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!

Leighton (11900) - 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.

brokensail (11613) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Hazy golden pour with a big white head. Sweet bread, wheat, and a light coriander note. Mild lemon zest tartness, yeast, white pepper, and a weird sugar note. Very sweet flavor of bread, sugar, and wheat. Coriander, white pepper, and lots of citric tartness. A bit of orange, zesty finish, and overly sweet.

bhensonb (11534) - 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.

Tmoney99 (11103) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Bottle. Poured hazy yellow color with an average frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate yeast wheat and citrus aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium citrus sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

Bov (9815) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 12, 2013
from Mondial de la Bière 2013, Mulhouse - cloudy dark orange beer with no foam left; solid aroma of coriander and orange peels; sweet and medium-bodied, a bit oily palate; quite dry and with a tart spicyness; long aftertaste of coriander, tangerines and vanilla

Drake (9012) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Rating this knowing it very well might be an alias of the White Ale. 12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with a large creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of toasted wheat, dry citrus, caramel and a spicy finish. The taste is big spice and citrus, pale wheat, a tropical note. Medium bodied.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle from spring variety pack. Pours hazy dark straw with off-white head that laces well. Nose is coriandery spice, lemongrassy hops, lime. Tastes rich, complex, with a pale malt and spicy flavor upfront and the lemon/lime kickiing in a fraction of a second later. Smooth and crisp, the only negative is that this one, like many other BBC beers, has that slight preservative twinge at the culmination that muddles things up a bit.

Bottle. Lemon/orange, coriander and wheat malt aroma. Hazy golden yellow with large white head. Slightly sweet lemon peel, coriander, and wheat malt flavor. Low carbonation. Okay.
