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.

On-tap at Prime 16 into a 40cl Allagash goblet.

A: Appropriately opaque pale orange body topped by a finger of dense, creamy ecru head. Great retention, solid lace. Perfect looking Witbier, and the proper glassware really seals the deal.

S: Citrus really stands out, with orange peel leading the way and lemon backing it up. Some cleanly tart wheat malt underlies the bright fruit. Very nice, but a touch subdued.

T: Spicier and maltier than the nose, with the citrus moved to a supporting role. Quite balanced, with an exceedingly clean finish - almost too clean, as the flavors are nice enough that I'd rather they stick around better. Still, nothing short of excellent.

M: Fairly light, quite frothy. Solid.

O: This might be my favorite Witbier out there - it doesn't go overboard with the adjuncts, but instead presents the full range of classic flavors in a balanced, hugely refreshing package. Dependably great.
