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!

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Cloudy, unfiltered looking pale yellow with a frothy light head like the way I prefer my Wits. The aroma does have a dough-like, lemon/orange citrus note, and pale malts upfront but there is also something kind of musty about it. The body is light to medium. The taste is better than the aroma suggests it would be. A good spicy and citrus flavor with a mildly lingering finish.

Leighton (11860) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2013
Bottle at home in Salisbury. Pours mostly clear gold with a fine, white foam head. Lots of orange, dough and wheat and coriander in the aroma. Medium sweet flavor with slightly sugary bready malts, spices, orange peel, coriander. Light to medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Sweet finish with just the faintest licks of bitterness, lots more bread, lightly toasted sugars, wheat, spices and citrus. Straight-ahead stuff. Not much nuance but easy to drink.

ROGUE (2127) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 2, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy bright straw color with a one finger frothy white head with good retention. Aromas of bright citrus notes, soft esters and a light wheat malt. Taste starts off wheaty and fruity with orange peel and citrus, then goes into the spices which last into the finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Strong lemon flavor with yeast and malt, banana, spice (light), then a very long and lingering finish. A bit unnatural. Not my favorite example of the style.

Luvystypotables (790) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2013
A honey coloured beer, not much of an aroma, but a very pleasant taste, a hint of orange and tangerine. The coriander is a vague memory on the palate. The palate is mild and transient.

Palate is a medium body, crisp, refreshing and nicely balanced with mild carbonation. The finish is wheat, hay, biscuit malt and some sweet lemon notes and light bitterness. I good refreshing solid brew.

Orangey hazy pour some head. Smells strongly of coriander and citrus... real juicy. Tastes the same with more pepperiness. Palate is a little see-through watery, but otherwise it’s tasty enough.
