Stirring from the haze of winter, this refreshing unfiltered White Ale awakens its smooth wheat with the bright snap of spring spices. From the subtle sweetness of orange peel and plum to the peppery bite of fresh ground coriander, the blend of spices creates just the right refreshing kick to signal that spring is on its way.

Excellent take on a white ale. I still miss Sam Adams White Ale, but this is a great replacement.

Poured into my trusty Stella Artois pint glass. Clean crisp and very clear with minimal head. Went down really smooth. The taste is above average and one of the best white beers i have had in a long time. It really hit the spot on a very cold Indiana day when we were colder than the other 49 states

12 oz bottle poured into a lager glass.

A - Hazy light peach. Two finger head settles to a film that never leaves. Nice lacing.

S - Tangerine and coriander. Plum comes through after sitting a few minutes.

T - Malts, citrus, and coriander blend blissfully. Finishes with light hops.

M - Medium

O - Delicious and very refreshing! If you find one, grab it. Excellent session brew. Cheers!

I hate almost all winter brews but this; this is great. It's almost like a Belgian with coriander only with some caramel, pepper, and cinnamon so it's not to dark but not light either.
