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.

2.35/5  rDev -37.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Appearance: Very very pale; no yeasty cloudiness, just a light haze. Almost green in color. Not much head retention, and little to no lacing.

Aroma: Not much to see here; a little lemon, a little funk, but not much else.

Taste: A shadow of a witbier. It has a light witbier nose and finish, but not much in between. A little tartness, a fair amount of bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel: light, not much here. A little bit more carbonation than I would have expected, but that didn't translate into head retention.

Overall: I guess this a "thirst quencher". I don't get much of a flavor from it; maybe the keg this growler was poured from was old. I definitely wouldn't want to pay the normal DFH price for this in a bomber. This is, to put it diplomatically, a lot more "delicately flavored" than most of the DFH offerings. I feel like I was let down; I expect DFH to push the envelope, to go into bold new directions. Instead, they've gone bland.

Again, it's possible I got a bad sample; but I live in Delaware and bought this at a decent store. I'm glad I didn't buy it in (more expensive) bomber format, or I would have been really disappointed.

Serving type: growler

4.05/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a light lemon gold color with a small white head, which has good retention, and leaves nice lacing. The aroma has oranges, lemongrass, coriander, and wheat.

Tastes lightly sweet and easy to drink with oranges, lemongrass, coriander and wheat. Light and refreshing. Tastes great on a hot summer day like today.

Light bodied with soft carbonation. Finishes dry, and has a light orange and lemongrass aftertaste.Very nice taste for a 4.80 % abv beer. Worth trying if you get the chance.

Serving type: bottle
