COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our interpretation of this classic and refreshing Belgian style ale is brewed with organic pilsner and wheat malts from Canada. Freshly ground coriander and Curacao orange peel, along with a special Wit yeast strain, contribute wonderful orange and citrus aromas and a crisp, yet silky, mouthfeel.

Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow. Not much head, some lacing. Weak nose of lilies and Belgian-ness. Mouth is light bodied, some silkiness, slight yeasty spice and lilies, finish has an almost licorice-ness. While Iím not a big Wit beer fan, I liked this one and would drink again.

Pours golden...interedting this is not hazy for a wit pretty clear. Aroma is belgian spice citrus lemon and a faint hint of banana. Pretty standard wit aroma. Flavor is clean lemon and light malt and finishes dry with some belgian spice at the end good wit beer not as malty as others...lighter than most

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2012 Re-rate: Ok. The first one I had was a bad canning run. The brewery gave me a new and free six=pack to try a and itís a fantastic witbier. Itís reminiscent of Blue Moon, but just much fresher and better flavor. You can smell the coriander and orange peel as well as some other spices. It pours a somewhat cloudy golden orange color. I nice fluffy head with some lacing. Taste is fresh orange and coriander with some other cereal and spices. Goes down smooth and leaves a nice taste in your mouth. Definitely want to drink this nice Belgian white. Original rating: Iím hoping I got a bad can of this, because it was mediocre and bordered on bad. Poured a pale yellow out of the can. No head whatsoever and no lacing. Almost no carbonation. Taste was like a muted version of a Belgian Wit but really no flavor to speak of and it smelled bland and maybe stale. I have liked all of their stuff so far, thatís why this poor beer took me by surprise. Might try again just to be sure, but other than a bad batch, this beer would be a big #Fail. I actually poured half of it out.

Had on tap at the Village Tap for their Local Tap Takeover. Served in an 8 oz. taster glass. A: Pours a very hazy light straw color with a nice half finger white head that subsides in a light film ring. S: Smells of subtle yeast and wheat with some nice pepper spice and citrus esters. T: Typical bubblegum yeast with a spiced backbone. Some coriander and light pepper with a decent amount of citrus, but nothing to substantial. M: While it went down nicely, there was absolutely no taste left on the palate. Itís as if I didnít even drink it. Very odd. O: A decent witbier, but I would pass on it given another opportunity. The mouthfeel really did it in for me and the flavors were kind of muted. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 09-02-2011

12 oz. can. Pours a hazed straw yellow color with a medium white head. Aroma of mild wheat, coriander, orange. Flavor is mild, with spritzes of citrus and spice accenting a refreshing wheat malt bill. The body is light, nice spritzy carbonation. Finishes on a bit of a spicy note.

On tap, and served to a large, house snifter at the Bavarian Lodge in Lisle, IL.. Displayed a hazed, light orangy straw color, with modest, off white head foam that quickly diminished to a ring & film, and left some light, wavy lacing on the glass. The nose was light yeast, fruitiness as lemon & orange, light sweetness, and spice as coriander. The body was light, the effervescence was lively, with the flavor also presenting a low hop bitterness and a fleeting hint of wheat cracker. A basically flavorful and sessionable Wit.

8/11/12. GTMW - from a can, I believe. Hazy golden orange pour with a nice off-white head. Big citrus and spice in the aroma with touches of tangy wheat, cream, and banana. Parallel flavor with emphasis on citrus and spice. Not bad.

On draft at brewery poured a golden yellow color, aromas of wheat, orange eel, light corriander, and some light malt. Flavors are the same with a nice blend of orange and wheat. Nice light and refreshing solid wheat beer.

Hazy golden pour. Creamy head with some nice lacing. Citrus and grain on the nose. Taste is pretty mild. Some citrus. Lots of grain in taste. Mouth is very creamy. After taste is a little strong.
