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!

DrSilverworm (8696) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2013
12oz bottle, from Party Source. Enjoy by August 2013. Mildly hazy golden - orange color. Thin off white bubbly head, fades to minimal. Just little loose dots of lace. Doesnít look bad, but much darker than most white ales Iíve seen. Orange peel, some spice, light belgian-type yeast. Moderate strength more smooth carbonation, medium body. Lightly dry, light stickiness. Tangy sweetness. Decent witbier.

arminjewell (8673) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 15, 2013
Pour otu of 12 oz bottle, hazy orange pour with fizzy white head, aroma brought sweet grain, caramel, lots of orange peel, some slight vanilla, lots of honey, a salty note, hints of coriander in there. Taste is very salty, some slight coriander, hints of bread, going into lots of sweet orange and tangerine, hints of slight grass, yeast, finishing with a sweet but slightly dry finish.

DocLock (8593) - 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.

BVery (8064) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Bottle. Light golden orange pour that is slightly murky. Small white head. This is a little bland overall - the citrus and spice character is somewhat muted and muddled together.

j12601 (8000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazed gold with a medium to large dense white head. Big sweet citrus fruits, oranges and some lovely floral musk. Medium bodied, sweet tangerine coming through in a big way. Very clean and easy drinking, lots of lovely muskiness. Smooth musk into the finish with more tangerine. If this was presented to be me blind as a tangerine wit Iíd have loved it, so I canít knock it down because Sam Adams made it and I usually end up disappointed by their stuff. Well done.

bb (7644) - Alamo, California, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Bottle. Light golden-amber beer with a cream head. Spice and eyast aroma with light wheat. Wheat and spice flavor with yeast and light citrus. Medium bodied. Wheat and citrus linger with yeast and spice.

Ibrew2or3 (7511) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 26, 2013
12oz bottle pours with a fairly opaque gold body that supports a wafer thin bright white head. The mild aroma has sugar sweetness, pear candy, sugar sweetened spices and then a light sweet citrusy lime candy note. The taste unloads mounds of sugary sweetness that is a mix of table sugar, sweet pear juice, sugary green apple and lime hard candy. Beneath the sweetness are mild spices like clove and sugary coriander as well as thereís more sweet pear and apple notes. Way too sweet and sugary. I will not try this again.

"Not bad. I think the grains of paradise make this juuuuust a bit better than average. otherwise, why another wit? nothing to get excited about, but reasonably crisp, clean and refreshing..."

b3shine (6755) - Indiana, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle to half-pint. Looks solid; a hazy apricot with foamy eggshell head. Smells yeasty and spicy. Tastes like it smells with some pine. Fuller-bodied. Not bad, but a bit unbalanced.
