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.

One finger of head. A cloudy banana colored body.
Smell of orange, honey, lemon and coriander. Nice and balanced.
Taste is mild overall. Some sweetness with a good lemon bitterness. Good, but mild.
Smooth texture, low carbonation and light body.
Tasty and interesting, but not really a daily (or monthly) drinker for me.

Poured into a pint glass at 40 degrees.

Appearance: A one finger head that is billowy, fluffy, and creamy. The head is white in color with fair retention. The color of beer a pale yellow with some really light yellow hues. The clarity of the beer is cloudy, probably from yeast.

Nose: The grain notes are pushing past the lemon, orange, and grass notes. Other aromas in the beer is honey, vanilla, coriander, herbal, pepper, and floral esters.

Taste: The beer grain note is lightly toasted, and grassy. The flavors in the beer is lemon, orange, honey, vanilla, coriander, herbal, peppers and floral esters. The lemon grass pops out at the very end, letting you know it is in the beer.

Mouth feel of the beer is carbonated, slightly astringent, and crisp.

Overall: The body of the beer is medium light and the finish is medium. This beer has lots of flavor, but to me, seems as if the beer is discombobulated in taste. Flavors are here and there, lacking uniformity. Solid beer nonetheless.

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!
