Notes/Commercial Description:
We’ve shaken up traditional tastes by brewing a spiced Belgian-style wheat ale with real orange, lemon and lime peels,and then added a little coriander spice to the mix. This uniquely-crafted and award-winning ale is unfiltered to create a brew that is naturally cloudy with a light golden color and a smooth, refreshing finish.

leftover from a family reunion, decided to review the last bottle alongside Voodoo's wit.

Pours a pale golden color with a fizzy white head that dissipates very quickly. There is a hint of belgian spicy yeast on the nose but it is very muted. Like someone dropped a single clove in my glass, I can just barely smell it. I also get a stale sugar aroma, it reminds me of a 7-up that has been left on the counter all day. The taste is flaccid, I get a touch of coriander but more of that stale soda flavor that I got on the nose. The mouthfeel is extremely thin and soda like, I am sure it would be really drinkable on a hot day. Overall if someone offered it to me on a hot day I would drink it but I won't seek it out.

A - A cloudy orange, with a foamy head that disappeared quickly.

S - Smells sweet, maybe honey, but not a normal wheat sweetness. More like sugar

T - Some different spices mixed in with a little bit of lemon and A LOT of orange.

M - Very smooth with a good feel on the tongue and a clean finish.

O - A decent beer for a change-up, but nothing I'm rushing back to.

In a pint glass:

A: pale orange colored body with a small head that dissipates quickly, and it has minimal lacing

S: orange/citrus with a little bread/wheat added in

T: light sweet orange and biscuity bready malt

M: medium, sessionable, some carbonation felt on the tongue, alcohol felt, dry sweet finish

O: its a beer that is trying to do something different, but just doesn't quite have it just yet, no yeast so its not a real witbier, would I have again, unsure - ???
