Notes/Commercial Description:
This traditional Belgian-style wheat ale is brewed with the addition of freshly ground coriander and curacao orange peel. Hops are outshone by the wonderful floral aromas that dominate the nose of this dry and quaffable beer.

Definitely a great belgian style wit, profound not really, but delicious definitely

Pours a cloudy light orange, light foamy head
Aromas of orange, coriander and spice, light and fruity.
Similar orange and coriander profile in flavours with a great light and soft mouthfeel, very drinkable.
Could easily see myself drinking a couple of these on a hot summer day, not going to change your life but a very very good beer from a cool local brewery.

Pours a cloudy yellow colour with a very citrus like nose. This is a very fruity wit with lots of citrus on the finish and a light bubbly feel to the mouthfeel. I like the way this tastes like warm weather in a bottle. No lack of flavour here as this Wit ups the fruit notes.

22oz bomber pours a light, white wheat, crystal clear at top, cloudy on the bottom. A finger or two oh white, foamy head that dissipates, leaving no lacing. Lots of little bubbles.

Smell is fresh. Orange, spices, grains. Definitely light.

Smell is nice, same orange notes, coriander, wheat. Sparkly carbonation gives it a lively feel.

Nice light fare, goes easily with a meal or by itself, and yet different and quality enough to make you take note. A nice offering from a quality new brewery.
