22oz bottle. Thin white head, bubbles on the side of the glass. Mildly hazy golden yellow color. Head fades to minimal, but leaves decent bits of lace. Nice, lighter crisp carbonation, drier finish. very nice balance of Pale Ale and Belgian flavors. Satisfying amount of hops -- with spicy and orange peel flavors. Nice zesty balanced taste. Quite easy to drink, and refreshing. Good orange aroma, very tasty. Coriander, wheat flavors. Nice to enjoy with a Potbelly italian sub dutch23mp (320) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2012
just as advertised a very refreshing belgian style white that is so nice and easy on the taste buds. Pour like looks like and taste perhaps better then the import. a bit of a citrus hint very light and great for sitting on the porch or deck on a summer day. Very enjoyable and thus the good rating. 22 oz bomber. Ughsmash (7502) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Bomber. Poured hazy medium golden with a well-retained white head. The aroma picked up pineapple, white pepper, floral notes, and earthy wheat over mixed, lighter-skinned fruits and lesser bready notes. The flavor found pineapple, tart wheat, and floral notes throughout.. bready base.. somewhat muddled flavors from the hops and yeast.. finished bitter and grainy, with some earthy yeast too. Medium-bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. the yeast and hops didn’t always work well together in here. HoppyAlesToYou (186) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - JUN 19, 2012
I poured this from a bomber into an imperial pint glass, foregoing my New Holland High Gravity Series tulip since it only holds eleven ounces and I was not sharing. It settles well, with a typical white ale cloudiness and pillow like white head. The aroma is mostly spice, coriander in particular, with resinous hop undertones. It is difficult to detect much else behind the strong spiciness, which also overwhelms the taste. The mouth feel is creamy and soft, presumably from the oats. While I do not plan to revisit this year’s edition, I may try it again next year in case the spice is dialed back. Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Bottle: The aroma is rather light and consists of citrus, coriander, Belgian yeast, and mild grapefruit. It pours a hazy dull gold with a one finger white head that quickly fades to a thin soapy film. The flavor starts with citrus and coriander. The finish has light-moderate pine, grapefruit, and a touch of peeper. It’s light bodied with somewhat lively carbonation. Overall, it’s more "White" in the nose. The flavor is more like I light/mild IPA with some coriander and light pepper.

Meh...a decent summer beer. Very crisp and refreshing but not very flavorful. Aroma was weak. A distinct graininess to it with light malt and cucumber present. Pour was a nice cloudy light gold with a one finger white head. Taste was slightly bland. Coriander and stale hops with a slight citrus twang in the aftertaste. There’s hints of Belgian yeast as it warms. Nice strong biting carbonation and very light crisp finish. HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUN 14, 2012
22 oz. An odd serious from New Holland here but the price is right. Pale yellow pour with thin white head. It looks like I’d expect it to. Aroma of wit spice, strong pine and green hops. It certainly has a Belgian twang to it. Flavor has a nice wit spice component combined with a strong hop note, focusing on pine and resin. While I’m drinking this I picture I’m on the sea eating lots of seafood. Or maybe I’m just hungry. Lots of notes of coriander and pepper. Mild saltiness. Light bodied, finishes on a light bitter note. It’s fine. Series are always interesting, if only for the story they tell. This one. It’s ok. mmmkay (51) - - JUN 7, 2012
Nice citrus aroma. Light orange color and white head. Low alcohol makes it very easy to drink. Good beer but nothing really special.

Whole Foods, P st, DC 22oz ($5): Pours a light orange with a tiny head. Aroma are American style hops, so kind of grapefruity, coupled with coriander. Taste has even more coriander in it. The hops mellow out in the taste, but they are still sort of the main thing going on in this beer. Body is very light, much lighter than most IPAs, which is, I suppose, a contribution from the white ale part. In any case, this is an interesting ale.

Bomber from Capone’s. Pours hazy medium gold with white well-laced head. Nose is spicy coriander, hops, limey citrus, and the taste is well balanced with pale malt, spicy coriander and white pepper, limey citrus, and a complex finish.
