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.

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

malrubius (1713) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Bottle from Save On. Wish these things had date codes. Very pale hazy beige orange with small head. Clovey coriander orange aroma. Tangy fruity tangerine sweetness with herbal spicy mild finish. Not quite as crisp or refreshing as advertised due somewhat heavy body for style and a little muddled in the finish, perhaps the "special spice." Still pretty decent.

Bottle at the BNA 8 party at World Cafe Live Philadelphia Cloudy light straw, yeasty spicy fruity with a hint of green apple. Nice brew.

yespr (31220) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2013
From tap at City Tap House. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is coriander and light estery. Sweet, light coriander spiced and mild citrusy. Lingering citrusy finish.

rondphoto (2017) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Cloudy light straw with a quick to disappear head and no lace. Taste is much like watered down lemonade with a little spice (especially coriander) added. Thin taste of wheaty malt augumented by citrus and spice. Flavor doesn’t hang around at the finish, leaving a sour residue. Bloating on the swallow (still waiting to have a relieving belch), about as refreshing as lemonade. Not recommended.

callmemickey (2779) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Hazy straw-yellow body, thin white head, minimal lacing. Lemon, grains, wheat, peppery yeast. Medium to light bodied, moderate carbonation, decent finish. Not bad.

boto (1854) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAY 18, 2013
12oz bottle: This one pours a fairly clear, straw yellow color. Mine had almost no head on it, and left almost no lacing. Lighter but nice aroma. Mainly lemony citrus, with faint spice and wheat notes. Some grassiness too. The taste is good. Pretty typical of a wit. Lemon, wheat, a hint of spiciness. Perhaps a bit lighter in body, but still pretty good.

JStax (2981) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2013
Poured on draft. Pours a cloudy yellow with a white head of foam. Aroma is very fruity and floral with a pleasant ester profile. It’s a little more hoppy than I would expect from a Witbier. I honestly thought it was a Belgian style IPA. Tastes fruity and estery. Overall very pleasant.

b3shine (5452) - Indiana, USA - APR 13, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a slightly hazy honey with thin white lacing. Smells semi-sweet, doughy, and yeasty with some citrus notes. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Okay.
