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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: poured into a pilsner glass to a light and slightly cloudy yellow with a finger of bright white head that fades to a small mat
S: smells of wheat, corriander, lemon and a bit of orangey sweetness
T: wheat and pale malt up front with lemongrass, corriander and other spices, some orange flavor and some spicy yeast character. swallow brings nice wheatyness and a clean finish with a bit of lemon and orange
M: light with soft carbonation and very refrshing
O: a very tasty and refreshing witbier. good flavors and fairly true to style. DFH rarely disappoints and this beer is a winner.

Strong smell of lemon-orange. Mouth feel was a bit too carbonated. But taste of the lemongrass and orange peel were definitely present and added some interesting flavor. A little too yeasty also but overall I enjoyed this. Not typically a fan of this style but a very intriguing offer from Dogfish. Wouldn't buy the bottle again but would have it if it was on tap somewhere.

Appearance is a nice foggy blonde color, with a pure white and thick and foamy head.

Smell is everything a wheat beer should smell like, oranges, a hint of spices, some lemon, and a hint of fresh baked bread.

The taste is a little weak. Coriander is the flavor that dominates, but besides that it is water, and weak. So lots of coriander, and a hint of lemon and orange juice, but besides that not a whole lot going on.

Mouthfeel though is decently thick and creamy, and seems to coat well.

Overall its an easy drinking beer, nothing to write home about though.
