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!

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.

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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5095) - 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.

EithCubes (5089) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Fresh bottle by JUN 2013. Nose of lemon cleaner with something short of coriander soup, sweet and tangy. Pours hazy yellow with a smooth white head. Taste is sweet, some powdery lemon cleanser, stripping bready-yeasty character to finish. Malt is not very diverse but itís not expected to be, does its job of support and gets out of the way, of course no hops or bitterness here. Always makes me happy to see Sammyís commitment to grains of paradise, though theyíre not very evident here. Smooth, slightly slick medium-full body.

Strykzone (5072) - 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.

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - NOV 4, 2013
This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a medium sized head of foamy very off-white colored bubbles that were and left behind a very softly carbonated semi-hazy dark yellow orange colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was citrus and coriander. The bubbly mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering sweet aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of chamomile citrus fruity and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Cloudy dark amber. Fizzy shrinking white head. Sharp spice scent. Weird flavour; vanilla, soap, yeast and mild pepper.

The new beer of the spring pack I was most impressed with seems to be the exception. A nice light flavor that isnít too wheaty at all. Far superior to a Blue Moon, itís quite smooth. Would definitely drink another.

12oz bottle from spring mix pack. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is candied lemon, sweet citrus, coriander, and mild spice. Flavor follows nicely with big a big sweet lemon in the finish. Medium in body and lingering sweet citrus in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
