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.

A cloudy golden color with a white head. A flavor of banana and spices...sweet banana. The arom is much the same. Smooth...subtle aftertaste but, otherwise has full flavor.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 20, 2003
Orange, not terribly hazy. Little/no head. Aroma is of orange, light citrus, coriander. Flavor is clean and dry, moderately grassy and earthy. Good spice presence.

TAR (2435) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - AUG 10, 2003
Gloomy pear hued. Sandy, dense white foam. Crackery aroma with notes of coriander, cream, straw, and citrus. Hints of clove, dough, candle wax, melon, honey, herbs, and delicate floral noble hops. Yeasty and musty. Expansive creamy carbonation. Medium-light bodied. Starts tangy and citrus with some fresh hop flavors alongside notes of flowers and citrus. Empty finish of artificial sweetener and softened phenols. Lingering earthy noble hop presence with a touch of doughy pale malts and faint peppery undertones. Yet another boring and unimaginative wit, completely devoid of body and character.

Mild belgian aroma, could use more hops? Spicy belgian taste in the palate. Great body, decent beer. Cheers.

Damn this is good. Just about as good as what is on TV right now....FOOTBALL FOOTBALL FOOTBALL!!!! The first game of the year...my beloved Jets against the overrated dirty-playing Buckaneers.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2003
Oregon Brewers Fest. Cloudy with a light golden color. Spicy, floral scents. The spices are well balanced on the palate and although somewhat light in flavor, it's still very complex. A nice summer beer.

krisbierjaeger (844) - dolores, Colorado, USA - JUL 27, 2003
surprisingly milky golden, the color a whitewashed wall turns in the angled light of evening. head was as attractive and attention getting as a tight-shirted pair of bra-less perkies. aroma of a very well-sanded spruce board, or like the inside of an acoustic guitar, a bit of coriander and some green produce such as celery and bell pepper, light flowery notes like lingering perfume on a thin summer dress. very quenching grassy toast flavors appropriately awash in doughy yeasts and hints of orange. i'm not real ga-ga about the wit style, but i give this quencher at least one "ga" for sure.

Cloudy straw color with a small white head. Aroma of coriander, wheat, pepper, and oranges. Pleasant and refreshing spicey wheat taste. An excellent example.

Very light,golden,wit. Decent head,ok retention. Aroma is balanced:wheat,yeast,spices. Mouthfeel is well carbonated and not too light. Spices are better balanced in this one than most.Very dry,refreshing finish.Pretty good example.
