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.

Gift from a friend. Thanks Nic!
Pours pale golden even straw coloured. Hazy with some big floaters... Nice classic witbier look. Thin white head disapearing too quickly. Carbonnation seems low.
N: Very very nice! Coriander dominates strongly, wet grass, faint lemon. Something sweet in the scent that I have trouble sorting out, peach?
M: Carbonation is surprisingly high. Fizzy on tongue. Bitterness is very low, almost absent or counter balance with the malt. Light bodied.
T: Matches the nose. Strong coriander taste upfront. spices as in a classic witbier. Lemon notes and wheat.

Overall: A good brew from DFH, but a little bit highly priced (10$/750ml). Highly drinkable. Perfect for summer days.

Dogfish Head

Pours a pale white/straw color. A careful pour still yields a decent amount of sediment. Aromas of hay, citrus, grass and wheat are dominant. In the taste, much like a standard wit, wheat, lemon, twang of lemon grass, citrus, coriander and pepper. Very light. The mouthfeel is extrememly light bodied, thin, and watery. Overall, interesting and glad to try. Would say it would be great on a hot summer day, but I found it a bit too over spiced to be quenching, and too watery to hold the spices at bay. Average.

Poured from a 2011 bottle into a Dogfish Head signature glass.

A: Pours light amber with a very light head. Not much in terms of lacing. Lots of sediment floating around, giving a very cloudy appearance.

S: Light on smell, but matches well with the taste. Sweet, light orange hints with nice spice to accompany.

T: Classic witbier taste up front, followed by lemon and spices that work really well with this beer. Highly drinkable, great strong flavors for such a "light" beer. Perfect spring or summer flavor, but unique notes, in typical DFH fashion.

M: Drinks very light, with moderate carbonation that really brings out the lemon notes. Very good.

O: This is a really good witbier. I love the spice and lemon/orange balance - definitely a beer that I'll be getting again.
