grains, coriander, orange peel. Don’t like this style in general, and this is a relatively poor example of it.

tillmac62 (685) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - OCT 14, 2015
BOD 3/13/15. Pours a clear gold with a touch of amber. Normal head volume, lacing and retention. Outstanding nose of coriander, orange and yeast. Light medium body with a smooth texture. Superb carbonation with a nice effervescent burst in the middle and a solid prickly finish. The flavor profile is outstanding. Up the intensity and body a bit and this approaches world class flavor. It begins with a subtle grainy sweetness that then explodes with coriander. Orange arrives next with a touch of phenolic clove which slowly lingers past the finish. Fairly clean and very well balanced, just a tad bit tame.

altonbrownd (5659) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Bottle from Cork 57. Hazy orange body with slight head. Nose is sweet, malty. Taste is hops, caramel, peaches and fruits. Prickly texture. Okay.

alobar (3533) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2015
Pours golden orange with no head. Aroma of orange citrus, coriander, and wheat. Citrus flavor with coriander and grain. Decent summer beer.

hfmejias (1270) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - AUG 1, 2015
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured a bit hazy, copper in color. Nice, abundant off white head. Aroma of coriander, citrus fruit and wheat. Taste is consistent but with the addition of some yeast notes. Refreshing, drinkable and overall a very nice beer.

DiarmaidBHK (4190) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle from Wegman’s mechanicsburg. Pours golden with a thin white head. Solid orange notes on the nose. Solid citrus on the tongue but could use more pop. Finishes clean. Eh!

LinusStick (3237) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Meh. American attempts at this style always fall short and this is no different. Aroma was decent. Lots of big witbier spices. Orange peel and coriander were big and full. Pour was way too dark gold for this style. Taste was a mess. The spices and orange peel were overpowering and the light malt way too sweet. This beer tastes like it was 7% ABV. Mild carbonation.

HighlanderOne (1234) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - JUN 5, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2015 Poured from bottle. Aroma of malt and spice. Looks like blue moon. Tasting all kinds of spice here (coriander, pepper, nutmeg). Floral notes. Sweet malt base complements. Lemon and other citrus notes. Well done.

JDBaker11058 (1935) - Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Appearance: surprisingly dark gold out of the bottle, little yeast sediment, short white head, minimal lacing. Aroma: strong aroma of coriander, with some citrus and spice. Taste: toasted coriander seed very prominent, general belgian yeasty spice, light citrus, then a big toasty cracker finish. Finish: ended just slightly sour. Notes: Bottle at Full On. Seemed rather unbalanced, and not as zesty or refreshing as I like my witbiers to be. Average.
