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!

Fresh bottle by JUN 2013. Nose of lemon cleaner with something short of coriander soup, sweet and tangy. Pours hazy yellow with a smooth white head. Taste is sweet, some powdery lemon cleanser, stripping bready-yeasty character to finish. Malt is not very diverse but it’s not expected to be, does its job of support and gets out of the way, of course no hops or bitterness here. Always makes me happy to see Sammy’s commitment to grains of paradise, though they’re not very evident here. Smooth, slightly slick medium-full body.

Pours a cloudy gold with a fleeting white head. The aroma is subtle with hints of wheat, citrus, and corriander. Wheat, ripe oranges, orange peel, lemon zest, and corriander flavors. Light body with medium carbonation. The beer has a tangy juice like mouthfeel and a sweet citrus finish.

demitriustown (1117) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - FEB 2, 2013
12oz bottle: Aroma is tangerine, coriander, yeast, lightly flowery, and an overall nice scent to it. Appearance is a cloudy orange with a medium white head that diminishes into a soapy film. Taste is coriander, fruity, nice spice notes but not overpowering, and a nicely wheat texture. Palate is medium to high carbonation in the mouth with a lingering wheat note in the aftertaste. Overall, Decent stuff, enjoyable to drink and taste good. Cheers!

thegreenrooster (3455) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Pour is a hazy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is typical wit beer. Corriander with some wheat malt. Flavor is some wheat malt with a bit of spice. Very thick mouthfeel for a wit. Finish is clean but flavorless. Needs more of the spice mention in the description. It’s ok but not a great example of the style.

fidemaster (286) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Has a nice aroma almost like being in a spice mart. The color is a bit weak. This is a nice pleasant to drink beer. Lightly sweet, tangerine, with a hint of spice. It has a nice clean finish.
