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.

With a low 25 IBU this brew has a high degree of drinkability especially for the hop-confused demographic ;-). Flavors for this brew are layered nicely, nothing too over powering. Very "bright" finish leaving the palate feeling clean. Great thirst quencher.

12 ounce bottle into wheat beer glass

A - pale straw, fairly clear with a teeny tiny bit of sediment, two inch white head, good retention, and lots of sticky lacing.

S - Wow the nose on this is strong with oranges and lemons.

T - Sweet citrusy malt coexists with a spicy coriander dry finish.

M - good carbonation, average thickness and a bit if a aftertaste

O - This is not my cup of tea at all, but I think it succeeds for what it tries to be. Sessionable, easy to drink, and refreshing.

16 oz. pour into a tumbler, Two Stones Pub, Wilmington, DE

A- Pale yellow in color, haze of course. Delicate white head with some speckles of lacing. Head retention isn't great.

S- Lots of lemongrass and coriander. Floral and fruity.

T- Subtle malt with big notes of the coriander and floral character. A bit spicy.

M- Light and a little snappy. Clean wet finish. A bit of spice.

O- This is reminiscent of sunscreen, but in a good way. It tastes like summer. Nice and light. Would be refreshing on the beach. Good thing this is in six packs now.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Appearance - Light, transparent yellow gold color. Pours with a light, foamy white head.
Smell - Very little smell, slight sent of coriander/peppercorns
Taste - Light and thin taste. It is slightly bitter, not very sweet at all, not very complex.
Mouthfeel - Light and thin, refreshing feel. The carbonation is perky but not sharp.
Overall - I might be a little harsh on this beer because it's far outside of the kind I normally like to drink. The taste is not very complex and there isn't a really any hops or malt taste. It doesn't feel very balanced to me; just a bit spicy.
