COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer style is over 400 years old, and continues to enjoy overwhelming popularity. Offering low hop bitterness, it is easy to enjoy. It pours very hazy, with a light gold color... we say itís like summertime in a glass. Bitter orange peel and fresh coriander add zest and depth to this light, refreshing beer.

A: The pour is a hazy light yellow/straw color with just a small white head. S: Starts off with a very bright citrus and citrus peel aroma. There is a lot of wheat and some light spices, which is pretty much how I like my witbiers. Itís very fruity, which is sort of surprising. And of course, thereís a bit of yeast. T: The flavor is also very fruity, which you donít normally expect for a witbier, but I think itís great. Heavy on the citrus with only mild spices. Lots of wheat bread and sweet malts with a touch of yeast. M: Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. O: This was very light and refreshing and had very nice aromas and flavors. One of the best witbiers Iíve had.

NielsenRatings (8275) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Bottle @ home, picked up in Charlotte. Pours a fairly murky dull yellow appearance with a dull white head. A lot of spicy coriander in the nose. Orange citrus / citrus peel, spicy yeast nose. Kind of soapy / potpourri flavor. A massive amount of coriander in the flavor. Low sweetness and bitterness. Not too great.

Tap at Blind Tiger Local Food Bash. Hazy yellow straw pour. Spicy aroma with notes of lemon and coriander. Lots of zesty lemon peel. Fresh and clean - itís a pretty decent wit.
