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.

This brew pours a cloudy straw color with a small white, fluffy, creamy looking head with strong carbonation.

The smell is wheat, coriander, citrus and other spices with a light pepper smell being the most dominant. There is also a biscuty, cracker smell.

The taste is sweet and citrus like. There is a crisp, lager like cleanness followed by a dryness. There is also a light bready taste.

The mouthfeel is dry, on the thin side, which is normal for this style. There is a dry aftertaste left in the mouth after swallowing.

Overall this is a decent, lightly spiced wheat beer. It is definitely worth trying. If the spices were a bit more prominent this would be an even better beer.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a bright and hazy yellowish straw orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Solid two fingers of white head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of lacing.

Smell: A fruity and spicy wheat driven aroma with big hints of citrus and coriander. Belgian yeast with some hints of coriander and white pepper. Wheat and pale malt with hints of grains, straw, cracker, and biscuit. Big citrus fruit presence with hints of orange, lemon, and pineapple. Subtle earthy hop hints of grass. A pretty solid wheat beer aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a spicy and fruity wheat driven taste with big notes of citrus fruit and coriander spice. Belgian yeast along with notes of coriander and white pepper spicing. Bready wheat and pale malt with notes of straw, grains, cracker, and biscuit. Good taste of juicy citrus fruit with notes of oranges, lemon, and pineapple. Background notes of earthy hops with some grass. A pretty solid witbier taste.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Crisp, clean, juicy, and smooth.

Overall: A very good take on a Belgian style Witbier. Good notes of citrus and coriander.

A - Cloudy yellow gold with a lot of carbonation feeding into the minimal white head.

S - Orange malt with lemon.

T - Lots of spice at the front with some sweet orange wheat in the middle followed by a flowery end.

M - Crisp feel with lots of carbonation and spiciness. Almost too spicy.

O - A crisp refreshing white brew with extra bits other flavours to keep you interested.

poureed from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass. Bottled on 2/20/14, so 2 1/2 months old

Looking very nice in the tulip. A cloudy yellow, lots of carbonattion up the side of the glass. Bright white slightly creamy head which maintaine dthroughtout. Decent lacing.

Could not get anything on the nose. Had the wife check it out, only slight orange smell

Taste is very subtle on this. Some faint citrus. I does have a very nice flavor, the kind you get from white white ales, but nothing specific jumps out.

Mouth is somewhere between light and medium. Aftertaste remains on roof of mouth and side of tongue for some time. Not unpleasant at all.

I like this beer, like the taste. Just can't seem to put into words why.
