Orchard White is our Belgian-style witbier. We brew it with unmalted flaked wheat, oats, malted barley, corriander, orange peel, and lavender. This is a thirst-quenching beer that will be a year-round offering.

I really loved this white beer. floral and peaches in the nose, nicely balanced yeasts and a subtle hoppiness with the firmness of an unfiltered wheat/white.

75cl bottle. It pours a yellow hazy colour with a really huge white soapy foam. Aroma is mostly spicey with loads of lavender and coriander. Flavor is smooth and refreshing, with a big presence of orange peel, lavender and coriander. Smooth and quite overcarbonated. Nothing that a hard pour can’t solve. Overall, a nice beer but not a repeat buy for me.

750 ml bottle to pint. Looks solid; light and lively. A transparent light gold with LOTS of foamy white head. Smells semi-sweet and doughy with hints of orange. Tastes like it smells with notes of coriander and lavender. Good on the palate with a nice, dry finish. Pleasant.

Hazy pale gold beer, big white head. Light crispy palate, semi dry. Aromatic beer, seamlessly blended mild citrus, minty spice and floral sweetness. Finishes dry . Nice beer but perhaps better drunk on a summers day rather than a freezing cold night!

5 Oct 2012, bottle. faintly murky yellow, no bubbles. nose reminds me of a nice saki, slightly watery, faint vinegar. thin body and almost flat. tastes like flat, cold saki. not much here. this is an old bottling. it was green glass and it was a very low fill (top 1/4 of the bottle was empty).

Poured from a 750 ml into a cervoise goblet. A: Pours a clear dark straw with a very fluffy two finger. Nice lace down the glass. S: Bubblegum yeast with some peppery spiciness. Sweet flowery notes and a faint hint of light citrus peel. T: A little watered down, but there is some nice flower and some grassy vine. The yeasty notes from the nose are present as well, but there wasn’t any of that peppery spice I got from the nose. M: A little thin and watered down, but still employed some flowery notes. O: The mouthfeel hurt this beer. I felt like the yeast wasn’t as present in the taste. Overall still a decent beer though. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-18-2011

The poor results it lots of foamy head. A light beer that would be delicious on a hot summer day. I taste a lot of lemon, which seems to overpower the rest of the beer in my opinion, but still tasty. I’m glad I tried the beer, but the Bruery is expensive by the time it makes it to Indiana, so I’m not sure I’d buy it again.

Been saving bottle, perhaps to share with family on this staggeringly beautiful night. Pours sunshine copper with a foamy, explosive head two-to-three fingers in length. Tastes and smells of citrus zest, retired Belgian yeast, instant porridge, sour grass, white pepper with hints of fried potatoes, cinnamon and honey. I would’ve liked more hop bitterness, and perhaps a more reliable yeast character, but this was fine.

Simply. Amazing. Perfect color. Big, fluffy head. Aroma is banana and cinnamon. Sweet citrus and clove flavor. Wonderful, light body. Awesome.
