Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Poured from bomber into a standard pint glass. Then poured again. And again. Nice looking beer--cloudy and straw-colored/yellow.

Smells strongly of wheat right up front. Slight hints of citrus in the background. It's got a good nose to it--strong but not overpowering. No alcohol smell at all.

Tastes nice--it's light and acidic. There's coriander in here, and I'd know it even without the label saying so. It's not very developed though--after a few sips it's sort of one-note. A little disappointing considering the high bar Dogfish Head has set, but still good.

Mouthfeel was a bit disappointing. The beer is slightly under-carbonated and doesn't have much body. It's smooth and doesn't have any bite, but I can't give it more than an average 3.

Overall, I am thoroughly enjoying this beer. It wasn't cheap but I'd happily buy it again. It's a nice white that is easy to drink.
