Belgian-style wheat ale that was brewed with orange juice and then aged for a short time in our sour barrels, giving it a slight, refreshing tartness.

peteinSD (1462) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Tap at the Bruery. Clear light yellow pour with white foam. Aroma is dry wheat and light tart with some orange. Taste is a bit disorganized with clean, dry wheat up front with some grainy tartness and orange. Very light, almost watery, mouthfeel. Odd little beer but a nice variant on the style.

Pours hazy pale yellow with a thin white head. Nose is fresh rain, straw, lemon, light vinegar with some yeasty grainy elements. Taste is a good balance of sweet, tart and bitter. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, light body and a long finish.

Draft at Bruery Provisions. Pours a hazy gold with thin white head. Big citrusy nose, mild barn funk, lemon and spice. Taste is straight orange juice up front then lots of yeast - witbier yeast funk some horse blanket. Mildly tart.

I really liked this. Bright orange juice character in the aroma and the taste. Almost lemonade like but with a radler type twist. Very crisp and refreshing. Not uber beery but the orangest tasting witbier that I have had.

Very turbid golden orange with a white head. Strong orange aroma, almost like fresh orange juice and peels. Some mild grass, a light wood note, slight citric tartness, and some sweet wheat bread. Nice orange juice and peel flavor. Some sweet wheat bread, mild wood, and a hint of citric sourness. A mild grass note, some yeast, and a hint of coriander.
