Notes/Commercial Description:
A witbier bursting with good karma. Made with dried organic orange slices, fresh-cut lemongrass and a bit of coriander, this Belgian-style white beer is a great thirst quencher.

2.9/5  rDev -23.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

A: Pale, golden, with a slight opacity. Nicely carbonated - almost perfect. Good head retention in my Witbier glass.

S: You can easily smell the spicy notes, coriander, and lemon - A reviving scent.

T: Lemon and spicy/peppery at the start, but the lemon dominates the aftertaste.

M: Dry finish and decent carbonation. The mouthfeel is very light and would be refreshing if not for the dominant lemons.

D: This *should* be refreshing but the lemon notes just overpower. Sadly, it reminds me too much of furniture polish right now.

Note: I've been a HUGE fan of DFH since 2000 when I lived in DE - back in the "old" brewery where 120 min was offered in bottles of this size. They make supurb beers!

This is just one beer that doesn't quite suit my tastes right now. I would certainly recommend a bottle to try, though. I think I'll give this one another go after a round of golf in hot/humid July afternoon.

Very pleasant white ale with subtle hints of Indian spices. Slightly spicy aftertaste. Obvious citrus and lemongrass notes (as advertised on the bottle). I would consider this to be an ideal summer beer for those new to more complex beers or beers brewed with spices. It would also be a perfectly refreshing complement to very spicy Indian or Thai style food.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A pours a pale straw yellow with good clarity. Nice bright white head with good retention and stick.

S - Bread dough, lemon grass, citrus rind, yeast.

T - Yeast, banana peel, coriander. Easy drinking - light bodied wit bier. Slightly acidic.

O - Nothing overwhelming about this one. Just an easy drinking Belgian style brew.
