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.

Lemon yellow in color, this Dogfish Head beer sports a white- colored head of foam and a nose of fruit, spice, coriander, lemongrass, and yeast. The body of the beer is cloudy and one can visibly see suspended particulates. Belgian characteristics are evident from the beginning and they are very enticing.

With the taste, this beer follows the nose. It features flavors of lightly breaded malt, wheat, citrus, banana, coriander, yeast, and light spice. The flavors seem to be married together quite nicely and the balance is good for a witbier style.

This beer is crisp and nicely carbonated with a good flavor overall for its style. The spice is good, but not overdone, and the fruits, yeast, and wheat each contributes to the enjoyment of the beer in their own way. I liked it more as I sipped more and ended by bottle wishing I had another. I’m not always in the mood for witbier, but when I am, I will keep this Dogfish brew in mind.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.
