Sherwood Forest Friars Belgian-Style White Ale

Friar’s Belgian White Ale! Everyone loved the jovial Friar Tuck. His Belgian Ale is a creamy brew flavored with orange peel and coriander for a pleasant citrus-spice sweetness.

Rated on 12-26-2010 (Bottle) This beer has a frothy, very fizzy white head with a short retention, transparent yellow body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and virtually no lacing. The aromas are yeast, wheat, spice, coriander, and citrus orange. The taste is sweet, spice, fruity, coriander, and citrus orange. The mouth feel is lively and this beer is light-medium bodied. There is something amiss with the flavor of this beer as the flavors just do not meet up well. It does not taste old or anything along that line. It is hard to define.

March 2010. Bottle. Pretty bland beer without a whole lot going on. Yellow to orange color with a white head. Spice, malt and yeast aromas that just blends together without really coming together.

A - Pours a cloudy orange. Half inch head goes away about halfway through. Some lacing going on. S - Grain, musty clove, roasted corn, muted tart citrus, sweet Belgium yeast. T - Coarse wheat, Belgian yeast, white pepper, spicy citrus, harsh florals. Spicy clove aftertaste. The nose on this one didn’t impress but the complexity of flavors made up for it. Lots of flavors going on with this beer. A little rough around the edges but a good wit if your looking for some spice. Good mouthfeel for the style. Serving type: bottle 06-23-2010

A golden yellow colored beer with hardly any head at all. The aroma is sweet with citrus, wheat, and yeast. The flavor has the usual suspects, orange and coriander, but a mild spiciness, pine, and lemon. Pretty standard fare for a witbier.

agillespie81 (315) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 17, 2011
Aroma - wheat, citrus, clove; Appearance - golden, very hazy, slightly opaque, fluffy head, laces well; Taste - basic wheat malt front, balanced citrus sweetness in the back, finish has a slight clove spice; Palate - pretty smooth, nice body; Overall - well built brew, complex yet not overdone.

jimhilt (2626) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 28, 2011
Pours three-finger white head that fades slowly and leaving some lace. Hazy pale amber color, some yeast left in bottle. Light-medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Yeasty nose. Flavor is yeast and light semi-sweet lemon. $2.15 for a 12 oz bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, Ma.

jredmond (8645) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 14, 2011
Bottle. Poured a clear yellowish with no head no lacing. Aroma is wheat and funky. Mouthfeel is offensive with wheat notes.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2011
Bottle. Pours yellow and straw-colored with a small white head. The aroma is faint orangepeel, coriander, and lemon, but these are quite subdued, and I really have to concentrate to identify anything. The flavor is mild orange and coriander, some yeast, and faint floral notes. Thin mouthfeel. Meh. Labeled "best before Oct.," but there’s no year stamp. Perhaps an old bottle? Nah, probably just a "meh" beer. [631]

WhatsAleInMe (8) - Alabama, USA - JAN 7, 2011 does not count
I put a 6 pack of Hoegaarden back in order to support a local business. My mistake. There’s nothing inherently wrong with this brew. Everything I want in a Belgian White is there, but barely. A Belgian white for people who really want a Bud light.

Rciesla (5607) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden body with a scant bubbly lacing. Fruity perfume hop tones and light lemon zest. A hing of lead and ash, maybe oxidation notes. A bit malty and then a lemon and coriander finish. Eh.
