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!

It pours a hazy golden orange into my nonic. Foamy, clingy lacing spider webs around the glass. A thick one inch white foamy head appears and lasts a good minute. Some slowly moving carbonation is seen rising. The smell is soap, orange, and lemon coming through in a spicy way. Hops are there but very subdued. No yeast is smelled. The taste takes the citrusy smells and adds a bit of a subdued wheat flavoring. No yeast is tasted. The mouthfeel is medium with nothing harsh on the tongue. It has a watery aftertaste and finish. This is very sessionable. Overall, a bit different for a real witbier ("whereís the yeast?), but I liked it for me. Iíd have it again.

ChainGangGuy (4505) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Part of the 2013 Spring Thaw Variety Pack - $12.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours out a hazy, darkish golden body with a smallish, receding, white head.

Smell: Bright, cheery orangey citrus note atop the wheat malt and redolent spice mix.

Taste: Malted wheat with a touch of breadiness and sugared sweetness. Spritzy citrus character as the carbonation crackles across the tongue, fast followed by the spices, the Grains of Paradise with its characteristic peppery bite. Very minor hop character, bitterness, letting the citrus additions and spices take on that role.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: Minus the GoP, itís not particularly distinguishable from a Blue Moon, and, after Summer and Coastal Wheat, Iím really not sure they needed another light, wheat-based, Grains of Paradise-dosed anything.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a golden straw color with a frothy white head that lasts a long time. Aromas of sweet lemon and tangerine with floral undertones. Taste is lightly sweet with flavors of tangerine and maybe banana. Has a medium-body with a creamy texture. Finish is very abrupt. Carbonation is lively. I was pleasantly surprised by this brew because I didnít think I would like it. In the end, I found it very refreshing. Would I consider it a finely-crafted ale? No. Would I happily consider it on a hot day? Absolutely.

Bread and citrus flavors meld with clove like aromas. Hazy yellow golden with a large white head. Balanced with dominating citrus flavors. Light refreshing crispness.

Yippee, a wit. Hazy, pale orange with a glow, actually kinda interesting looking. Orange peel nose. Boring palate is uninspiring but might be kind of decent if I had just mowed the lawn. But no I just fixed a toilet and it didnít work well with that.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. Nose is peaches, straw, bread. Palate is very stingy, tongue lashing, with a light felt finish. Lightly sweet with flavors of peaches, pepper, light spiciness and bread. Dry finish with just a touch of umami. Like it.
