It's slightly cloudy yellow/burnt orange with a very small coating of a head. A pretty mellow yet enticing aroma of citrus and coriander greets you. I'm surprised by the pleasant hop presence here. It's very mellow and makes for a wonderful touch. This combined with citrus twang and orange peel make for one heluva refreshing brew. An awesome summer beer here.

Brewed with Pilsen and Wheat Malts, Cascade & First Gold Hops, coriander and orange peel.

OG 1.050, 5.0% ABV, 22.19 IBU.

Even with a vigorous pour, this brilliantly clear, light orange-golden brew formed a tiny head atop small bubbles with sparse lacing. Retention is poor. Carbonation is medium-light. Aroma is full of that typical Cascade nose (which I don't really care for) with a subtle, bitter white celery note (is that the coriander?). Taste starts with a full Cascade hop flavor with characteristic New Holland huskiness, sweet feeling in the back of the throat when the crisp malts kick in. The orange peel is just barely noticeable in the finish, which is a well-balanced bitterness complementing the husky, sweet pilsen malts. Mouthfeel is very crisp and wet with a medium-light body. The finish is lightly astringent, secondary to the husky grains. Drinkability is OK, and I would prefer this over Oberon as a summer thirst-quencher, which tends to more bready, and limits it's drinkability. New Holland has some great, unique brews which have not disappointed.

This is an average wit, but it doesn't hold a candle to the better wits out there like Celis & Hoegarden. The cascade hops really ruin this one...the Sierra Nevada taste competely overpowers any subtlety. Replace those with some Saaz and lots more orange peel and it might be good.

5/31/04 "Orange Infused" version. Pours out to a pale, cloudy, straw lemon, forming a modest white head with a vigorous pour with poor retention and no lacing. Carbonation is mild to moderate. Aroma of american standard wheat with lemon and orange citrus, and distant Saaz hops. Mouthfeel is tart and smooth with a light body. Taste is an echo of the aroma with a distant orange note towards the finish, preceded by a medium woody bitterness, and finishing with some grain husk and husk astringency. Nothing too exciting, and I can't say different from the previous version except for a slight orange note towards the finish.

A clouded coral with a few miscreant floaties when poured with yeast. Nose is heavy on orange peel and dough. Nicely bittered and a pleasant tang finish. An excellent Summer brew that approaches what a real Wit is all about.

@ New Holland Brewery/Brewpub

This beer was a dark, cloudy yellow color that had a white head that left some lace. The aroma was slightly of coriander and citrus. The flavor was of hops and coriander with a bit of citrus. Had a light finish. This beer's elements weren't as strong as Lakefront's or Allagash's. Some people may be disappointed by this while other's may prefer this style that is not overpowering. Not a bad beer.
