Clementine being my all-time favorite orange, I was excited to pick this up. Pours with a hazy orange-straw-ish colored body with lots of activity inside. Smell is a strong yeast mingled with strong tart clementine peel/juice.

The sweetness from the wheat hits first with a strong follow-up of coriander and spicy phenols added from the Belgian yeast. Light velvety body with a sharper carbonation, this beer is a great refreshment, especially in the summer.

pours out a hazy orange color with a big fluffy white head that stands two and a half fingers tall. head eventually recedes to a frothy cap leaving loads of lacing behind. the nose is greeted with orange and spice. the taste backs up what the nose experienced with lots of orange,coriander and a nice hop presence to balance it out. mouthfeel was crisp and bubbly with a short dry finish that leaves you wanting more. overall i feel that this is a good example of what a white ale should be.

Bottle (2011)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, MrHirschybar!

Golden yellow and orange with some light haze running throughout. White head and some spotted lacing down the glass.

Aroma consists of yeast, slight banana, and a bit of citrus, though it's somewhat mild.

Similar flavors are found when compared to the aroma. The flavors of citrus, slightly tangy Belgian yeast, some coriander, and banana blend well for a simple, classic, somewhat plain witbier.

Thin to medium bodied with ample carbonation. Easy to drink.

A decent, mild witbier.

This beer poured out as a hazy yellow color with a pretty decent looking white head on top that sticks to the glass fairly well. The smell of the beer has some citrusy aromas along with the wheat softness coming though too. The taste of the beer doesn't have too much of a fruit flavor like I thought it might. The mouthfeel of the beer is light and refreshing. Overall this brew is a good summer beer for sure.

Poured into a Delirium Tremens snifter. No readable freshness date.

A- Pours a very cloudy bronze color with a good one finger head that lingers awhile until falling to an 1/8 inch head and very resilient lacing.

S- Smells of candied oranges and has zesty bursts of lemon, grapefruit (possibly brought on by the hops) and star fruit.

T- Smooth yet flavorful citrus flavors with some noticeable spice to complement. Tastes like orange soda but in a more natural way than something like Blue Moon or Lost Coast Tangerine. Very easy to drink and enjoyable.

M- The only drawback to this one is how it's semi-acidic going down. It loses points for that but, otherwise, the feel is great and the carbonation is spot-on.

O- Where did these guys come from? This is the second beer I've had by them and the second to make my jaw drop. I can only hope the rest of their lineup is just as stellar.

A: this beer is a very nice cloudy yellow with barely any head at all.

S: the beer has a great tangerine scent with a good amount of sweetness. Smells very close to a Rosa Blanca wine.

T: The beer has a very strong orange taste, with a very faint malt and a finish of a tripel style beer.

M: The beer is very crisp, sort of burns going down, but its not bad at all. It goes well with a beer that tastes like orange juice.

O: This beer is very nice and different. I have never had a beer with so much orange taste and its very tasty. This is a great beer when you get tired of your typical beer.
