Untraditional Belgian-inspired beer brewed with raw wheat and 15% malted rye; seasoned with coriander and orange peel. Tongue-in-cheek take on an ancient classic of the beer world. Delicately spicy, but assertive enough to take on the richest of flavors.

Canned. Poured a slightly cloudy yellow gold. Bubbly and fizzy. Smells of wheat and orange peel. Little bit of rye but your standard acidic wheat otherwise.

Can. Pours a hazy gold with a high, large-grained, laxy, white head. Nose is medicinal, esters, white pepper, a little Band-Aid, and coriander. Sweet and peppery on the front of the tongue, with definite orange notes; on the back of the palate, it shifts into a more bitter and spicy edge. I don’t really get a lot of rye, but it’s there; it’s definitely rye beer with training wheels. Finish moves back into sweetness. Pleasant enough, but nothing challenging or ground breaking.

onceblind (6112) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Clear golden with a quiet but present rye wheat doughiness and a bit of spicy grass hops. Flavor is wheaty and spicy with some coriander and earthy rye, quiet and subdued but nuanced and uncomplicatedly cool.

chinchill (3354) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 23, 2014
On tap at the brewpub in the outskirts of San Antonio. Hazy light yellowgold with a semi-durable white head that leaves a little bit of lacing. Complex arom is lemony, spicy and bready. Flavor: more hoppy than suggested by the aroma. Lemon, banana, light malts and a good bit of spicy rye. Well balanced and somewhat layered. . O: a spicy and intersting wit beer. Recommended.

Pours a light creamy yellow color. Smell is strongly wheat and lesser so of lemon. Very wheaty flavor. Very witty. Seems like a solid witbier . Drinkable and enjoyable.

TXBadger (2079) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Pours a cloudy straw color with white head. Raw wheat and some rye on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with just a bit of spice.

Tap. Cloudy pale golden with small head. Wit with very mild rye. It works better than I expected. Nice take on a wit.

Ferris (8954) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2014
Draft - Traditional coriander and orange. Hazy yellow with a thin white head. Wheat, orange and coriander. Not sure if it is there or I want it to be, but a rye spicy kick I the finish.
