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!

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.

PorterPounder (7116) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - 12 oz bottle - part of their íSpring Thaw" variety pak, Murky light orange pour, soft white, beady head, dissipates quickly. Lemony aroma with some saffron-like spiciness. Flavor has some lemony accents, some yeasty notes, a hint of banana. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Decent enough.

TheAlum (6860) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2013
12 oz bottle from Jewel Osco (Lisle, IL). This ended up in one slot of my Noble Pils sixer. Iím a little upset about it. So I guess Iíll rate it. Pours a dulled hazy golden orange hue, firmer haze in the body, brighter golden edges with a small frothy offwhite head. Stays as a decent layer, laces small. Lively carbonation, a bit darker in the body almost amber. Aromas are firmer strong coriander, flaked wheat, bit of suntan lotion. Mellow orange rind and fruit grows, dough, some estery fruit. Bigger coriander presence than I generally like, a little sweet. Initial is lighter end of the fold, a bit of jump in the middle. Some fuzzy dry carbonation hits the palate into the middle. Front end is a bit soapy, floral, gentle citrusy orange and fruit. Middle is a bit bland, doughy, and fruity. Some gentle dryness at times, mellow carbonation. Backend shows some sweeter bread, wheat, and dough. A bit grainy, with gentle florals and soap. Backend is a bit bland, orange oils are subtle with lingering earth, gentle yeastiness, and lingering coriander coolness. A bit odd. The nose felt like a coriander bomb but the beer itself was a bit more enjoyable, a bit dry, if a bit flabby at times. Ok. Not really my choice for a Wit though.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Dirty straw in color, slight sediment, thin sudsy white head, little lacing.   Bright spicy nose, corriander, grains of paradise, and a candied citrus peel.   Remains spicy on the tongue, strong, but not sharp.   Also a mealy wheatiness.   Spices die off rather quickly, leaving only the mealy wheatiness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Strong nose, strong start, falls off rather quickly.   Wished this one were brighter.   Tiz pretty much middle of the road.

Strykzone (6560) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2013
12 ounce bottle from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. The pour was hazed golden. A white head sat on top and left a little lacing. The aroma was oranges and wheat. Flavors were those oranges with coriander, wheat, pale malts. The grains of paradise were kind of different here. They are described as a pepper replacement but that might be a stretch. Still, this was quite flavorful and a nice beer. The wheat gives crispness, mouthfeel, and complexity.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6537) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2013
After a number of pretty mediocre attempts as doing a Belgian Wit Boston Beer Company finally managed to pull it off. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy apricot color with a medium sized foamy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweetish orange, honey and bread. The flavor was musty yet fairly sweet with notes of coriander, orange, bread, biscuit and honey. Long musty orange and coriander finish. Moderately full bodied. Well done.
