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.

A: This beer pours a very cloudy yellow body with a thin white head that quickly fades to nothing.

S: I am getting a nice strong scent of sweet fruitiness, some wheat and a bit of funky yeast. The coriander also sticks out too.

T: Like the smell, I get a strong fruity flavor that seems to linger a long time. I also get a little bit of a yeast flavor and a bit of wheat. I love the coriander flavor that gives it a great summer type beer feel to it.

M: This beer goes down with ease and doesnt disappoint with a nice semi-full body. There is a nice bit of crispness on the tip of the tongue and as the beer goes down my throat.

O: This is a very solid beer from Dogfish Head and would be perfect on a hot day during the summer. Easy to drink, low alcohol and very tasty.

[Suggested Glassware: Weizen Glass]

The pour was a cloudy medium yellow with a large (2-3 finger) white pillowy head that had great retention and excellent sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of a light hay malt and a skunky yeast with notes of citrus (orange), lemon grass and a bit of coriander.

The taste was light with a strong wheat presence and a touch of lemon grass throughout, with a light note of citrus and a mild spiciness towards the finish. The flavor lasted only a short while with a nice citrus yeasty taste left to linger on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a solid medium carbonation.

Overall this brew was a pretty basic Witbier. Tasty, refreshing and easy to drink, most definitely worth having a few...
