look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

a: yellow and opaque, bright, big fizzy pure white head that sticks around but not much lacing.

s: lemon, wheat, herbs, coriander, some other spices

t: follows the nose with coriander and curaçao peel playing a big role. taste lingers, but tastes a tad sour on the very back end. Perhaps a little stale, as it is on the older side

m: thin bubbly body is a little to champagne-like for me. also a bit sticky on the back end.

o: not a bad white ale, certainly a good beer on a warm spring or summer day, but the mouthfeel brought this one down.

Can poured into a dogfish spiegelau glass. Canned on 2/20/14

Looks a clouded pale golden honey. Smells of coriander, orange, spice and heavy wheat. Not a huge witbier guy but this smells yummy. Taste is sweet and very smooth, lots of balance with the citrus and spice. CCB has done it again!

Glassware: Tulip
Appearance: Pale yellow in color. Hazy with low carbonation. Pours with a large head
Aromatics: There is a large amount of wheat with the biscuity smell from the Belgian yeast. Orange and coriander.
Flavor: There is a lot of fruit at the start oranges lemons and even a little lime. The middle hits with coriander and the end is biscuity. The mouthfeel is fairly smooth but all the flavors are a little watered down and dull.

White Ale brewed with curacao peel and coriander. Canned by Cigar City Brewing (not "brewed and canned by…"?), LLC, Tampa, FL. Drink fresh! Do not age! Pour gently into a glass.
Good idea, think I will…

Clouded, pale yellow coloring. Nice white head, slips down to nil.

Aroma: There it is, citrus and spice and wheat. Note perfect witbier nose.

Taste: Smooth, sweet, lightly hoppy, turning dry in the end. Light bodied, crisp, refreshing, comforting. Orange and lemon flavors match beautiful with the spice and roll off the tongue with the wheat. Tastes just like a wit should.

Pours a hazy lemon straw with a billowing white head that slowly dissipates.

Lemon, coriander,a touch of clove, and what form the aroma. Lemon dominates. There's an earthy, lightly funny character.

Lemon dominates the flavor, as well, with orange and orange pith taking over mid palate and carrying into the finish. Slightly sweet, bready malt forms the backbone, becoming crackery in the finish. Coriander and banana weave throughout.

Body is moderate, with fairly spritzy carbonation.

More character than expected. Yeast esters are nice and somewhat complex, considering some examples I've recently had. Citrus definitely dominates.
