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.

Tap at tavern in the square Northborough

Decent fizzy head fades at med pace, nice layered lacing, hazy golden straw.

Nose is mix of tart lemon sourness and coriander like spices, salt I think, wheat, little straw grain, cereal, dried oranges.

Taste brings more tart lemon, big sour flavor with died oranges and lots of tart bitter rind. Light grainy wheat, straw, lemongrass, floral field grass like, some coriander, weird bitterness on the back end. Finish brings more tart lemons and orange rind, bitterness and tartness linger with a little coriander.

Mouth is lighter bod, decent carb, no nice wheat creaminess.

Overall eh, wish the base wheat beer was there, but lemongrass and oranges are interesting.

There was no head what-so-ever. The taste was great, and the look was pretty Adjunct Lager-esc, but I was pleasantly surprised on this one. Good beer from Dogfish Head, but not their best.
