Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: jgasparine on 10-17-2009

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.

A: Canary yellow body. Creamy white dense foam w sketchy persist and lace. Witbier light.

S: Extremely perfumey, vibrant, yeasty, spicy and fruity, orange citrusy. Wakeful beer.
Bright orange zest, spicy corriander, peppery, tangerine marmalade.

T: Follows smell, complex, a lot going on - too much? Powdered sugar and bready. Layers of orange zest and spice alternate with lemon, pepper, cumin, grass, coriander, with a spicy finish.

A little too sweet and fancy for my palate. Also has that delaware (it's the water that's not great - mineral aspect).

Doesnt leave my palate in a great place. I'd pass.

Very spicey for a witbier. Coriander, peppery, lemony, zingy, but not overly so. Nice and refreshing.

Great alone or with shrimp kabobs. Unusual taste but not off putting. Worth buying for the peppery flavor experience.

Good solid wit. All the mentioned falvors pull through, lemograss adds extra complexity that is really enjoyable. Peppercorn doesn't come through as much as I'd have liked. This beer would be phenomenal with curry or any other Thai or Indian food. Must try.
