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!

FROTHINGSLOSH (4843) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2013
After a number of pretty mediocre attempts as doing a Belgian Wit Boston Beer Company finally managed to pull it off. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy apricot color with a medium sized foamy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweetish orange, honey and bread. The flavor was musty yet fairly sweet with notes of coriander, orange, bread, biscuit and honey. Long musty orange and coriander finish. Moderately full bodied. Well done.

Very sweet, light, and mildly fruity. Refreshing, little to no head but non-offensive, chill taste.

brokensail (10645) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Hazy golden pour with a big white head. Sweet bread, wheat, and a light coriander note. Mild lemon zest tartness, yeast, white pepper, and a weird sugar note. Very sweet flavor of bread, sugar, and wheat. Coriander, white pepper, and lots of citric tartness. A bit of orange, zesty finish, and overly sweet.

StefanSD (2088) - Lakeside, California, USA - MAR 3, 2013
12 oz bottle from a mixed seasonal case. Pours a hazy gold color with white head that soon recedes to a film. The aroma is medium in strength with lemons, rock candy and spices. The taste, like the aroma, is big on lemons, but also present are some oranges and mild spices. Malt base is fairly neutral with just a bit of bread. The palate is silky smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes short. Overall: Its OK; nothing objectionable, but nothing to wow me either.

HighlanderOne (989) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Poured from bottle. Nice fruity aroma. Cloudy gold, thin white head. Has all the right flavors - fruit, citrus, coriander, spice, pepper and yeast - but it is too watery and lacks depth. Would make a fine lawnmower beer tho.

shrubber85 (7387) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Bottle. Lemon/orange, coriander and wheat malt aroma. Hazy golden yellow with large white head. Slightly sweet lemon peel, coriander, and wheat malt flavor. Low carbonation. Okay.

jkwalking05 (3646) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Cloudy orange with an average sized white head. Aroma is of orange, lemon, yeast wheat. Taste is of orange tang, tangerine, wheat, coriander, oranges, with a lingering tangerine finish.

ben4321 (3823) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from Sparrow-Downtown, 3/1/13

Aroma: The aroma is citrus/orange zest, some wheat, and plenty of coriander/spice
Appearance: It pours a hazy gold-orange color with a small off-white head and light lace
Flavor: Tastes much the same, lots of orange and other citrus with plenty of spice and some wheat
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has average-plus carbonation, and a lasting, tingly finish
Overall Impression: This is a pretty solid one. It is nothing special, but it feels fairly on style, and is sessionable and enjoyable enough. It probably goes without saying, but I’d be significantly happier to see this one on a menu then a Blue Moon.

finn1918 (193) - Georgia, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Pours a hazy light orange with a fluffy head that lingers for a bit and then collapses with no lacing. Aroma is orange rind, coriander, wet hay, and yeast. Taste is light and citrusy at first, but leads to an astringent yeast and citrus peel that detracts from the experience. Reminds me strikingly of the first batch of Sima (Finnish fermented lemonade) that I made with too much yeast and forgot to remove the lemon rind. Refreshing and crisp enough, but this further reinforces that I do not like wheat beers.

dnstone (2134) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Pours a hazed golden with nice light white head. Wheaty-citrus aroma. Light (with signature Sam maltiness) and defined orangey-tangerine notes in the finish.
