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.

FlacoAlto (3810) - 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.

Brought this back from Utah. Ok beer, not my favorite. Not a strong aroma, yeasty to me. Spices in power the taste. A nice buy.

Bottle from douglas88. Seems a heck of a nice fella, but his taste in beer can be judged by his high rating for Romulan Ale. Pours gold with an ok white head. Nice aromas of citrus sorts of things with hot spice bits. Medium body with soft carbonation. Starts a bit peppery, but the citrus and spice and everything nice are there. Finishes clean and mildly spicey. It’s over a hundred today, and this is appreciated. Good.

jrob21 (2670) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 12, 2009
Bottle from Douglas88. This one is not bad and a little more full flavored than what I was expecting. Pour is a clear yellow with a decent white head that disappears pretty quickly but leaves some nice lacing. Full fruit flavor, orange, apple, is pretty nice. Spice, lemon peel, and a unique although slightly weird soapy aroma. Finish is slightly bitter and you are left with some lemony citrus fruit esthers for a while.

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2011
The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is pretty basic for a Belgian white. I get a lot of wheat and coriander, with some orange and lemon citrus notes mixed in. The flavor is also pretty straightforward. The wheat is complimented by the coriander and slightly bitter orange peel. Thin mouthfeel and medium, soft carbonation.
