COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the style of a Belgian Wit. A special blend of coriander, orange zest and unmalted wheat help to make this a remarkably refreshing summer beer.

tmoreau (2578) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 9, 2014
On tap at this year’s Chicago Beer Society annual picnic. According to the brewery, future labeling will also include the organic description as was posted on the keg. Self dispensed to a clear, plastic shaker, showing a hazed, orangey straw color, with a frothy, white head, and good cling to the abundant lacing. The nose was soft grain, orange peel, and light spice as coriander. Light bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste offered a little citrus, and low hop bitterness. Refreshing, and nothing more expected than a very appropriate brew for the occasion.

(Bottle). Hazy golden yellow complexion. Flavors include citrus, lemon, mild wheat and yeast. Smooth palate. Underrated for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

weihenweizen (1881) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle, March 19, 2013, poured into a weizen glass. Pours clear light golden with small bright white head. Aroma is nice light coriander, medium body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is malty, some coriander, and hints of orange.

ARH (568) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 22, 2014
On tap, poured into a plastic sampler. The nose is a dry spice and tangerine peel, but relatively muted for a wit. The light hazy, straw color keeps a light, white cloudy surface of head with a thick creamy ring and leaves a decent amount of lace down the glass. The taste is a medium sweet and bitter - balanced well. The thinnish texture has lots of soft carbonation. The medium body finishes spicy and orange scone (light on the orange though). The aftertaste is a clean, light, spice and grass.

On draught at 2014 oobf - pours grayish golden. Nose of yeast, spices, grass. Taste is of cloves, spice, and citrus. Quite refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice and refreshing. Quite smooth and thin. Fine foam and easy to drink with any pairing if it is an snack.

SDalkoholic (2179) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle from Ashur Liquor in variety 8 pack: Poured a straw blonde with slight white tint and no formation of head. As for the aroma, there is almost no smell to discuss other than a hint towards a pinch of coriander. The flavor is bland with only a hint of coriander spicing and a touch of orange peel that ends up tasting artificial in the end anyways.

BeerCoff4025 (28) - Iowa, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Poured from bottle into a tulip glass with almost no visible head. Citrus aroma was apparent immediately after pouring, came out as a lightly cloudy golden color. Very sweet and citrusy taste. Was hoping for a little less sweetness and more wheat flavor. Overall, an average beer. Would be more enjoyable to drink during the summer time.

Dacrza (544) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2014
DATE TASTED: December 28, 2013... GLASSWARE: Hoegaarden tumbler...OCCASION: post-NFL playoffs... APPEARANCE: hazy, yellow-orange hue--approaches pale orange juice--with a thin white head; reasonable lacing... AROMA: faint drifts of orange intermingle with wheaty esters--weak and ephemeral... PALATE: rather thin and flat; slow carbonation--swiftly consumed! probably a thirst quencher in the summer months, but not such a suitable companion in the winter...TASTE: softened, suppressed peach, orange zest, subtle lemon...a watery, tuned down wit... OVERALL: tough to hate on this one, as it may well be the season weakens its experience; still, the overall effect is an unmemorable one, an American wit that cleans and rinses an already clean palate...
