On tap at Refuge Brewery – Temecula, CA
Notes from 08/18/13 - 4oz taster

A: Super light watered down blonde color with an abundance of wheat haze that obstruct any visibility. Frothy bone white finger cap with ample stay power and some nice squiggly stick down the glass.

S: Smells of soft Belgian yeast spices with some nice orange citrus zesting. There is a bit of grainy wheat malt character present as well. Very nice and pleasant with the fresh orange zest coming through.

T: Tastes of some mild Belgian yeast spice, wheat malts, and nice orange citrus flesh flavors. Balanced and not overkill with the fruit. A dash of coriander with a light underlying herbal hoppiness noted as well. The beer has a moderate to low level of bitterness and the alcohol is completely masked throughout. Very light and dry. Quite refreshing with the citrus additions well balanced.

M: Very light body with a spritzy carbonation and a super drying crisp finish. Relatively clean overall.

D: This is a very good Wit beer which is not a favorite style of mine by any means. Very light and crisp with a refreshing citrus twist.
The perfect warm weather brew. Their best seller according to the tender.

Let's start light. On-tap at the source, and on to the beer:

its body is cloudy and the color of a washed out sunfield. Glops of lace hang around the glass. The aroma hit the nose with a vibrant note of orange peel, orange peel, and more orange peel. The note of oats adds a soft sweetness to the aroma. There's something about this witbier which makes it great. Its vibrant, especially with the taste of orange, and plating along are soft hits of coriander and oats. I also sense a kiss of spearmint. I don't get a yeast note, though as it stands, this witbier already rocks and is very easy to drink.
