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!

BlackHaddock (4140) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2014
10th July 2014 bottle from a mixed Samuel Adams pack my son-in-law bought because I like ’different beers’. It was hot and I wanted something to cool me down, this did so without testing my taste buds too greatly. Misty yellow body with a full white head. Subdued aroma and flavours of the usual ’Witbier’ style, orangey, wheaty and spicy. This was OK, but it is not my sort of brew and although I have tried a few over the years I struggle to really enjoy them: scored objectively.

Pours a pale yellow with a persistent white head. Fairly thin mouthfeel with some lemon and orange notes.

jrob21 (2672) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Single from total wine. Lemon little bit of spice and wheat. More on the pepper side of the equation. A little quick on the finish. Many better whites put there.

robinvboyer (3261) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2014
Watery malted wheat with weak citrus and predominantly lemon notes. Muddy mouth feel. Low carb. Medium bitter finish, sweet bready, yeasty wheat flavor, slight tropical fruit finish. Nothing special.

b3shine (5831) - Indiana, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle to half-pint. Looks solid; a hazy apricot with foamy eggshell head. Smells yeasty and spicy. Tastes like it smells with some pine. Fuller-bodied. Not bad, but a bit unbalanced.

skmikeg (999) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Pour a pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is of wheat bread, tangerine, oranges, and coriander. Taste is similar to the aroma. Has a medium-light body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, crisp, semi dry, medium finish. Overall, a pretty nice witbier that is a refreshing summer beer.

AgentAle (790) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 29, 2014
Aroma is lemon grass, citrus, banana and sweet grains. Taste is sweet grains, citrus, coriander, banana and slight bitterness that finishes smooth. Appearance is a gold hazy body with a thin bubbly head that retains fairly well.

Reynolds314 (2440) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Wit with a bit much spice and not enough beer flavor. Watery clove seltzer is about all I get. Thin body, and boring.

jcnielsen (2257) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours a orangish color with white head. Orange peel, coriander, spicy, yeasty, citrus aromas. A lot of orange peel, coriander, and spices in the flavors. Pretty easy drinking, but a little overly spiced for my taste.

coachd (146) - Missouri, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Aroma of coriander, lemon zest and yeast. Very similar scent to Sam Adams Summer Ale, but has a fake floor cleaner quality to it. Looks hazy, cloudy, light yellow kind of like a hefeweisen. Tastes like a malt beverage, very bland and watery. I guess the alcohol is well hidden because you cannot taste it. The best way I can describe it is watered down lemonade. Completely devoid of palate. Don’t drink this, it’s awful.
