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.

Nice citrus aromas, lemongrass, coriander, pleasant grassy/green like good olive oil. A little yeasty, nicely carbonated, refreshing, and totally enjoyable. A little hazy consistent with the style, pours with a little neat white head on it. Just enough carbonation to be lively. Love the concept also - unearthing truly historic brews, science and art combined. Really just a fun brew to drink, IMHO.

This was the first craft beer beyond Blue Moon that I got my wife to try and her response as much simpler - "oooo...I like this". A rare and cherished response - victory is ours say the craft beer fans!

I just split a bottle of this with my sister. I poured mine into a snifter glass.

It was pale, opaque, yellow with a light head that faded very quickly.

Smell was of citrus and coriander with a light banana background.

Tasted was very good, very complex. Spicy notes combined with citrus and wheat to produce a pleasant taste indeed. It was really subtle and very good.

Mouthfeel was average, not too bubbly or flat. Not thick but not watery.

I liked it. Good example of the style. Cheers!
