on tap at tapestry in philly

Pours a completely hazed golden straw yellow color with some brighter orange hues. Thinner layering of white head slowly dissolves into wispy film and plenty of lacing on the glass.

Nice, punchy nose with some floral hops and peppery spice. Juicy with orange and citrus. Some sweeter notes with bread and honey.

Floral hoppiness up front with some pepper and spice. Decent amount of citrus washes across the tongue with orange and grapefruit. Hints of wheat and straw with bready malt backbone. Juicy and flavorful in the finish with no alcohol.

Medium body, slightly higher carbonation, refreshing and zesty on the tongue. A highly drinkable and tasty beer - this would be nice on a spring/summer day.

A hazy straw color with a soapy white head. Smells of fresh wheat and a bit of lemon. Sweet bread flavors start the flavors out, followed by some spicy coriander, and a lemony finish. Mouthfeel is smooth. Overall a good witbeer. I would get this again.

A: One of the palest beer I ever had. Very very pale yelow, with big white frothy head. Pretty good retention and lacing.

S: Somewhat reminiscent of "La Find du Monde". There is a good amount of green apple skin like tartness in this. There is also a good amount of coriander, cloves and pepper. Some fresh mint. Some orange juice. Very inviting.

T: Superbly juicy with lots of orange juice and green apple skin. Good coriander, cloves and pepper with the mint being still in there. I'd only add candi sugar to the list.

M: Very light feeling body with medium to strong carbonation. Very refreshing.

O: This might very well be the best witbier I ever had. I had this beer in the fridge for over 12 months, I don't know if it changed anything to the beer because it seems very awesome and the reviews seem to show it's more of a "meh" beer. Anyway...

Enjoyed on tap at the Meddlesome Moth in Dallas, Texas.

Exceptionally hazy unfiltered wheat beer with remarkably mild flavors. The same notes we all know and love from Belgian Whites, orange peel and coriander, are mellowed out a great deal, allowing the wheat to push through more. I enjoyed this beer, perhaps because it was so mild. The less aggressive coriander spicing left the beer more drinkable than others of the style, in my opinion.

It's not a beer that I will fiend for in the future, or really remember again until I see it, but I definitely wouldn't turn it down.

This pours a pale white color, surprisingly so. White ale, who knew? Ha. Lots of foam that gives off a crisp aroma with hints of coriander, orange zest and other delicious esters.
The flavor is nuanced and layered, with coriander, sage, citrus zest all playing in the background a pleasing melody. Wonderful, sweet finish.
