Notes/Commercial Description:
An American interpretation of a classic Belgian wheat ale. A hazy light golden color gives this beer its name. This light and refreshing ale is brewed with just a hint of coriander and orange zest giving way to a citrus finish.

Perhaps one of the best white ales that I have ever had if not THE best. Cloudy straw color with an average head. Some pungency of fruit in the nose. The flavor is smooth and feels nice in the mouth. Almost a syrupy quality to the mouthfeel. The finish emits a flavor that both my wife and I agree makes you think you are drinking a wine. I think its great, but will admit that its a unique enough beer I could see some folks not liking it. I gave it an A.

Had this on-tap. It's a local beer so I thought since its getting warmer why not? I'll give it a try. Nice white ale -- or I guess a witbier. Straw colored gold with a white head. Not much in the way of smell other than the orange hints. It's not an IPA so its not overpowering in that way. It had a very drinkable taste. You could have several of these. Overall, this a very drinkable local beer. I like it.

On tap at Portofinos On The Wharf in Georgetown SC for my birthday. Served in a standard pint glass. If you go request Todd, he was a fantastic waiter.

A: Standard wit. Cloudy straw with white head 2 finger that receded quickly

S: Orange and coriander.

T: Refreshing orange. Slight spice from the coriander.

M: Very nice.

D: High. Not the kind to drink a lot of because of how sweet it is, but I would not think it out of the ordinary to put a couple away with a meal with no difficulty.

Sorry for the brisk review. It was at a party so I could not take the best notes.

Appears a light, cloudy haze of light gold with a small white head that fades quickly. Tiny bits of lacing are scattered but seem to fade quickly as well.
Smell is of crisp wheat with coriander and citrus lingering.
Taste is of the same aromas with some pleasant spices that makes the taste good but there is no "wow" factor, which sort of holds this one down from being in a higher echelon.
Mouthfeel is of a medium carbonation and light brew with mild wheat and subtle citrus and spices with just a touch of hops. Very delicate and good in my opinion.
Drinkability is good. This is the choice for drinking outside in the Myrtle Beach and surrounding areas during the summer.

Appearance - a slight haze to this golden lemony beer. A standard white cap hangs around for a minute before evaporating down and holding at a thin cover.

Aroma - dusty, powdery grain. A slight whiff of sweetness. Whether that is due to the grain, hops, or something else, I can't tell.

Taste - refreshing, clean malts. Complementary flavors of orange and coriander provide some character without getting very sweet or heavy. Clean on the swallow and finish, carbonation cleansing the palate somewhat.

Mouthfeel - light but with a note of smoothness. Good crispness, well done.

Drinkability - an easy session beer found locally on my trip to Myrtle this summer.

Hazy pale straw colored with a dainty white lace.
A citrus tang touches the malty nose over a light frothy body.
Starts out a bit mild and carbed, but moves quickly to a nice wheatiness. Slight esters give it a sweetness that is similar to the aftertaste of an orange, maybe?
Finish is long and the wheat shines through to the end souring slightly as it goes.
Closer to a definite style than their usual.

Pours a clear, gold color. 134 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of hops, slight floral hops, slight pale malt, slight coriander, sweet malt, and a hint of lemon. Fits the style of a Witbier. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of hops, hint of lemon, slight pale malt, slight floral, hint of sweet malt, and a hint of coriander. Overall, good appearance, decent aroma, blend, and body.

I have been wanting to have this one for a while. Finally got it on tap at the Kickin' Chicken on James Island. I saw the beer and wondered why they called it a White Ale. There was nothing white about it, other than the head. The brew itself was actually a light amber color. I thought they had brought me the wrong brew. They told me it was the right one though. The brew's smell was quite fruity, mostly of the citrus origin. Along with that, there was the light hint of the hops. The taste was a little bit different though. I thought it had a bit more in the area of the malt area with the citrus undertones. I figured this one would be great with a slice of orange in it. All in all an ok beer. Not really a Witbeer or White Ale, but a good beer none the less.
