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.

A hazy white-gold look, chunky bits float about, a tall-pure white, light and fluffy foam cap.

A lemmon-zesty yeastie aroma, tangy, dry wheat with herbs and spices. Sweet citrus and crispy malt.

A really nice complexity of yeast, tangy earth, sour and dry wheat, citric notes, lemmon zest, but very clean and refreshing, light herbal feel.

not huge complexity with a bunch of strange and unique flavor's that I didn't really harmonize all that well, but interesting for sure.

Pours a cloudy lemony color with a 3 finger white head. I looks like thick lemonade, or a lemony tropical drink. Light lacing.

Toasty grain and doughy yeast on the nose with light lemon.

Lightly sweet malt upfront, but primarily tart with lemony spice. The citrus/tart wheat/ coriander combo occasionally gives the impression of lemongrass.

Medium-bodied, slightly drying and peppery.

Perhaps I'm drinking this a bit past it's season, but it's still very refreshing. This would be a great summer beer.
