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.

There was no head what-so-ever. The taste was great, and the look was pretty Adjunct Lager-esc, but I was pleasantly surprised on this one. Good beer from Dogfish Head, but not their best.

I'm a Wit fan so I truely enjoyed this. With smell of peppercorns and orange peel grabbing my sense I was smiling before the first taste. Which the taste is "weak" according to some of my fellow beer bros. I respect and like the taste it is a simple Wit style with the light spice and mellow yeast strain. If you want a good Wit to enjoy, buy it. If you're looking for a complex and a beer with bursting flavors, don't buy a case of this...Just a six pack to expierence it lol.

This was okay, nothing special here. Had a decent smell and taste, but with some hints of staleness and the peppercorn just does not work for me. The mouth feel was disappointing as well, kinda watery and fizzy all at once. The color was a pale brownish yellow.

Will not seek out and purchase again.
