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.

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. Iím glad I tried the beer, but the Bruery is expensive by the time it makes it to Indiana, so Iím not sure Iíd buy it again.

Bottle on clearance in Florida. Zero aroma. Tons of head. Overly floral. Didnít see lavender on label unfortunately as teams not not to like. Considering lavender, not too bad

750 ml bottle courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Pours a slightly cloudy gold with a voluminous white head that hangs around a bit. Lavender blue, dilly, dilly. Hints of lavender in the aroma and flavor. Also scents/flavors of orange peel, lemon zest, coriander spice and Belgian yeast. Sweet with a hint of tartness. Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Interesting beer, glad I got to try it.

Bottle: Muddy yellow body, almost opaque; huge, chunky, cloud-like head builds up & lasts forever... Fat, bright white lacing left all along the glass. Aroma is very floral; notes of zesty lavender, phenolic spice, coriander, baked bread, soft wheat, & some spicy, generic Belgian-style yeast. Slight twinge of musky, cotton-like funk to it. Taste explodes with fresh baked bread, wheat, & Belgian yeast. Mild flavors of lightly tart granny smith apples, citrus peel & lemon zest add a nice amount of sweetness. Grain, cotton funk, bready yeast, florals, & lavender lead into a dry, spiced finish... Hard to decide between clove or coriander... Maybe both? Highly carbonated, effervescent mouth feel. Iíve heard bad things about this beer so my expectations were low, but it wasnít bad at all. A nice, enjoyable witbier, would be good on a hot day.

hotstuff (4874) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 11, 2014
Rated on 5-08-2011 (Bottle) This beer pours a medium sized very fizzy white head that mostly diminishes, transparent golden body, fast rising carbonation, and virtually no lacing. The aroma is wheat, fruity, coriander, citrus, sweet, and orange peel. The taste is sweet, citrus, fruity, wheat, and some malt. The mouthfeel is lively and this beer is light-medium bodied. This beer is easy to drink, worth trying and somewhat refreshing.

A beer that never shouldíve been retired, one of the most solid parts of the Bruery stable, the lavender really catapulted this to an excellent and unique witbier. I greatly preferred this to Saison Rue and the such.

Bottle. Pours out a clear yellow beer with a big soapy white head. Aroma of citrus, lavender and a slight yeasty funkiness. Flavor has dry sweetness with a short, light bitter dry finish. Lavender definitely shines trough in the flavor, very nice and interesting take on the style.
