Crisp and refreshing, this beer has a white haze from a special strain of Belgian yeast which is partially responsible for the spicy character in the finish. Coriander and orange was also added to the boil and conditioner to give this beer a brilliant uniqueness you won't find in any other style.

AirForceHops (6302) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Draft @ Union Station, Providence, R.I. Standard pint shows classic hazy yellow with the aroma of orange peel and wheat. Flavor is wheat and coriander with a tart orange peel. It has a light under lying sourness that does NOT blend well with the other flavors. Easy enough to drink but something is just a little off. Not the worse Wit Iíve ever experienced. Perhaps this batch was just slightly off. Oh well.

ROGUE (2200) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - DEC 23, 2009
On tap at brewhouse. Poured a cloudy pale straw yellow with a fluffy, white head. Aromas of orange and lemon peel, slight coriander, and some slight banana. Flavor follows the aroma along with hints of vanilla and herbal spice. Light to medium in mouthfeel with a slightly dry finish.

PWalk (337) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2005
Light spiciness with a decent bit of citrus in the aroma. Nothing outstanding though makes this beer rather middle of the road.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2005 On draught, 4/02/05 at J Harvards, Framingham. Served with a lemon, which I promptly removed. Light yellow-gold body, slight haze with a bubbly, off-white head, mostly dissipating in to a cover of bubbles. Aroma of grass, light hay, bubble gum and lemon. Flavor is very grassy, with straw, light vienna malt and a touch of honey and dry wheat. Some light bubble gum, very dry, with drying yeast and a touch of lemon and orange peel. Not terribly flavorful, but at the same time, not terribly watery. Could stand a great deal more malt sweetness, more interesting esters and a bit fuller mouthfeel.
