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!

Lowe1983 (1342) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy, amber color with a white head. Aroma is fairly light with wheat, caramel malts, and a hint of lemon. Flavor is the same with plenty of the wheat flavor. A little more lemon comes out on the flavor than what was in the aroma.

The color is an opaque golden with a large pillowy white head that fades quickly, and the aroma blends yeast, orange peel, and wheat. The taste is slightly sweet and a touch sour, and the palate has a medium body, slick yet thick texture, soft carbonation, slightly wheat-filled finish.

HeistAlmighty (1040) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAR 12, 2014
355ml bottle. Banana yellow, nice head, some lacing, hazy. Not much aroma, some coriander. Coriander in the taste is offset by some orange and citrus peel. Overall, manages to be pretty balanced, but Iím not personally a fan of this kind of spiciness.

crazyvin (1857) - New York, USA - FEB 27, 2014
From a bottle. A slightly hazy body with a white head that had nice retention and lace. Some spice notes on the aroma, subtle fruit and a bread quality. Flavor was mellow. Mild pepper and orange peel upfront. Wheat notes were slightly sweet and there was an almost tart finish to it. Smooth and easy to drink. Okay overall.

IndianaRed (2184) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Bottle, Faint bland aroma and flavors. A bit of the citrus and Belgian notes, but drap and with a chalky feel. Papery at the end too. Disappointing.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark gold body with a small fizzy white head. The nose is a little too heavy on the coriander for my tastes, it smells a bit soapy. A hefty citrus peel aroma as well with a little yeastiness and wheat. The flavor is pretty similar to what I thought was coming based on the nose, an overly spiced and rather typical American interpretation of a Wit. Not a whole lot of flavors coming from the yeast, not much makes it past all the citrus peel and coriander. Finishes with a bit of soapy coriander and orange zest. Fairly soft on the mouthfeel with gentle carbonation. Pretty poor Wit, but Iím sure those with limited exposure to them might like it just fine.

bkurtz (724) - PERU - JAN 20, 2014
Pours a cloudy yellow with a fairly big head for a wit bier. Aromas of citrus and spice, coriander. Refreshing citrus sweetness with a smooth finish. Solid, well-made beer.

Not very exciting but itís a good wheat ale without much anything wrong with it. It could be smoother, earthier, but thatís about it. The real setback is the fact that this tastes like most other Americanized Belgian Whites. That said, Iím pretty sure I wouldnít be able to turn this down if I was offered one.
