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!

Braudog (5584) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Bottle. This has the look of any number of American takes on witbier, slightly hazy and orange-gold. Not much of an aroma here. But the beer drinks with a decently respectable body, just a hint of spice and gristiness, but generally drinks like a "regular ol’ beer." Clean and unoffending. (#5188, 8/3/2013)

seymour (1401) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Tasted from pitchers into sampler glasses at the St. Louis Brews meeting. It poured a slightly hazy orange amber colour with no foam or lace. Perhaps the carbonation was lost in all the pouring and transporting. True-to-style Belgian Wit: grainy, soft, slightly bready, citrusy, some clove and black pepper phenols, definitely some orange peel, hint of anise/black licorice, a bit too much residual sweetness. Better than Blue Moon or Shock Top, not as good as Paulaner or other classic examples.

weihenweizen (1624) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle, best by January 2014, poured into a glass. Pours hazy golden with small white head. Aroma is grains of paradise, light body, low carbonation, and medium small bubble lacing. Taste is coriander, grains of paradise, crisp wheat, and a hint of citrus.

bhensonb (10777) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours hazy gold with a creamy white head. Make that dirty hazy. Aroma is primarily citrus. Med body, or nearly. Flavor is wheat with zest and very light pepper/spice. Much tastier than many a wheat beer.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 26, 2013
12oz served in an Allagash cervoise A - Pours golden brass with a slight haze with a stark white whipped head. Good retention and lacing. S - Spiced aroma, cloves, coriander, pepper, sweet citrus, candy sweet malt, wheat husks. T - Chalky wheat, soft orange, white pepper, light honey sweetness, not as sweet as the nose. The clove and coriander are more subdued as well. A tad watery but has a refreshing lemon note on the finish. M - Full lush feel, carbonation makes for a light smooth body. Tasty wit here. It’s not groundbreaking but is smooth and goes down very easy and is pretty good all around. It is a tad watery but still good. Serving type: bottle 02-18-2013

Lemon and other citrus fruit aroma - very delicate wheat aroma. Flavor is a light wheat/pale malt with a big orange peel and coriander spice notes. Spices are almost too powerful and dominate the beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kinz (3256) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Dark gold, some haze, quite surprisingly very little head. Aroma is spritzy coriander and spice with a pleasant hit of orange citrus. Flavor starts off grainy, then hints at citrus, before moving into a moderate leaning towards heavy coriander and peppery finish. Rather full bodied actually. Missed the note on refreshing, but not bad.

Poured into a shaker. Hazy orange color with a cream colored head. Aroma is wheat and light yeasty notes. Flavor is wheat and tangerine. The tangerine adds a nice fruity note without being overwhelming or artificial. Light bodied with crisp carbonation. Overall a pretty good witbier.
