A cross between an American Wheat and a Belgian Wit, this refreshing ale is made with white wheat, ground corriander, and fresh whole oranges! Simply delicious served with a slice of orange.

Appearance: Cloudy golden, with a flat, almost-no-carbonation pour. Thus, no lace, either. As with their Tornado Alley Amber, this one begins poorly.

Aroma: Spicy, yeasty, herbal, perfumey, almost like a lavender note. Not bad, not great.

Taste: Brisk, with a tangy wheat and citrus vibe dominating, and the coriander spicing up around the finish. Not bad, but overall quite forgettable.

Pours to a limp white head that dissipates. Hazy yellow-orange. Aroma is sharp wheat, citrus and chablis. Flavor is orange, coriander and wheat malt as expected. Mouthfeel is light and moderate CO2. Overall, a decent beer that hits many of the style points.

Pours a hazy pale yellow with an almost non-existent head. Smells of some coriander and a hint of lemon. Taste is a citrusy, wheaty beginning, followed by a powerful acidic sourness, finishing with a huge freshly brewed tea finish. Mouthfeel is good. Overall a good beer, though not really to Witbier style with the intense acidic sourness. I do wonder if it is supposed to taste that way? Even if it is an infection and not intended, it surprisingly tastes pretty good. I would get this again.

Slightly hazy orange color. A few visible bubbles. Descent off-white head with poor retention and minimal lace.

Fresh citrus aroma, primarily orange.

Flavor of sweet orange with a grapefruit bitterness. Wheat malt character. Belgian yeast. Smooth and satisfying.

Lighter end of medium body. Smooth texture throughout. Good carbonation.

Solid wit. Well balanced, tasty and easy to drink.
