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 (5742) - 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 olí beer." Clean and unoffending. (#5188, 8/3/2013)

TheAlum (5701) - 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.

Pours a hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma is full of wheat and coriander. The flavor has a lot of coriander and grains of paradise as well as some orange peel and wheat. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

PorterPounder (5540) - 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.

b3shine (5425) - 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.

Sampled on 4/20/13. This Belgian Witbier pours a somewhat cloudy medium orange color from a 12oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head with good retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity, wheaty and sweet, with tangerine, orange and coriander. A medium bodied Witbier. The malts are wheaty, fruity and sweet. The hops are earthy and spicy. Fairly lively carbonation. Nice balance of flavors, spicy, fruity and sweet. Itís a little sweet overall, but the spices somewhat counter act the sweetness, especially the pepper at the finish. It would make a nice summer session ale on a hot summer afternoon. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

TheBeerGod (5249) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy gold with a medium, dense white head. Aroma is spicy with lots of citrus zest, orange and grains. Taste is mostly sweet with soft lemon candy, candied orange, wheat notes yeast and light spices. Body is medium with a dense, prickly carbonation. Ends with more spices, sweet malt notes, grains, yeast and candied citrus fruit. Not bad.

Suttree (5141) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 7, 2013
From the "Spring Thaw" mix pack. Cloudy orange, decent white head. Pretty typical for the style, I guess. Some yeasty notes, some wheaty notes, some spicy notes. Perhaps a tad overbearing.

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - FEB 22, 2013
From the Spring 2013 sampler pack. The body is a hazy deep amber orange with a bright white head. The nose has some nice bright oranges. There is is also a hint of clove and raw dough. The body is highly carbonated with a chewy feeling. This tastes like raw dough with an orange hint at the finish. There is also a hint of clove spice and tobacco in the finish. The aftertaste is just orange peel and gross abc gum.
