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!

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 (7956) - 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.

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 (4094) - 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 (198) - 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 (2165) - 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.

jmcgavin12 (492) - Madison, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Pours a cloudy orange with a frothy white head. Aroma is a combination of wheat citrus and tangerine. Light carbonation and sweet flavor with an easy finish. Delicately spicy notes pervade the whole beer.

sailracer (413) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with foamy head that dissipates quickly. Tart, spicy taste that isn’t backed up by any malt. I generally like Wits but this one didn’t do it for me. I can’t quite put my finger on why, though.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2013 Veggy/herbal nose. Golden. Tastes of peaches. Medium mouth feel. Its okay. Wanted to really like this but its not holding up.

Pours a hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma is full of wheat and coriander. The flavor has a lot of coriander and grains of paradise as well as some orange peel and wheat. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
