Notes/Commercial Description:
Our interpretation of a traditional Belgian wheat beer. Brewed with a generous portion of wheat and spiced with coriander and Curacao orange peel, this beer is fruity, refreshing and slightly cloudy in appearance.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a cloudy dirty blonde beer with a great creamy foam white lace that eventually settles into a patchy laced head with sticky trails along its path of rest.

Smell is rather clean and soft with a yeasty edge, faint spice (corriander, white pepper), hint of grassy lemon and orange.

Very smooth and silky body and mouthfeel. A bit rough around the edges with musty yeast, grain notes, a sparking mineral/seltzer water fizz and flavour and orange peel/rind bitterness. Fruity apricot flavour works itself out and blends in with the malt sweetness, followed by a mixed bag of spices follows and really embeds its flavours deep into the palate where it stays to the end -- herbally, white pepper. Malts are semi-sweet and show off more in the body. Bitterness comes in the form of a lemony grass flavour, it's a bit sharp, tangy. Yeast and grain flavours in the finish.

A very traditional Belgian Style Wit beer. All the flavours and characteristics are pretty damn spot on for a US made brew. One of New England's greats ...

4.5/5  rDev +8.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: 12 oz. short twist, gives directions on how to properly pour the beer on the label. No freshness date on the bottle but the case box had a bottled on date on top.

Appearance: Cloudy pale yellow in colour with a creamy big bubbled lace that shows no problem of retaining. A classic White Ale look.

Smell: An extravagant spicy mix and a touch of lemon hit the nose sharp. Coriander and orange peel are evident as well as an earthy yeast.

Taste: Crisp and a bit smooth with a moderate body and medium carbonation. Soft flavours of barley and wheat are cut by a flare of spiciness, coriander is a bit dominant. The orange peel is a touch bitter with a soft rind like flavour. A little touch of fruit (pear & plum), yeast and a dash of hop bitterness in the finish. The fermented wheat provides a lingering spiciness that fades slowly in the semi-dry finish.

Notes: This ale is fine just on its own though the spiciness can hold its own to anything on the bbq grill. A superb wit to be had.
