COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tasting Notes: “Aromas of coriander and orange spice dominate the nose. A very light mouthfeel is countered with sweet orange peel, coriander and subtle notes of chamomile. It finishes with delicate banana and clove spices. Surprisingly light and immediately quaffable.” 13 Ingredients: Malts: Pilsen. Hops: Sterling.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a hazy burnt yellow to orange color with a one finger soft white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing speckling the sides of the glass. The smell had a decent coriander to cardamom to clove up front. A light refreshing sweet banana and orange with a light lemon enlivens my nose. The taste was mainly sweet with a nice spice from the previously noted spices. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there and decent for the style and for me. Sharp enough but refreshing as well. Orange - like and appealingly slightly spicy aftertaste and dry finish. Overall, good witbier I would have again.

Light honey colored pour. Small white head. Not much lacing, but there is some. Big yeasty aroma with hints of spice and lemon, citrus. Taste is a pleasant mix of coriander, orange, malt and yeast. A little sweet. Finishing on the dry side. Not bad.

mikedR (1209) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Bought this on a whim because the Issaquah Brewery is down the street. Surprisingly good. Belgian style white ale in flavor, with nice almost Christmas ale-type spices complimenting the malt perfectly. Quite light, and clocks in as a session in the low 5% range. Recommended; solid B+. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught at Mckay’s Taphouse, Bellingham
Cloudy blond color, small head. There is a light what aroma and flavor, some malt flavor too, light malt crispness, light cookies, light spiciness (elegant one); correct bitterness.
Among white beers, a quite good one.

lusikka (6239) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2012
Draught @ Rogue Ales Public House, San Francisco. Rated on 17.10.2012.
Pours a cloudy, murky, dirty yellow colour. Actually looks like Koduolu or peach juice. No head at all. Aroma is really intense with Christmassy spices and pumpkin pie. Flavour of sweet malts, strong cinnamon and nutmeg, grass and some light bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a spicy sweet finish. A really spicy witbier which makes this rather interesting.

Pours hazy blond with a small white head. Smell is light fluffy coriander, clove, and a faint hint of citrus. Taste is somewhat spicy, leathery mouthfeel, sticky. Not my favorite Wit.

I’m not a huge fan of Belgian beers but this one was mild enough on the cloves I didn’t mind it. Light golden color and a nice citrus finish.

ben4321 (3916) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 21, 2011
Location: Draft at Rogue SF, 5/12/11

Aroma: This one has a nose made up of wheat and spice components
Appearance: The pour is a cloudy yellow color with a small white head
Flavor: The taste is spice and wheat, like the nose, with a little bit of citrus too
Palate: The body is fairly medium, with a decent mouthfeel and texture to it
Overall Impression: Overall, this is a solid Belgian white with a decent spice presence and a solid body. Not a bad offering at all.

Bottle @ home. Cloudy, yellow-orange-light brown appearance with a white head. Ginger, coriander, orange peel, spicy, yeasty, wheat malty nose. Interesting flavor: cinnamon, ginger, coriander, orange peel, other spices, Belgian yeasty flavor. Slightly spicy aftertaste. Certainly an interesting idea adding cinnamon to a witbier. Pretty good.
