COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(KLOR-ohs) Light bodied and refreshing, our take on a Belgian white ale is delicately spiced with orange and lemon peels as well as Indian green coriander for a herbal, lemony character with some notes of summer stone fruit and citrus.

Draft in Solemn Oath tulip at Standard Market, just $4. Cloudy yellow color with a thin ring of Belgian foam. Smell has a little of that umami I finally figured was the main component of Matilda, plus a bit of hops. First taste was a little sweet with a note of tartness. Some lemon and lemongrass, and a bit of dry wheat spice. I had bought a small chunk of cheese to munch with this beer, and the server took it, sliced it up and served it to me on a plate with savory toast points! Nice way to feel all continental with a continental beer!

Had on tap at Wild Monk in Lagrange. Served in a shaker pint. A: Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a creamy white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin cap and ring that leaves nice sheets of lace down the glass. S: Coriander and belgian yeast notes up front. Fruity esters and some sweet citrus notes are present as well and some raw wheat rounds it out. T: More fruity esters from the yeast are up front with a mild citrus peel, some cracked wheat and pale malt sweetness sits in the periphery. M: Light bodied with nice carbonation. The finish is smooth and sweet and the drinkability is great. O: Highly drinkable and delicious. The flavors wont beat you over the head, but they’re there in appropriate amounts. I really enjoyed this beer and will definitely revisit in the future. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 08-01-2012

4oz sample at brewery 8/10/12-Pours a hazy yellowish golden with a small white head. Aroma of coriander, spices, and citrus. Taste of the same with more coriander. This light bodied brew is a great tasting wit.

burg326 (3704) - Florida, USA - AUG 2, 2012
On draft at brewery, poured a pale yellow color, aromas of light vanilla, wheat, light spice, and some light citrus. Flaovrs are the same, real nice beer overall.

HonkeyBra (3384) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Sampled several times at the brewpub and just now getting around to rating it. It’s nice having this place just down the street from my work. Pours a pale yellow with a thick white head. Aroma of wit spice, vanilla, and belgian yeast. Flavor is dry, showcasing the yeast and belgian spice. Mild lemon, some coriander, strong pepper and fruit. Light bodied, strong carbonation. This is certainly refreshing. This is smooth and nice to drink on a super hot day.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Draft at World of Beer in Naperville. Pours a pleasing pale yellow, deeply cloudy with a frothy white head. Nose is soft and gental. Lots of citrus, bready wheat, mild tart notes and some herbal notes. The yeast support the schema, adding some white pepper and fruity notes. On tasting, a touch watery, but otherwise a quite clean beer. Plenty of citrus and a nice bready quality, doughy. Pretty nice witbier overall, really.

3fourths (8042) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 2, 2012
draft at the Publican, Chicago. splendid nose of minerals and must and layers of pungent and chalky yeast. dry body, starchy and dusty flavors of wheat, dried banana, lemon rind and herbs, turning to distinct bar soap late, growing especially unpleasant in the finish. add to that the unnecessarily high hop rate and what began as a wondrously aromatic yeast and hop experience turns chalky, soapy and bitter.

deyholla (6646) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the Mundelin beer fest. Pours a milky pale gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a nice banana note with a hint of clove and light grain backing. Flavor is much more earthy with wheat and banana with a hint of clove underlying.

holdenn (2080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Sampled at the brewery. Strong nose of yeast and Belgian white ale spices. Some coriander wheat notes. Body is a little thin. Refreshing wit but a bit heavy on that coriander. Light sweetness with a dose of coriander that they describe as green. I'd agree with that. A little more body less spice and still crisp and this would still be really tasty. 7/3/7/3/14 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasted this at the brewery not too long ago. Nothing particularly memorable, but it wasn’t bad. Drinkable with enough flavor, but nothing overpowering.
