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!

Suttree (6392) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 7, 2013
From the "Spring Thaw" mix pack. Cloudy orange, decent white head. Pretty typical for the style, I guess. Some yeasty notes, some wheaty notes, some spicy notes. Perhaps a tad overbearing.

12 oz. bottle. Very similar to all the other seasonal witbiers from SA in the past… It pours a nice semi clear golden color with a shrinking white head. The aroma jumps out with ginger, tangerine, orange peel and wheat. The flavor has more tangerine, wheat and citrus peel, but too heavy and sweet to be really exciting. Not a bad beer by any means, but it needs to be dryer and lighter to showcase the subtleties.

Lemon lime and coriander nose. Hazy golden, medium head. Fizzy . Stale malt and unmalted barley flavor, wheat bread crust, lemon, coriander. Spicier and fruitier than Shock Top, maltier than Blue Moon, eerily similar quality though. I have defended Boston Beer’s craft brewery status for years against those who suggest they should no longer be considered craft. Despite it’s size, Boston Beer has continued to make quality beer in a variety of interesting styles. This beer, however, makes me at least consider if they haven’t sold out.

355ml bottle pours a slightly hazy golden color with a finger of white head that settles to reveal only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is orange zest with some hints of grains and yeast. Taste is a light spicy and citrus hop bitterness with a mild malty sweetness finishing with some dry and yeasty notes. A decent brew, but nothing memorable.

TheBeerGod (6224) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy gold with a medium, dense white head. Aroma is spicy with lots of citrus zest, orange and grains. Taste is mostly sweet with soft lemon candy, candied orange, wheat notes yeast and light spices. Body is medium with a dense, prickly carbonation. Ends with more spices, sweet malt notes, grains, yeast and candied citrus fruit. Not bad.

JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 3, 2017
Hazed golden liquid. Modest off-white head. Big citric scents. Some orange blossom honey, spice and pale malt scents in the background. Some sweet resin, wheat, malt and spice mix in the flavors. Thicker, nearly chewy feel. Finish has some light spice and bready flavors. 2/13

The new beer of the spring pack I was most impressed with seems to be the exception. A nice light flavor that isn’t too wheaty at all. Far superior to a Blue Moon, it’s quite smooth. Would definitely drink another.

3.5
thedm (6186) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 4, 2013
This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a medium sized head of foamy very off-white colored bubbles that were and left behind a very softly carbonated semi-hazy dark yellow orange colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was citrus and coriander. The bubbly mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering sweet aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of chamomile citrus fruity and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

3.4
Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Pours a hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma is full of wheat and coriander. The flavor has a lot of coriander and grains of paradise as well as some orange peel and wheat. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

2.7
Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - FEB 12, 2013
It pours a hazy golden orange into my nonic. Foamy, clingy lacing spider webs around the glass. A thick one inch white foamy head appears and lasts a good minute. Some slowly moving carbonation is seen rising. The smell is soap, orange, and lemon coming through in a spicy way. Hops are there but very subdued. No yeast is smelled. The taste takes the citrusy smells and adds a bit of a subdued wheat flavoring. No yeast is tasted. The mouthfeel is medium with nothing harsh on the tongue. It has a watery aftertaste and finish. This is very sessionable. Overall, a bit different for a real witbier ("where’s the yeast?), but I liked it for me. I’d have it again.
