COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a Belgian wheat beer. Ours is made with crushed Coriander seed, orange peel and a special yeast strain. It is crisp and refreshing with a citrus aroma and tart finish. Creamy on the palate, it is a hazy brew due to the special yeast, which enhances the overall taste experience. Available in May and June.

In short: A typical brewpub witbier (wheat, bananas, coriander, etc.). Inoffensively easy to drink
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Almost clear dark blonde body topped by a small white head
In long: The relatively strong note (for the style) has bananas, orange peels and coriander. Taste is more of the same. Wheat, bananas, orange peels and coriander. Finish is a little dry. Body was a little slim (even for the style) and the carbonation could have been more lively. As expected, nothing special. I don’t know if I’m more a beer geek or a computer geek. After carefully examining the beer menu at Marthas I wanted to drink everything and wondered what font they used.

En fût. Verre de dégustation directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Légère odeur d’agrumes et de clous de Girofles. Apparence: La couleur est blonde voilée avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’une mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de blés et d’agrumes avec une pointe d’épices. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Présence de blés en arrière goût. (Rating #3151)

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 25, 2005
Sampled onn draught at the brewpub 5/20/2005 with The Motor City Beerman, ClarkVV. Pale opaque yellow with a light greenish tinge at the bottom of the 5 oz sampler, little head and lacing....huge sweet lemon meringue pie aroma, orange & cherry also present in the moderately yeasty mix...oh, alas, the flavor doesn’t keep up, very dry and one-dimensionally lemony with just a hint of iron at the finish...somewhat reminiscent of unsweetened lemonade. Drinkable, but the nose promised much that the body couldn’t deliver.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 24, 2005
On draught at the brewpub on 5/20/2005 with Muzzlehatch. Low to moderately hazy pale-gold color, with almost a green tinge to it. Small white head quickly recedes to cover, with some lacing. Aroma is Belgian yeast, lots of lemon, light notes of bubble gum and cotton candy. Fluffy, lightly dry, with some coriander and quite a high strength (especially as it was served outdoors out of a small convex sampler glass). Flavor is mostly Belgian yeast esters of bubble gum and light clove with a bit of banana and some coriander/lemon acidity on the finish. Body is very light, thinning heavily on the finish, with a moderate amount of wateriness.

AirForceHops (3514) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 21, 2013
Draft. Nose is spot on for style, wheat, coriander and oranges. Flavor is a traditional Belgian Wit. Orange peel, coriander with a decent wheat yeast body. Coriander seed is light, thankfully. Medium body with a sweet citrus finish.

Cloudy. Bananas and fruit juice. Taste is also banana heavy. Yeasty and fruity. Wheat heavy probably my favorite of the bunch.

On tap: Light clove aroma, hazy yellow color, great aftertaste. It’s good to see American pubs making this kind of style.

Part of an 8 beer sampler at the restaurant. Enjoyed the restaurant and all the beers I tasted were good though nothing really stood out. Their white beer was actually pretty good for what it is though I’m not really that into the style.
