COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian style white ales have a long history of unique ingredients, as brewers experimented with spices discovered during the spice trade. For our hazy brew we found a refreshing combination of crisp wheat, the tangy sweetness of tangerine & orange peel, and the subtle spiciness of coriander & grains of paradise. Cheers!

Nephilium (1318) - Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2013
Mild orange aroma, with the underlying hint of wheat. Pours a cloudy light straw, with a thin white head. Light body, very gentle flavor, with wheat, orange, and just a touch of spices. Not a bad beer to drink on summer, if youíre looking for something light.

Bottle. Musty citrus, wheat malt, and light spice aroma. Hazy straw gold with a large white head. Sweet orange, lemon, bready wheat, and light coriander flavor. Medium creamy body, light carbonation.

UncleKorm (736) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 27, 2013
Bottle poured a hazy yellow hue w/ a quickly diminishing fizzy white head and only a hint of lacing. Mild aroma of fresh dough, orange peel, and coriander. Initial flavor is a light sweet with almost no bitter in the finish. Taste is bready, with sweet orange and tangerine, and some yeast. Light bodied, lively carbonation, watery mouthfeel and a faint dry finish.

Caytinator (895) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 27, 2013
12oz bottle. Translucent, dark straw color. Small head, small-medium bubbles. Citrus-y aroma, nothing bad in it, pretty good. The taste notes are citrus fruit, medium-bitter, somewhat spicy, medium-sour, little sweet, average body. Iím not a huge fan, but pretty well brewed. Not a terrible beer, but not a worthy belgian white.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 26, 2013
Nice white. Pours hazy light orange with a thin white head, light lacing. Aroma is big coriander and citrus. Flavor much the same with a nice balance and clean finish.

Metalchopz (2207) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
Part of their Spring Thaw 2013 mixed pack bought in Montpelier, VT. Hazy golden colour with a warm cap and small lace. Orange and light spices aromas. Even hints of maple. Refreshing mouthfeel. Orange taste with some mild coriander. Grain comes out in the aftertaste with honey notes. A different witbier that is interesting.

Ericular (565) - Minnesota, USA - APR 24, 2013
Pours a hazy orange with short-lived head that disappears and leaves little to no lacing. Aroma is a little orange rind and some unappealing funky yeast. Taste is a less bad with more hints of citrus, and a soft bite of carbonation. Palate is not bad, but overall this just isnít appealing enough to enjoy.

Garbageman (443) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - APR 24, 2013
From bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with nice head that lingered. Aroma was similar to a blue moon with sweet orange, spices and a little lemon. Taste followed and added a little yeast and more sweetness.

Sampled on 4/20/13. This Belgian Witbier pours a somewhat cloudy medium orange color from a 12oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head with good retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity, wheaty and sweet, with tangerine, orange and coriander. A medium bodied Witbier. The malts are wheaty, fruity and sweet. The hops are earthy and spicy. Fairly lively carbonation. Nice balance of flavors, spicy, fruity and sweet. Itís a little sweet overall, but the spices somewhat counter act the sweetness, especially the pepper at the finish. It would make a nice summer session ale on a hot summer afternoon. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

12oz bottle, courtesy of Boston Beer. Thanks! Pours a hazy, peach-juice color; fine-bubbled off-white head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma also has a peachy/citrus quality to it, on the sweet side, with a mellow spice character that matches up seamlessly; would prefer more wheat-y dryness and less fruit. Medium to medium-high body, medium-high CO2, and a fair amount of sweetness throughout: again, peachy and tangerine notes, though more of a juicy presence than pith, and more mouth-filling coriander than a dry peppery spice; overly sweet and fruit-forward. While not necessarily "coriander soup," as the critique often goes elsewhere, but too sweet for my tastes.
