COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Andrew got married! To celebrate, have a glass of Meg’s Bride-ale, a light and crisp Belgian-style wit. Spiced with corriander, and flavored with blood orange juice, this is a very light wit beer that is dry, fruity, and easy to drink.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Draft sample at brewpub on 01/18/08. Poured hazy yellow with an average creamy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate yeasty orange citrus aroma. Light to medium body with a light sticky texture. Medium citrus sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2008
Very hazy golden pour. Nose of cut grass, lightly roasted malts, and citrusy hops. The flavor of wheat, fruity yeast, orange peels, pepper, and citrusy pnw hops blend well. I needed another one immediately upon finishing the first. I had another sample 6 weeks or so after the first. This was the bottom of the barrel...I found it had not aged very gracefully...a tad played-out and flat. The bright citrusy flavors and high notes were all gone. But I choose to remember the "Bride" as she once was...bright, playfull, and flirtatious.

Ughsmash (7135) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 4, 2008
On tap at Flossmoor Station. Poured pale, hazy golden with a creamy cap of white head. The aroma picked up sweet and spicy Belgian-inspired yeast with honey and oranges.. sweet overall, well-balanced, and entirely enjoyable. The flavor found tangy orange peel, coriander, and white pepper over sweet honey.. floral accents.. bit of sour wheat and orange zest ride out the finish. Lighter-bodied, dry, tart, and refreshing on the palate.. very well done!

3fourths (8020) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2008
Standard wit color. Pasty, light flavors of wheat and light spices, with very little Belgian character, and it seems like a typical example of American made witbier than is really hefeweizen. A standard wit that stands out from nothing.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 20, 2007
On tap at Radio Maria, Champaign, IL. Murky yellow-orange body, medium-thick off-white head. Good lacing. Strong, sweet nose of orange blossoms, coriander, and honey. Strong coriander body, with potent orange notes, sweet, bready malts, and floral characteristics. Well-executed, but very sweet. I wouldn’t want to drink more than a couple of these.

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 15, 2007
10th rating of the beer, making it an "official" beer! On tap at Radio Maria in Champaign. Served in a big, curvy wheat beer glass. Hazy light yellow pour with a pillowy white head. Spicy and somewhat citrusy aroma. Flavor was similar with citrusy oranges and coriander spice. Finish was crisp and dry. A pretty simple beer overall, but very enjoyable to drink!

Stine (1572) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 13, 2007
On tap at the pub. Hazy, whitish gold puour. Dry white toast, coriander and some browner spices in the aroma. Inviting. Plenty of nutmeg, and dry clove spiciness in the flavor; heavy on tropical sweetness in pineapple and orange juices. Hints of tart, pungent ginger and a touch of drying saltwater toward the finish. Crisp, light, and refreshing palate; finishes vibrantly with a lot of lively spice and a clean yeasty coating. Slightly strange, in a nice way.

TheAlum (5701) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2007
Poured draft at Flossmoor Station. Poured a nice hazy straw colow. Decent head that stuck around. Smelled of orange, coriander, and sweet malt. Taste was a little bland on initial, but the finish really was pleasant. Not alot of spice upon my review, but the orange essence was really pleasant. Smooth and very sessionable.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 7, 2007
Draft at the brewpub. Poured a hazy yellow gold color. Head was thick and white with good retention and lacing. The lace was tenacious and clung like grim death to the side of the glass well after the beer had been drained. Aroma was of coriander, orange peel, and a hint of graham cracker. Smooth and slightly sweet on the tongue with carbonation on the low end of the spectrum. There was plenty of coriander in the flavor accompanied by a bit of clove and some delicate sweet (as opposed to acidic/bitter) orange marmelade. Well put together wit.
