COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

2/24/12. On tap at the brewery during RBWG 2012. Hazy pale... light... yellow/green/pale color. Somewhat odd, but interesting. Bold phenolic aroma up front with plenty of spice and touches of citrus. Sweet orange flavor with lots of phenolics again and a touch of banana.

Pours hazy amber with a white head. Smells of coriander, some breaddy hints, grassy. Tastes crisp with a nice compliment of grainy rye, coriander and sweet wheat. Nice!

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JAN 17, 2011
From Battle of Wits 4 pack. A cloudy golden beer with a small head. The aroma is pretty nice with citrus, wheat and almost spicy. This really smells good. The taste is crisp and refreshing. Wheat, orange and some rye in there that seems to give it some spice. You know this kind of beer is perfect for South Texas and I can envision Freetail having some success in the future with this style of beer since it is hot here most of the year.
