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.

Lemon yellow in color, this Dogfish Head beer sports a white- colored head of foam and a nose of fruit, spice, coriander, lemongrass, and yeast. The body of the beer is cloudy and one can visibly see suspended particulates. Belgian characteristics are evident from the beginning and they are very enticing.

With the taste, this beer follows the nose. It features flavors of lightly breaded malt, wheat, citrus, banana, coriander, yeast, and light spice. The flavors seem to be married together quite nicely and the balance is good for a witbier style.

This beer is crisp and nicely carbonated with a good flavor overall for its style. The spice is good, but not overdone, and the fruits, yeast, and wheat each contributes to the enjoyment of the beer in their own way. I liked it more as I sipped more and ended by bottle wishing I had another. I’m not always in the mood for witbier, but when I am, I will keep this Dogfish brew in mind.

Pours a cloudy yellow, with a major head of white suds. Loopy, attractive lattice-like lace.

Nose is spice and citrus -- very much in line with a traditional Belgian witbier.

Taste is light and appropriately approachable. There's a well-balanced spice character that plays well alongside a refreshing citrus tone. Nothing here is over-the-top or experimental, as most of Dogfish brews are. Light and refreshing, this one's solid and enjoyable nonetheless.
