COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Belgian White Ale is modeled after the original Belgian Witbiers brewed in monasteries during the early 14th century. The soft notes of citrus and spice are topped with a light fluffy head that finishes clean and crisp. This all natural ale is our latest seasonal brew, perfect for lounging at lake-side or celebrating at trails end...

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2008 This brew looked weak, smelled like a lite beer, and was unfortunately terribly bland.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2011 12 oz bottle. Surprised to see so few ratings. This beer pours a hazy orange body with very small white head. There is some yeast sediment on the bottle of the bottle, as well as the bottom of my glass by the time I finish. The aroma is spice, yeast, and maybe some coriander - pretty accurate for the style. The taste is very smooth with some notes of spice and citrus and even some hop - but just slightly. Great witbier - really enjoyed this one.

Had at the brewery. Pours a cloudy yellow as a good white should. The aroma was citrus and spice. A nice mix. The taste was smooth and full of citrus again. The taste didnít quite match up with the flavor though and I was left wanting a more complete flavor.

(Bottle (stamped "031908") from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/maine/wiscasset target=blank>Treats) Pours cloudy light gold-yellow with a very slight grayish tint. Tall off-white head. Aroma of citrus (orange, lemon) and spice. Mouthfeel light, fairly smooth, pleasant. Tastes refreshing and citrusy (orange, lemon) with prominent spice note (coriander?). Chalk it up as a decent, drinkable summer wheat refresher and a slight bit better than many Iíve had.

Pale hazy yellow. Aroma is standard belgian oranges and coriander. Yeasty palate with some banana and spice. Good but this style is starting to bore me.

<bBottle. I should start by saying that I am not a fan of Wits in general but this one was so smooth and satisfying. Poured a cloudy yellow body with thin head. Aroma was spices, corriander. Flavor is light spices, yeasty and smooth. Great for a warm day.

blipp (5974) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2008
Bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma is light citrus, primarily lemon, and spice. Medium body. Flavor is zesty lemon, a light note of pine, a bit of spice, and a light note of soap which is somehow not off-putting. Pretty good, I thought is was an interesting take on the style.

Beautiful pour, but what stands out is the aroma. A unique balance of the citrus and spices is evident to the nose right from the start. The flavor is first strong with cirtus, almost a lemon-lime, then is soothes with nice blend of spices. Very nice. Great for the Summer.

keepersj12 (2673) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - APR 26, 2008
A little above average. Pleasant aroma with a pale yellow cloudy look. Heavy citrus flavor almost lemomy. A bit too sour for me. Very nice crisp clean finish though.

Love the style but didnít love this one. It poured a bit lighter than I had expected with a head that fizzed a bit too rapidly. Aroma was OK, lacking a bit of spicy notes. Itís heavily citrus on the nose (all lemon) and the flavor plays out the same way. A bit too citric on the palate. Itís a good beer, and quite refreshing, but wonít hold up well against the best witbiers that itís competing against.
