True Belgian style white beer (or wit). Using coriander with local tangelo and white grapefruit peels gives this cloudy wheat beer a citrus punch.

on tap-pours a retaining thin white head and cloudy straw color. Aroma is wheat, citrus zest, spice. Taste is sweet wheat/light malt, citrus zest, some coriander. Nice effervescence.

draft at Shipyard Emporium. Tried a few days before they opened, still somewhat young. Very floral citrusy nose, orange blossoms, with a spiciness. Pours a hazy whitish yellow with a solid white head. Citrus flavors upfront with wheat bread following with some coriander and earthy spices following. Very refreshing and easy to drink!

Draft at Shipyard Emporium. The pour yields an extremely cloudy, creamy looking, pale yellow-golden body. A small head of smooth, eggshell tinted foam fades slowly to a thin film, giving scant spots and small arches of lacing to the glass. The nose is quite nice, showing a base of light, clean, slightly creamy wheat grain malt, with a prominent splash of tart orange peel lending considerable acidity for a wit. Thereís a slight pithiness to the zest, which helps to keep things dry like they should be, and it comes across as bright and enticing as any example of the style that Iíve ever tried. Flavors follow suit, again very clean and tart, based in light flaked wheat and spiced with restrained coriander and bright, sharp orange peel. A whisper of floral hopping backs up the coriander bitterness. Traditionalists will find this to be a little on the tart side, but thatís exactly what I like about it. The palate is appropriately light, as the style demands, yet it sports a distinct creaminess from all the unfiltered grain. Carbonation is fine and sharp. Very nice brew overall. Refreshing for the Florida weather. Good stuff.
