COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2011 A really nice rendition of the wit style.+++Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a cloudy color with a slight orange tint and a large white head. The aroma was a pleasant mix of wheat and citrus. The flavor was mild, wheaty, mildly spicy and had a nice citrus flavor. Well done.
