Notes/Commercial Description:
Stegmaier High Dive is traditional Belgian-style wheat ale that boasts a dense pale straw color with a velvety white head. Our brewers masterfully blend the finest extra pale two-row and white malts to bring a crisp taste to the brew. High Dive captures a satisfying sweetness by introducing unique ingredients such as sweet orange peel, curacao bitter orange peel and coriander. Enjoy straight from the bottle or served with a slice of orange, this witbier is a perfect way to dive into summer!

A - Poured from a bottle into a Pilsner glass, lots of head that disappates quickly, leaving lacing all over the glass. It's very active with carbonation and is very light and carbonated. Nothing too special here.

S - Smells like oranges. Wonderful orange aroma with some hints of cereal, a little sugar, some citrus acidity, and this wonderful flowery summer aroma. Smells very refreshing. A perfect summer beer.

T - The orange I smelled and the orange I actually taste are two different things. I do taste some orange, but it's overpowered by a little too much citrus acidity and hoppy bite. That being said, it tastes wonderful otherwise. A nice crisp blond ale.

M - Very light and effervescent feel in my mouth, almost like a soda. Very light and goes down even lighter. Was hoping for a little more of a creaminess or a thickness, but for what it is, not bad.

O - By no means a bad beer, I just wish it had more orange. Kind of reminiscent of Shock Top or Blue Moon, but without the wheat heaviness I despise. Imagine either of those with no wheat and a little less orange, and you'd have High Dive. It has just the right amount of this wonderfully sharp hoppy citrus bite and some light carbonation. The light orange notes also are in its favor in this regard, as too much orange would make it taste like one of those Hard Lemonade things. Not the best orange beer I've ever had, but an absolutely awesome session beer for a hot summer day.

a very refreshing summer brew with the orange in there, works for out of the bottle refreshment in warmer weather. hazy pale in color, but holding a decent white head, and smelling more like lager beer than anything else, although the orange peel is unmistakable. some the about the water with the beers from these guys. it has a different chemistry or ph or something, its not off at all, but is there in the finish of everything they make. i find it pleasantly mineral based, slightly phosphoric, but clean and not distracting or filling or leaving any weird residue on the palate. citrus fruit throughout this beer, orangey and juicy and fresh and ripe. the beer itself is real light, clean and drinkable. its summer beer for sure, but doesnt really take the style anywhere it hasn't been a few hundred times already. fully active carbonation and a crisp finish. down easy right from the bottle, i could have upwards of ten of these under the right conditions. not as good as their winter, but still well tasty.

This was encouraged by the waitress at Revellos pizza in Old Forge PA when I was visiting. I always like to try local brews in places where I travel so I gave it a try.

Poured from a bottle. Head was kind of small and dissipated quickly. Straw in color, a bit hazy with a few small bits of yeast sediment in the bottom

Smell is malty, yeasty with a touch of sweetness and citrus and a hint of floral aroma.

Taste was pretty good and was very fresh. Quite a bit of malt up front with a nice citrus orange taste. There was also a taste of yeast and a bit of coriander. Not much bitterness with this one so it can go down pretty quick. Very refreshing too, not a bad summer brew at all. I would have it again.
