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.

Pours a hazy yellow with very little head. The smell is full of great earthy tones from the herbs, specifically the coriander as well as a bread scent coming through. The taste was very nice with a lot of layers of flavor coming first from the hops and then the spice, with a toasted finish made for a highly refreshing beer.

From the 12oz. bottle ito a pint glass.
Poured a cloudy straw color with very little head and a little spotty lacing.
The aroma is lemon and coriander and a hint of earthy funk.
The taste is delicious. Lots of citrus on the tongue with a bit of spice and just a light, finishing bitter.
Mouthfeel is fairly light and bubbly.
Overall, a tasty and refreshing beverage.

I got to try this on tap at Quencher's Saloon in Chicago. Served in a 10 0z. brandy snifter for $6.

The beer poured a cloudy golden/'yellow color with a small 1/2 finger white head that never completely went away. Nice lacing.

The beer smelled citrusy along with the obligatory coriander spice found in most wits.

It was mostly lemon flavored, although not overpoweringly so. Orange and coriander were also present as was some Belgian style yeast and enough malt to make it slightly sweet. It also had a surprising bitter finish.

Smooth and light with medium carbonation.

It didn't wow me over like most Dogfish Head products, but it was still a decent summer thirst quencher.
