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.

Delicious- a flavorful witbier, that somehow makes all of the ingredients work. You can even get a hint of the peppercorn. Such a great representation of the style. Makes Blue Moon look like crap!

Very cloudy light with lots of carbonation.

Nice refreshing fragrant citrus scent with the lemongrass and coriander a faint background smell.

Light, tart bitterness, you taste what you would expect from the label, but this combination didn't work as well as I thought it would, although it was still drinkable for sure.

Very carbonated, really too much for me, and it kind of consumes most of your mouth.

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.
