COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Belgian White Ale combines a complex malt character with sweet orange peel, coriander and a secret spice. Challenge your taste buds and see if you can guess our secret spice. The end result is a crisp refreshing wheat beer that can be enjoyed all year long.

12oz pour from Andersons in Sylvania. Murky yellow pour with thin white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is citrus, spice and yeast. Tastes are coriander, wheat, and sweet orange, yeast. 6.6

This beer is good. Looks like its going to be a little thin. Aroma is decent. Poured with zero head. But the taste is reminiscent of hoegaarden. If you like wits, youíll like this.

Best by January 2014.
Appearance: The body is milky hazy with a burnished straw color. The head is short but dense, settling into a white coating with a small ring.
Aroma: The aroma has hints of sulfur with a typical straw, lemon, orange blend found in most wits, very mild coriander and a hint of banana.
Taste: The intro is crisp with a light straw and lemon flavor, it continues with a light coriander and pepper flavor that tingles the tongue. Thereís then a mild star anise presence on the finish, either that or ginger? Itís hard to tell because itís not too prominent, but I like this until the finish.
Palate: Light and crisp with a creamy texture.
Overall: This is a decent wit, but the finish really ruins this for me. I feel that whatever they added is a bit too expressive and it would be a bit better if they toned it down.

Bottle, thanks sevenhokie! Not very strong aroma, but I still pick up hints of malt, banana and orange. I believe it sat too long as it poured a very clear, light golden colored with a very fizzy head that disappeared quickly. However, it still tastes pretty good. Malt, banana and faint citrus give way to a smooth, spicy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled at esbls. White golden and very hazy. A nose of banana that is also in the flavor. Very light fare. Lawnmower beer?

suprchunk (2029) - Crestview, Florida, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Cloudy light yellow colored pour. Small white head. Not much lacing. Smells of malt, lemon and yeast and spice. Taste is spicy, citrusy, malty and yeasty. Not bad.

Not a bad Belgium white. Nice flavor and spicy ness. Lacks some of the more robust flavors and could use a little more body but I like.

Pours a cloudy orange-yellow color with an aroma of orange, wheat, and spice. Mostly orange flavor with some coriander and wheat. Itís a summer beer. Easy drinker.

Orange and nutmeg stands out. Pours like a lemonade and refreshing for summer. Cloudy and unfiltered. Try it. ---all in good suds.
