This traditional un-filtered wheat beer is our first ever Belgian offering. Implementing an authentic "wit" yeast strain from Belgium, coriander seed and Curacao bitter orange peel gives this beer a unique fruit and citrus zest character along with a refreshing tart finish.

on tap-pours a foamy white head with hazy yellow/orange color. Aroma is sweet fruit, pleasant, refreshing. Taste is fruit, wheat, hops. Good carbonation.

Splendid coriander milkiness and leafiness tower with aplomb over a quenchingly bitter wheat bite...Tart citrus fruit encourage the following flavorful gulps...A scrumptious unfiltered wit...

Cloudy light yellow. Superbly balanced aroma where the coriander takes the lead, but never obstructs the fresh, creamy malt and the generous citrus profile. The flavour could last a bit longer, but the balance is great, spiciness elevated just to th right level. Great malt base in here, wheaty, refreshing and delicate. Somehow crisp palate, a bit too bubbly for my liking, but this remains a top take on the style. Bravo!

Poured a hazy golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of lavender, toast, coriander, honey, citrus fruits, and a bit of banana. Taste of citrus, tart wheat, a little sweeter toffee, coriander, and mild spices, with a dry finish.

Growler from Dirtymike at the 6/4/05 Mondial Gathering. Aroma of lemon, coriander, bubblegum and pils malt. Pretty aptly describes any Belgian wit, but this one was just so. Light, pale-white-gold color, hazy and with a thin white head, but some lacing. Dry coriander and plant stalks in the flavor, with a fresh green hops flavor that is unusual, but not unpleasant for the style. Dry wheat on the end and some bubblegum lingering. Lightly peppery carbonation, with large bubbles giving a fluffy texture. Medium to medium-light bodied.

Lemon citrus, lactic, creamy aroma with fair coriander/ nutmeg/bitter orange spiciness. Opaque yellow gold with fair white head that recedes to lasting cover with some nice lacing. Spices emerge in the crisp wheat flavour with a fair citrus-lemon character. Creamy texture and moderately strong carbonation. A decent example of a style that seems hard to nail. Sampled at the brewpub with dirtymike, MartinT, muzzlehatch, Rastacouere and Volgon.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 29, 2005
New England Road Trip Easter 05 with MartinT, tiggmtl and Rastacouere, beer #9. Small sample at the brewpub, also in the company of Volgon and brewer Dirtymike. Very light, opaque thick yellow with a strong lasting white head...light, sweet spicy nose by turns full of coriander, vanilla and lemon...light, dry body, very crisp, a little bland...nice full body, stinging pepper to finish. Not much of a fan of this style, but this is as well done as any brewpub version.

Growler shared by someone tonight, thanks. Wow thats quite the crystal clear straw color. Light hints of lemon and coriander, watery thin body. I think this cleared too quickly and dropped most of the flavor. Meh!
