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.

12 oz bottle poured into a lager glass.

A - Hazy lemonade. Two inch head dissipates rather quickly but keeps a foamy layer on top throughout. Nice lacing.

S - Lemongrass, oranges, and some wheat.

T - Lemongrass slightly dominates with juicy orange and coriander. Peppercorn at the end is a stroke of genius.

M - Medium light

O - This is my first stab at a Dogfish brew and am quite impressed. Highly drinkable and refreshing. Great session beer. If you can find it, buy it!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours a clear lemonstraw color with a meringue-like head that leaves a number of strands

Smell: Floral tones of lemongrass and orange, with hints of wheat bread and coriander

Taste: Wheat bread, up front, laying the foundation; the orange, lemongrass and coriander flavors build into the middle, with the peppercorn bringing a touch of heat, in the middle; nicely balanced, into the finish, with all of the flavors blending together

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation; a touch of pucker

Overall: I was prepared to be underwhelmed as I often am by many of the beers in the Dogfish lineup but this one is right up there with Palo Santo Marron among my favorites; the perfect summer beer, with plenty of flavor and a lovely floral aspect
