COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer style is over 400 years old, and continues to enjoy overwhelming popularity. Offering low hop bitterness, it is easy to enjoy. It pours very hazy, with a light gold color... we say it’s like summertime in a glass. Bitter orange peel and fresh coriander add zest and depth to this light, refreshing beer.

brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 6, 2011
A: The pour is a hazy light yellow/straw color with just a small white head. S: Starts off with a very bright citrus and citrus peel aroma. There is a lot of wheat and some light spices, which is pretty much how I like my witbiers. It’s very fruity, which is sort of surprising. And of course, there’s a bit of yeast. T: The flavor is also very fruity, which you don’t normally expect for a witbier, but I think it’s great. Heavy on the citrus with only mild spices. Lots of wheat bread and sweet malts with a touch of yeast. M: Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. O: This was very light and refreshing and had very nice aromas and flavors. One of the best witbiers I’ve had.

Bottle from Harris Teeter, Hampstead, North Carolina. Yellow-gold with a carbonation and next to no head. Its Belgian styling is best in its nose, with a slightly more lager feel in taste. Its spiciness is evident but light.
