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!

reebtogi (4080) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 26, 2014
355ml bottle pours a slightly hazy golden color with a finger of white head that settles to reveal only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is orange zest with some hints of grains and yeast. Taste is a light spicy and citrus hop bitterness with a mild malty sweetness finishing with some dry and yeasty notes. A decent brew, but nothing memorable.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Rated on 11-04-2013 (Bottle) This beer pours a large white head that mostly diminished, hazy pale yellow body, fast rising carbonation, and a good amount of lacing. The Aroma is wheat malt, orange, semi-sweet, spicy, and coriander. The Taste is sweet, orange, wheat malt, tangy, and lightly spicy. The Palate is smooth and this is a light bodied beer. Overall, this is a refreshing beer and can be considered a session beer. A beer I would consider drinking again.

Aurelius (4044) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Bad label, foggy pear gold brew, thin bubbly head. Danish pastry aroma, yeasty, orange, lightly sweet; has a doggy tone at times. Wow, I really like this. There’s a definite black pepper tone to the beer, and it leans towards being savory. Like pepper on a jammy biscuit; tangy, lightly sweet, honey tones. Biscuity on the lips. Lightish body, crisp. Publix, I-10.

cheap (3966) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2013
From a bottle smells a little soapy. Taste is spiced white beer, but not over the top. Not bad I guess. Yes, a little more spicey than yer typical white beer. Finish has a tad of that mild ale bitteness on the back of the throat.

Sam Adams has been doing some stuff I like recently. Unfortunately this did not live up to what I’ve been seeing from them recently. This pours hazy orange with an off-white head. The aroma has orange, powder, ginger, smoothness from wheat and cream. It has a medium body with a mushy feel to it and a decent amount of carbonation. The flavor starts with a powdery mix of spice and nothing standing out - it all seems quite muddled. There is also mushy malt and an odd cream quality. The finish adds a cough syrup aspect that leads to a fakeness taste. There’s lots of interesting ingredients here and it is a style I like a lot, but this one doesn’t do it for me.

ben4321 (3784) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from Sparrow-Downtown, 3/1/13

Aroma: The aroma is citrus/orange zest, some wheat, and plenty of coriander/spice
Appearance: It pours a hazy gold-orange color with a small off-white head and light lace
Flavor: Tastes much the same, lots of orange and other citrus with plenty of spice and some wheat
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has average-plus carbonation, and a lasting, tingly finish
Overall Impression: This is a pretty solid one. It is nothing special, but it feels fairly on style, and is sessionable and enjoyable enough. It probably goes without saying, but I’d be significantly happier to see this one on a menu then a Blue Moon.

Bottle from Ashley. Pours a light golden yellow color with a gentle foamy head. Aroma is nice. Big citrus aroma with pepper and slight funk. Flavor is also big citrus with some tang on the finish. Good.
