Editor’s Note: If you had a traditional orange peel and coriander witbier (Belgian Wit, Belgian White, White Ale, or Winter White) from a Rock Bottom brewpub listed at 5.1-5.5% area, it goes under this parent listing.

Pale and with a touch of haze, this ale gets it’s unique flavor from orange peel, coriander, and Belgian yeast.

jcnielsen (2423) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 30, 2015
On tap at Rock Bottom in Charlotte. Pours a clear golden color with white head. Overtly coriander, spicy aromas with some notes of belgian yeast esters and wheat. Very spicy and coriander strong in flavors also, almost a little tart with some wheat and orange peel. Not good.

notalush (5222) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Tap at the Chicago location - fairly bland and watery beer - dry, thankfully, but over spiced - peppery in the mouth, with a lot of herbal soapiness - a lot of citrus zestiness - a nice soft and lightly sweet wheatiness develops late, but just too spiced to be very enjoyable.

Christpuncher (1701) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Strong orange and coriander start with a sweet band bitter finish. Smells very citruscy. Pours cloudy cream in colorb. Ha a draft at Rock bottom. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kramer (5320) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Tap, Seattle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body with a small frothy white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is spice driven, but there’s a light chemical-like note in here, beyond the normal somewhat soapy character that I sometimes get from coriander. The flavor is very thin, focused on the coriander and orange peel, not much in the way of wheat or yeast character. Very short finish. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with fizzy carbonation, a little too heavily filtered. A rather bland and run of the mill Wit.

DuffMan (7510) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 13, 2015
On tap @ the brewpub in Seattle, listed as "Seattle Belgian Wit". Cloudy pale yellow, creamy white head. Sweet spicy and wheaty profile, (approaching Blue Moon in sweetness but not quite), citrus undertones, dry finish. Nice enough.

Crisp, citrus, coriander. Clean. I looked it more than some of the Rock Bottom beers.

bytemesis (4104) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 28, 2014
Tap in Arlington, VA. Pours cloudy pale yellow, large white puffy head dissipates slowly with great lacing. Aroma is wheat, coriander, lemon, a touch of smoke. Light sweet, wheaty, lemon and coriander in the taste. Light body. Another solid beer for its style.

On tap at the brewpub with Kara, andy and Patty. Pours a cloudy light orange with a thick white head. Aroma of citrus, coriander,clove, bready malt. Flavor is sweet citrus and bready up front with some spices in the finish. Smooth palate, very easy drinking.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Serving: Draft at Rock Bottom Charlotte. It pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Strong orange zest nose. The flavor is overwhelming orange zest, coriander, and perfume notes with an off sweetness. Cloying and leaves a film on the tongue. Not for me.
