COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
No bones about it: our Belgian Style White Ale is thoroughly unique. The zest of orange rides side-saddle with coriander to create a beer that’s perfect for riding the open-range – or lounging in the backyard.

Ultra pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of mildly skunked grains, coriander, orange peel and yeast. Taste of grains, coriander, citrus and yeast. Carbonated with a weird oily mouth feel and a peppery finish. Misses the mark.

FlacoAlto (3881) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 7, 2009
A vigorous pour into my 25cl tulip glass summons forth both a lemon-like / coriander scent and a frothy initially three-finger thick, pale, off-white colored head. The beer is a fairly clear gold color that shows a brilliantly though not quite clear, straw-gold color when held up to the light. The aroma is all spices with notes of lemon, a touch of earthy coriander and a finish that has a touch of malt character with a cracker-like grain note.

Somewhat sweet tasting (for a Wit), with a medium’ish body that has enough heft to just cling to the palate after each sip, but is still pretty quaffable.. Spicy with notes of white pepper, citrus zest, and a slightly phenolic finish that reminds me a bit of ginger, but there is also a bite of coriander. While this beer is very spice dominated, some of the fermentation character comes through and contributes to the overall spiciness. There is a touch of woody character that couples with the earthy black pepper and coriander spice notes. As the beer warms a bit more the citrus character becomes more characteristic of orange zest.

Not a bad example of a Wit, it leans towards the citrus side of the spice spectrum, which I definitely enjoy. I prefer my Wits to be a little drier and a little more tart, but this is well within the style parameters.

Bright yellow but a little cloudy. Tons of bubbles. :he taste is like a good white wine but I’m drinking beer. Starts quite sweet but the sweetness is subdued by the malt. Finish is dry and floury.

Bottle From AJ’s Fine Foods Scottsdale. Pours yellow and pretty clear. Nice coriander with a little orange on the nose. Fairly fruity on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid example of the style.

hayduke (3775) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 6, 2009
From a 12 oz bottle this poured a cloudy yellow with a medium white head and lots of lacing as it settled. Nose of citrus and coriander spice. Mouthfeel medium with good carbonation. Flavor is what you would expect with style, with lemons and oranges, again that coriander. Finish is refreshing and spicy. A nice beer and good for a warm day.

patrick767 (3728) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 2, 2014
bottle - This brew has a tart, citrusy, yeasty aroma. It tastes sweet and spicy, maybe a little too sweet, and has a light to medium body and a lively palate. Overall it’s a good wit.

This is a better than average wit. Lots of spice and citrus with a sweet wheat character.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma of light tropical fruits and wheat. Flavor of yeast, melon, slight clove, and sweetness. Nice and drinkable. A pleasant witbier. 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

jrallen34 (3497) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2011
bottle... ugly dirty gold, off white head, leaves only a ring but has some lace... lightly sweet, graham cracker, cereal, ok but super boring... taste is bland but its better than the nose, sweet overall in a generic way, really grainy, a bit of honey... it unoffensive enough, just so many better options its not worth it

Aubrey (3490) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 26, 2009
Pale gold with a slight haze. Crisp up front, somewhat chewy toward the finish. Spicy and herbal, with elements of coriander, clove and white pepper. Sweet malt base, with hints of white cake and honey. Mild yet fitting bitterness level. Refreshing and tasty beer.
