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.

Bottle. Cloudy yellow/whitish pour of a typical wheat beer. Wheat, sweet citrus scent. Light bodied, silky textured. Orange wheat fronted taste with a coriander hint in the aftertaste. Not sure on the "secret spice."

Tastes like a mixture of Coors Light and water, with a little apple juice thrown in. I’d be reluctant to use this stuff for drowning rats.

12 oz bottle, notes only. Very cloudy ! Yellowish, muddy. White, frothy head. Extra spicy, saison-like flavors. Coriander, orange peel.

Poured into a pint glass. 3.0 A: Hazed golden wheat color. One and a half fingers of frothy white head. Retention is a touch below average and very little lacing is left. 4.0 S: Big corriander, grains of paradise, and some orange peel. Good wheatiness with a light peppery spiciness. Clean and pleasant. 3.5 T: Taste is like the nose with a little less intensity. Corriander and orange peel stick out among the neutral wheat. A touch of pepper. Again, super cleann. 4.0 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Very nice creaminess. Good here. 3.5 D: Good quality wit from a local brewery that I’m happy to have.

Spices in the aroma that lead to a crisp, zesty, spicy taste that is light and refreshing but also full enough to enjoy. Lightly malty.

On draft at Falls City Pub, Ohiopyle. Poured hazy gold with white head. Lemony zest, yeast, floral flavor. Crisp but thin, thirst quenching. Solid offering from Full Pint, may check back in this summer.

MarkSachon (574) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2011
From a 12oz bottle purchased at The BeerHive in Pittsburgh. Pale on the pour and ghastly white first impressions. Could use more of the orange peel to balance the insipid lack of flavor. Sits rather heavy on the gut despite the overall lightness of everything else.

Hazy buttery yellow with pillow white head medium bodied Wit Beer. Strong citrus flavors, and some coriander spice blend very well together. My first beer brewed by Full Pint and I’d say they have a very drinkable Wit.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of LIVEFAST. Thanks Alan! Cloudy light yellow appearance with a huge, off white head. Coriander, fairly yeasty, very citrusy, somewhat spicy, tropical, lemongrass (?) aroma. Light bodied, wheat malty, spicy yeasty, coriander, lemon/orange citrusy flavor. Very easy drinking, tasty witbier. Reminds me a lot like Dogfish Head Namaste.
