Notes/Commercial Description:
White Ale's are Belgian style beers, often refered to as "Wit" beer. Our version of this classic style is a wonderful spicy brew, infused with orange peel and coriander spices. It has a crisp refreshing flavor and a slight 'white' haze from the large percentage of wheat used in the mash.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Light straw color appropriate to the style. White cap of fine bubbles.

Smells detect sour apple, lemon, wheat and slight corriander.

Taste has more robust flavors of lemon/bitter orange peel, corriander and light wheat. A spicy bite too.

Mouthfeel is light/moderate carbonation with crisp mouth puckering sour finish.

Overall a good belgian wit beer.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a cloudy yellow with almost no head, just a bit of lacing.

Hard to tell exactly what I am smelling here. Seems to be wheat and malt, and liekly a mix of spices.

Can taste the wheat up front. There is a bit of banana and clove, maybe a hint of orange peel and coriander. Finishes with a bit of a hop bite.

Fairly solid feel, decent amount of carbonation makes itself known.

This one is a bit hard to review. It is a bit different, has a lot of flavor, but hard to pinpoint exactly what. It goes down easy, and has a nice flavor to it.
