Clear golden color in the Blanche de Chambly glass with a modest head. Brewery says this is made with coriander and bitter orange peel, plus Sterling hops and Belgian yeast. Still, I wouldn't call it a Witbier. Sorghum, chestnuts, and buckwheat are the featured fermentables.

Somewhat sweet and oddly spicy. This is like some kind of bakery item, a scone flavored with buckwheat and fruitcake. The flavor is just strange, but if you use your imagination it could be a Tripel with that fruity note and the drying yeasty effect. Cookie taste, beet sweetness, and a grainy finish.

As with most of these de-glutenized brews, the carbonation fails sooner than you would like. Still, Harvester is making the most drinkable of these concoctions and this one is worth a try for the experience. Just don't think of it any traditional beer style. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at The Market in Anacortes, Washington.
