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!

keanex (1629) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - APR 7, 2013
Best before June 2013.
Appearance: The body is hazy with a straw to amber hue, a bit darker than I like in a witbier, The head is also lacking a little bit in height, but is dense and leaves a creamy coating on top.
Aroma: The aroma reminds me of lemon scented dish soap. Itís not awful, but itís not pleasing either.
Taste: Slightly spicy, slightly sweet, with prominent lemon mostly on the finish. This is okay.
Palate: Medium to full bodied, lively carbonation.
Overall: This is an okay beer, but I think it comes off weak. The lemon comes off as dish soap in quality and I donít enjoy it.

wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 6, 2013
12 fl oz / 355mL bottle poured into a Sam Adams glass. Aroma: Sour yeast, some citrus and spice. Appearance: Hazy, milky yellow. No head. Taste: Starts off with spiced oranges and tangerines, and ends yeasty and bready. Not bad. Pretty average. Palate: Exceptionally fizzy and light. Lingers a little, but it fades quickly. Overall: Pretty decent witbier. Better than some other ones out there, but not my favorite by far.

Gachupines (1091) - USA - APR 6, 2013
Hazy golden color with a decent white head. Aroma is a tiny bit of coriander with some orange peel. Flavor is a nice bit of spice, definite notes of coriander. A little orange peel in the finish. Nice and light, easily drinkable.

bagalagalaga (151) - Indiana, USA - APR 3, 2013
I prefer the Imperial White, but this is a much better deal from Sam Adams. Itís got the nice orange/coriander combination swirling around in the hazy brew that is just really nice.

Trev (2015) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 31, 2013
hazy gold pour with a thin white head. aroma is earthy wet hay.getting some subtle tangerine/orange under that. light spice. Flavour has a soft citrusy sweetness to it. definite house yeast (?) character combines with the grains of paradise to make sure you know itís a BBC brew. Bit maltier than the summer ale with a nice soft sweetness.

JDBaker11058 (1567) - Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Appearance: cloudy orangey gold with one finger of bright white head shrinking to a creamy cap, with generous lace curtains. Aroma: marmalade, cracked wheat, yeast, and a bit of white peppercorn. Taste: a bit like orangina, with apricots, tangerine, and a grainy wheat cracker note over some pepper, coriander and general spice. Finish: tangy, slightly sweet, with a zingy combo of carbonation and spice to freshen the very end. Notes: Surprisingly excellent.

jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a cloudy, dark gold with minimal head. Aroma of corriander and orange citrus. Taste is light sweet. Citrus and...this tastes like fucking fruity pebbles. I cant get that out of my head and now its all i taste. Light bodied with a relatively thick texture. Lively carbonation but not too long of a finish. Overall, not bad. Reminds me of how a blue moon should taste.
