The common additions of orange peel and coriander are strongly suggested in witbier, but they are only acceptable when they complement the already present peppery spice and fruity esters that the beer produces naturally. While many overdo it, Rockmill brewers are content to allow the yeast to do much of the speaking.

Its pour comes way of hazy straw appearances and a creamy blanket of froth to lay across. Taken back by its earthy tone, the scents are musty of vinous cork, cellar musk, and mild farmhouse. its soft apple cider upstart is short on sweet but bold on white wine acidity.

Its bubbly effervescence is suggestive of chardonnay and chapagne as the apple, orange and lemon accents crawl swiftly across the palate. Trending dry and spicy, the ale begins to sell more "saison" character than that of wheat.

Yet its dry and racy finish is prickly and slightly warming- each are highlighted by peppery spice and its vinously dry tartness, With echoes of dried citrus, the taste of straw-like bite and grasses decorate the finish with floral whimsy.

Pretty good wit here. Nice citrus tones. Mild earthy and grass characteristics. Very easy to drink and very well balanced. The only detractor is a high level of carbonationl Beyond that though, this is a well executed example of the style. Another nice one from Rockmill.

Appearance: This beer pours a pale straw golden color and is topped with just a thin layer of head.
Smell: The aroma of this wit has a slight malt and yeast aroma but I can smell the slightest amount of possible funky aroma might be spoiled.
Taste: The taste of the beer doesn’t have a funky taste it is rather good for the style I am not a big wit beer fan but the yeast is subtle enough that it doesn’t dominate the malt flavor.
Mouthfeel: This is a thin but tasty beer I just wish that the aroma was better.

Poured from a bottle into 2 glasses. Done as split pour with the last quarter of the bottle swirled to get the sediment from the bottom.
A cloudy yellow color looks nice.
Not much aroma maybe a little sour bread and fruit.
The initial taste is almost like water with a coriander and yeast bread finish.
Mouthfeel is very light again like water. The finish has a light pleasant carbonation that helps accentuate the slight spiciness of the coriander.
Overall a night lighter tasting brew.

A: The beer is clear light yellow in color and has a very light amount of visible carbonation. It is very carbonated and poured with a two finger high white head that gradually died down but never completely faded away.
S: There are light to moderate aromas of grainy malts and earthy yeast in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of grainy malts and earthy yeast with a slight amount of bitterness. There are also some notes of spices towards the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This tastes more like a "farmhouse" witbier if there is such a style as it shares some similarities with a saison.

Light scents of coriander, baked bread, and just a touch of citrus orange to round it out. I would say this smells like a poppyseed bagel if you replaced the poppy seeds with coriander.

Beautiful opaque straw gold color with the crispest white head (and plenty of it) to top it off. No visible carbonation but the lacing rings it leaves around the glass are quite nice.

Right upfront it has a nice coriander flavor that flows through the beer. It's accompanied by this wonderfully yeast-heavy bread flavor in the middle and finishes again on a spicy note of coriander. It is super carbonated, and I mean high carbonation. Moderate body feels just about right for this beer. The carbonation makes it a bit hard to drink, as it foams easily. It is refreshing, tasty, and a wonderful example of a Belgian Wit inside the good ol' U.S. of A.
