COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian style white ales have a long history of unique ingredients, as brewers experimented with spices discovered during the spice trade. For our hazy brew we found a refreshing combination of crisp wheat, the tangy sweetness of tangerine & orange peel, and the subtle spiciness of coriander & grains of paradise. Cheers!

TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2013
12 oz bottle from Jewel Osco (Lisle, IL). This ended up in one slot of my Noble Pils sixer. Im a little upset about it. So I guess Ill rate it. Pours a dulled hazy golden orange hue, firmer haze in the body, brighter golden edges with a small frothy offwhite head. Stays as a decent layer, laces small. Lively carbonation, a bit darker in the body almost amber. Aromas are firmer strong coriander, flaked wheat, bit of suntan lotion. Mellow orange rind and fruit grows, dough, some estery fruit. Bigger coriander presence than I generally like, a little sweet. Initial is lighter end of the fold, a bit of jump in the middle. Some fuzzy dry carbonation hits the palate into the middle. Front end is a bit soapy, floral, gentle citrusy orange and fruit. Middle is a bit bland, doughy, and fruity. Some gentle dryness at times, mellow carbonation. Backend shows some sweeter bread, wheat, and dough. A bit grainy, with gentle florals and soap. Backend is a bit bland, orange oils are subtle with lingering earth, gentle yeastiness, and lingering coriander coolness. A bit odd. The nose felt like a coriander bomb but the beer itself was a bit more enjoyable, a bit dry, if a bit flabby at times. Ok. Not really my choice for a Wit though.

Westkyoto77 (635) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 16, 2013
Bottle. Subtly spiced, orange and grain nose. Pretty inviting. Kind of deep colour for a white, almost the hue of roasted carrot. Almost perfect medium-light body. Crisp but with good flavours of grain, tangerine. Fantastic stuff for out of a bottle.

Piaculus (4) - California, USA - AUG 14, 2013 does not count
Bottle pour in a stein. Hazy goldenrod, with a small off-white head. Coriander heavy nose. Decent spice and mild citrus flavor, behind a strong bready grain. Medium body. Slightly sour, medium bitter on the finish. Residual sweetness would be a good pair with duck or lamb.

Poobah (421) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Light gold with a thin head and a citrusy nose. Malty intro with a lightly-carbonated mouthfeel, and an overripe banana, lemony finish.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Dirty straw in color, slight sediment, thin sudsy white head, little lacing.   Bright spicy nose, corriander, grains of paradise, and a candied citrus peel.   Remains spicy on the tongue, strong, but not sharp.   Also a mealy wheatiness.   Spices die off rather quickly, leaving only the mealy wheatiness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Strong nose, strong start, falls off rather quickly.   Wished this one were brighter.   Tiz pretty much middle of the road.

Sammer (1119) - Plano, Texas, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle. Taste is wheat, hay, grain, water and baking spices, with some orange zest thrown in. Decent.

jgentgesdo (694) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Pours a pale hazy amber with minimal head. A little muddy looking. Nose is candy, orange, tangerine, grains of paradise, coriander, a little wheat backbone. Very sweet. A little watery. Ok.

Braudog (6630) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Bottle. This has the look of any number of American takes on witbier, slightly hazy and orange-gold. Not much of an aroma here. But the beer drinks with a decently respectable body, just a hint of spice and gristiness, but generally drinks like a "regular ol beer." Clean and unoffending. (#5188, 8/3/2013)

seymour (1970) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Tasted from pitchers into sampler glasses at the St. Louis Brews meeting. It poured a slightly hazy orange amber colour with no foam or lace. Perhaps the carbonation was lost in all the pouring and transporting. True-to-style Belgian Wit: grainy, soft, slightly bready, citrusy, some clove and black pepper phenols, definitely some orange peel, hint of anise/black licorice, a bit too much residual sweetness. Better than Blue Moon or Shock Top, not as good as Paulaner or other classic examples.
