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.

I've never been disappointed with a DFH beer, and I'm not here, but I don't have much to talk up about this beer either. It is a witbier, its made to style, its refreshing; however, I've come to expect a lot from DFH. I guess I was a little let down that it was just a witbier, there wasn't that layered complexity or interesting ingredient that shined through. Maybe I'm being too hard, it is beer and its very drinkable.

Poured a nice sunny hazy gold with a fizzy white head. There was fair head retention with lasting lacing around the glass. The aroma had lemongrass, citrus and yeast. The flavor was similar to aroma with lemon and yeast, some malt sweetness that complimented the creamy mouthfeel and slight alcohol presence.

Poured lemony yellow with not much head. Looks delicious. Grains with soft citrus and floral in the nose. Almost peppery taste with nice carbonation. Hoppy background with a great mouthfeel. Very nice refreshing beer. Never been disappointed by a dfh except for black and blue.

Bottled in 2011. Doesn't appear to be more specific than that.

Beer pours cloudy gold, with a moderately sized white head. Fair bit of lacing. Moderate retention.

Nose contains coriander, lemon and other citrus (orange), lemongrass, a bit of a soapy scent and characteristic wheat scents. The lemongrass is a nice touch to what is otherwise a typical wit smell.

Taste has orange, lemon, coriander, white pepper, lemongrass, and the taste of wheat malt that I cannot describe any other way but is well known. The soapy scent from the nose is in the flavour as well - this is not unpleasant, just the closest description I have for what I am tasting.

High carbonation level, in keeping with the style. A little bit irritating. Very crisp. Medium bodied. Creamy.

Overall, quite an enjoyable witbier. Lemongrass adds but does not overshadow the standard wit flavours. Nice beer.

A 10 dollar bottle of beer better impress me but most Dogfish Heads do. Poured this sucker into the glass it was a light almost hay color and had a little bit of sediments. The aroma the label says it best you smell the floral and citrus aromas. You can taste a slight carameliness to it and it goes down super smooth. It is very easy to drink and is very light which is non typical for Dogfish Head. Another inspirational brew nevertheless. Try it its worth it to spend more when it counts.
