Our interpretation of this classic and refreshing Belgian style ale is brewed with pilsner and wheat malts. Freshly ground coriander and Curacao orange peel, along with a special Wit yeast strain, contribute wonderful orange and citrus aromas and a crisp, yet silky, mouthfeel.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Light golden yellow color to this brew. Bright active head on the pour and very active carbonation in the glass while drinking. Some random lacing on the edges of the glass.

Smell: Mild aroma of wheat, prairie grass, straw, and mild fruit accents like bananas. The mild wheat, barley, and tobacco carry this down to earth aroma.

Taste: Pretty close to what I imagined it would be from the aroma, but there is a little more emphasis on the light fruit. Some lemon and melon sweetness with a down to earth feeling of bananas and cloves. Light dryness left on the palate with accents of wheat and barley.

Mouthfeel: A dry light sweetness is pleasant.

Overall: Has a ton of the accents a nice summer beer should have. Nothing that blows you away, but through and through a rounded and pleasant beer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A-Cloudy light yellow, some carbonation and one finger head.

S-Banana, clove, coriander, lemon, grass and some spice.

T-Balance isn't quite there. Lemon and orange, something metallic, tad bit of coriander.

M-Lighter, well carbonated but a tad on the watery side.

O-The combination of the off balance and the slight metallic taste ruined the beer.

your classic American reincarnation of a Belgian wit. this one is a little heavy on both the coriander and the orange, but it works. bright yellow pour, almost looks like an electric hoegaarden, with similar haze and head. the nose is really herbal, and super yeasty. tons of lemon zest notes and sudsy spice from the Belgian yeast. flavor starts off with light wheat malt, followed by bitter and sweet orange peel alike, and finally a super herbal wash from toasted coriander seeds and maybe even fresh coriander, its potent. low alcohol but tons of body on this one, a little heavier than the style asks for, and isn't as sessionable as a result. good carbonation though, and a light soapy texture to its long finish. two of these was plenty, as its just a tad filling. nothing way out here, just a good American tip of the cap to the Belgian witbier. this one is more robust than most.
