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.

Went to Dogfish Head brewery to taste test. Brought my growlers along and this one got selected based on its smooth flavor for a Belgian Wit. I loved the color, taste and smoothness and it kept me coming back for more. I highly recommend this beer even though I tend to side on the IPA hopheads side. Enjoy !

Poured from a bottle (dated 6/17/14) into a SA Perfect Pint glass. Appears a very light, clear yellow. There is a decent white head, that doesn't stick around forever, and leaves little lacing.

The nose is full of spices, wheat and touches of lemon. Not overpowering, but pleasant. The taste is very light and refreshing. Loads of pepper and coriander, along with lemon and other citrus. The finish is dry, and makes you go back for more.

Mouthfeel is light, full of carbonation, and dry. The carbonation is very high, as expected, and this is right where it should be. Overall, this is a very refreshing beer that works great on a hot day. Nothing blows me away, and it is fairly conservative.
