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.

A light, dry, and slightly tart beer that packs in a good deal of character. Off the nose it's this beer shows its colors as a Belgium Witt with coriander, peppercorn, a mellow but all too apparent spiciness, and some grassier. These flavors carry into the palate where the more vegetal flavors of the bunch stand out. Thats not to say it's not followed by hints of orange, lemongrass, and dried flowers. Overall this beer manages to present itself in such a pleasant manner the entire way through to the finish.

Pouring into my tulip I get a golden straw colored beer with a frothy or billowy head. The head itself is small and lingers not. Small bits of lacing are left behind. Long threads of carbonation cascade to the top but not many.
In the aroma I'm getting your basic wit beer. Loads of spicy coriander and some mild wheat malts. I don't detect any lemongrass or peppercorns.
It drinks smooth and soft on the palate with some grainy malts being most of the flavor.
The nose was big and spicy and yeasty though one dimensional and doesn't carry well into the taste.
Smooth on the palate but not very flavorful.
Witbers are hit or miss mostly I think, it must be hard to balance those big flavors.
Give me a good wit and let me dump a lemon slice in my self. Personally I like this beer but like most wits/ tripels to much coriander spices.

Clear straw colored, with an orangey white thin head that settles out quickly. Aroma of yeast and clove. Flavor initially fairly matches the nose, but slight lemony notes emerge, and a peppery bite works its way into the finish. Mouthfeel is crisp and dry, but a bit talcy as well.
