12 oz bottle, no date

hazy orange yellow color, basically no head, but bubbles stream up to the surface. aroma of herbal spicy yeast and a bit of wheat. the same flavors in the taste, but mild. thin body, fizzy carbonation.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of tangerines, somewhat sweet. Taste is of oranges and tangerines, some sweetness, a bit of wheat, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a very good session beer.

On-tap at the brewpub, served with an orange wedge.

This, in my opinion, is ABW's most consistent beer, and possibly their best. It's a balanced and flavorful wit that's fairly true to style, but not just a Hoegaarden copycat. This one's a little bit thicker with a creamy, bready wheat flavor balanced by mellow, yet rich Belgian candi spice. This is the beer to try at either Brew Works locations. I wish I could say as much for their other Belgian options, or even any of their beers, but this one has always been a winner.
