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.

Bottle: Poured a dirty yellow color ale with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of coriander and solid wheat malt with just the right amount of lemongrass is very enticing. Taste is a great mix between some coriander and slightly sweet wheat malt with good notes of lemongrass which really works well into the mix. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Really enjoyed this one with great amount of wheat malt and lemongrass bringing something unique to this mix.

A: Pours a cloudy light orange color with a nice two finger white head.

S: Lita of wheat and coriander here. Maybe a touch of lemongrass in the background with some orange.

T: A good amount of orange and coriander with a nice light flavor profile. Some ginger and lemongrass as well. Definitely is under carbonated. Just a hint of carbonation would do this beer wonders.

Pours a cloudy pale orange amber. Thin fine white head with little lacing. Aroma is sweet, wheaty with a hint of spice. Taste is light wheat, citrus and multiple spices. A distinct floral taste/aroma; almost too much, but works out fine. My first reaction was "whoa, this is different!". Medium bodied. This is a quite original, light wheat beer that is very refreshing. I'm impressed and will get this every time it is released. Great label too. An unusual white particulate residue at the bottom of the glass.

A - Clear straw, stark white head, lots of cling lace.

S - Light spices and malt.

T - The spices become much more apparent in taste. Coriander and lemongrass are very noticeable. Malt in middle, and spicy finish.

M - Light bodied, good carb, good balance.

D - Not my favorite, but an interesting beer!

On tap at Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach, CA.

Pours a slightly murky light yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, yeast, and some slight spice aromas. Taste is much the same with a very mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is light, refreshing, and easy to drink.

Pleasant but extremely light-bodied Wit-like beer. Pale, hazy grayish golden in color. Modest foam in the glass, and spritzy mouthfeel.

Light flavors with just a touch of orange. Not much evidence of the lemongrass supposed to be in the brew, but that's probably a good thing. More of a seltzer water taste. Light bit of malt sweetness is the best feature-- sort of a watery Hefeweizen flavor.

Overall it's pretty anemic, though inoffensive in flavor. What's offensive is the price of a bottle.
