A: Pours with a good amount of cloudy/haziness. A pale straw yellow color. Two fingers of white head forms with good retention and lace.
S: Very fragrant. Wheat, coriander and orange zest up front, but the hops quickly take over. Spicy, earthy hops with more citrus aromas and very perfume like.
T: Orange zest, coriander, and loads of citrus hops. Spicy and earthy. With the right amount of husky wheat. Really well balanced and very enjoyable.
M/D: A light body that is very effervescent, crisp and dry. Smooth at the same time and very refreshing. So easy to drink. All day with this one.

You certainly get the Wit up front, but it is much more IPA overall. I think I like this more than Chainbreaker, which is saying something. Highly recommended. (752 characters)

This is by far the best beer I have ever tasted. Real Ale Brewing Co. is definitely coming up in the beer work and I believe they are here to stay. White has all the amazing taste and mouthfeel of an IPA with absolutely none of the bitterness. It has a drinkablility factor that is through the roof! It goes down smooth as silk and each sip tastes better than the last! I look forward to enjoying this beer again and again and again! (434 characters)

Pours out a cloudy gold with a moderate sized head. Aroma has some Belgian yeast and light spiciness with a crackery grain backbone. Hops are the dominant smell here: tropical fruit and alliums. Flavor is lightly malty with a touch of grain. Yeasty spiciness mixes with some citrus and tropical hop flavor. Finishes dry and tart. Body is light, crisp, and effervescent. This is extremely refreshing. A flavorful take on a white beer. (433 characters)

12 oz can pours a well-hazed straw color with a large, stiff cap of white head. Very nice retention and frothy lace.

Pretty standard wit nose - coriander, lemons, cloves and tangy wheat. Id say the lemon aromas seem sharper on this than your average witbier.

Taste is pretty tame as far as the spices are concerned. The coriander is especially light. Yeast is not overly phenolic either. The crisp wheat and bubble-gummy yeast are the main flavors with an accompanying lemon zest. A worthy local wit option and one of my favorite styles to crush in the summer. (562 characters)

This one pours a a very cloudy golden color with a rich white head that settles slowly with abundant lacing down the glass.

The nose is spiced malt with fructose undertones of apple, citrus and vanilla.

The taste is a classic white Belgian married with a taste of Texas with nice hopping that is strong for a Belgian anything that blends super well with the malt, citrus and spice that makes Belgians so damn good. A great marriage of styles here.

The mouthfeel is rich and just right.

Overall an exceptional Belgian White from Texas. Drink this beer. (555 characters)
