COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An artisan white ale brewed in the classic biere blanche tradition. Spiced with orange peel and coriander, you'll find it refreshingly tart, with a wonderful dry finish.

From a bottle shared by Chuck. Yellow body with intense carbonation suspending a fluffy white head. Sulphury aroma - pear skin, sulphur, a patch of soured malt. The sulphur that I couldn’t get away from in the aroma disappears once you sip. It’s replaced by lactic grapefruit rind and lightly toasted saltine. Some coriander and floral elements. I like the brett addition to this wit.

750ml Bottle thanks to Styles: Pours to a beautiful bright and pale yellow, mostly opaque even with held to the light, with an enormous frothy white head that lasts throughout the entire glass. Very miniscule bubbles can be seen gently rising to the surface. A touch of mild lemongrass and wheat rise to meet the nose, followed by citrus, coriander, fresh orange rind (almost unripened), a hint of pepper, musty hay-filled sack, light nutmeg, spices, and gentle wood. The flavors unfold with a brief lemongrass, followed immediately by a slightly tart wheat and light citrus that is very refreshing to the palate. The orange rind comes through towards the middle, and definitely more after a few successive sips, there may even be a slight hint of grapefruit rind here too. The spicy yeast, coriander, and hints of pepper come out towards the end, but are quickly replaced by a quick retronasal hop note, then moderately dry wheat, and dusty hay at the finish. Medium bodied, excellent natural carbonation, tiny, well-integrated bubbles tingle and create a filling but not heavy feeling. It does seem to be just a bit on the tart side, and maybe a bit hoppy, with more oak (dry white wine-like barrel?) than I’m used to tasting, but it is well-integrated into the whole beer. Very nice.

(750 ml bottle: Obtained in trade with Eyedrinkale, thanks Mike!) Big, frothy, white head takes quite some time to settle out, thanks in part to the army of carbonation bubbles that rise at break-neck speed to the surface. But as it does settle, a thick, foamy curtain of lace coats the entire glass and shows exceptional longevity. Lots of coriander and citrus in the nose. Wheat, yeast, mild lemony citrus, coriander, gently bitter orange peel, all present and all wonderfully balanced. Not really all that tart to me, but it’s not even mildly sweet. Body is light-medium and carbonation is lively but not expansive. With the spices, citrus and carbonation, this beer is very refreshing on the palate. Bright golden yellow, only somewhat cloudy until the final pour when a significant amount of sediment finally flows into my glass. Heading, retention and lacing remain visually stunning for the entire session, and I’ve dragged this session out for nearly three hours (so the beer is certainly at room temperature). A well-made witbier, certainly one of the more balanced American-made witbiers I’ve sampled. Nice job.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 1, 2006
(750ml Bottle) This beer is light and sharply acidic, which makes for one dry and complex brew. Freshly ground coriander emanates from the beers thick foam. Citric acid both in the lemon and orange variety make this concoction electric. Dry as a bone, that pretty much sums up the finish. This beer is pretty damn good, kind of like a cross between a wit and a lambic.

Lemony gold color with a nice rocky white head. Spicy, wheaty, citrus aroma. Grassy flavor is light, spritzy and slightly tart. Very easy to drink. Clean and well carbonated.

BigNasty (55) - South Lyon, Michigan, USA - JAN 30, 2006
Pours with a massive head, lovely citrus aroma. Fairly thin mouthfeel, VERY sour citrus flavor. I usually like Whites, but this one is far too sour for me.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - JAN 30, 2006
Pours unclear golden and a frothy white head. Full aroma of yeast, orange and citrus with a slight tone of alcohol (!). Wheat and yeast flavor with lots of fruit in there as well. White pepper notes. Flat mouthfeel. Rather unbalanced, but interesting.
