If you love Belgian Whites like I do, get this beer. Itís one of the finest examples Iíve ever had. Lucky for me it only has to travel an hour to go from brewery to store.

Aroma is incredible. Assertive and very plesant, think baked bread, and some slightly cooked fruits, the hops come across as tropical fruits instead of pine. Taste is very good, a lot of banana toffee, and a fresh baked white bread. It is very good but I just feel like something is missing. Palate is nice too not perfect, but coats nicely. Overall a stellar beer!

My favorite New Holland Brew. It has the flavor of an IPA but is lighter which makes it more drinkable. It is a unique blend that I enjoy, especially in the summer.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, 2012 vintage(June release). Pours hazy golden amber color with a nice 1-2 finger fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big lemon, orange peel, grapefruit, pepper, wheat, coriander, herbal, and yeast spiciness. Fantastic aromas with great strength and balance. Taste of lemon, pepper, clove, orange zest, herbal, wheat, earth, floral, coriander, grapefruit, and yeast spices. Lingering notes of citrus, pepper, coriander, wheat, clove, earth, floral, and yeast spices on the finish for a good bit. Medium high carbonation and medium body; with a slightly sticky and quite crisp mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with pretty much no warming noticed after the finish as expected. Overall this is a fantastic Belgian White. Awesome balance of hops flavor, spices, and yeast character; and extremely crisp and smooth to drink. Fantastic, and I really did not expect it to be as good as it was. A welcomed surprise.

Kita (973) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 25, 2013
On tap @ Rosamunde, Brooklyn, NY. Hazy deep golden color with thin creamy white head and good lacing. Aroma is grainy with coraiander notes, spicy, yeasty and citrus hoppy. Taste is refreshing sweet and sour grainy with spicy mouthfeel and pleasant bitter finish. Medium to full body, creamy texture and lively natural carbonation in palate. Hoppy Belgian ale - thatís almost perfect combination to me...

obguthr (3636) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Classic orange peel and coriander nose, good strength. Clear amber, medium head, fair lacing. Coriander and bread crust flavor, hints of rosehip. Breadiness intensifies then fades to a lengthy finish.More spicy when quaffed. Not dull at all, very good wit.

mcnealc31 (249) - Elida, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Pours a cloudy orange with a fluffy white head, as expected, that dissipates quickly. Orange, coriander, and chamomile in the aroma. Light, crisp, and very refreshing. Mostly citrus fruit flavor, but piney hops come in at the end. Especially noticeable in the bitter finish. This is a sacchariferous and subtle beer, with balance from the hops to keep it from getting cloying. Clocks in at just 5.5% ABV, so several of these on a warm summer night would do quite well.

Aroma: lightly sweet hops/citrus and herby/original combination Appearance: translucent and bubbly/nice white head/minimal lacing/light amber in color Taste: sweet and bitter with a salty finish (I know, right?) I can taste the corriander in this one - itís a real nice mixture but the aftertaste is rather odd Palate: slick texture/medium body/higher in carbonation than usual with a bitter finish Iíd definitely buy this beer again - I like the mixture of bitter and sweet. Very drinkable when you want to go slow....I think if I drank this contuously Iíd be hic-cupping after the 3rd one

SPDickerman (913) - Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Pours hazy orange with a medium soapy white head. Smells hoppy, like orange peel or perhaps grapefruit, and coriander, and Belgian yeast. Taste is bitter, citrus, has some spice, and has hints of tropical fruits to it. Medium-bodied with a smooth, creamy texture and mild mouth-carbonation, New Holland White Hatter finishes quite bitter for a "white pale ale."

I REALLY like this one, a lot more than I expected. From a bottle, pours a slightly hazy, pale hay with no real head. Aroma is citrusy hops and belgian, bready yeast. Taste is an excellent blend of spicy, citrusy (lots of lemon), and yeast. Itís a changing tastes too, and goes in the above order before all settling together on the tongue. It doesnít last too long on the palate though. Excellent summertime addition to this always great series.
