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.

Pale almost ashy yellow, like they turned the saturation down on the colour wheel. Kind of the colour of a white wine... Barely even anything of watery/bubbly white head. I’m not getting much on the aroma either: almost smells like a grape must, though maybe just because now I have white wine on the mind. I suppose it’s probably the subtle lemongrass that I’m picking up with some of the body of the peppercorn, but not the edge. Again, not getting any of the advertised orange, but more a muted grassy fruit twinge, again likely the lemongrass taking the forefront. Don’t notice any pepper dash here, and only a vague bready note in the distance and a faint Belgian yeast at the finish, but that’s about it. Some might describe it as subtle, I am more inclined to be a little less forgiving and just say there’s not really that much going on. Surprisingly decent medium body, and a bit of a dry finish. I mean... it IS a beautiful sunny afternoon, which really seems to be the perfect venue for this beer. Though I feel like I should be in an airy white tent with cucumber sandwiches. Nope, just covered in insulation and watching the forest...

Subtle notes of orange and coriander. Great on a crisp day. Not heavy or overly hoppy, closer to a session. Nice floral and spiced notes on the nose, creamy and hazy color add to a nice pour.
