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.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy yellow color. The head is one finger high, with a creamy white shade. Retention isn't much, but man does this leave behind a lot of lacing behind.

S: This is extremely doughy to me. The yeast is quite prevalent on the nose, and frankly a bit stinky. Still, I do pick up much of the advertised ingredients (coriander, lemongrass, orange, and peppercorns), if only subtly. There's just something about a lot of wits that make me think 'manure' (sadly, so does this), but it's a subjective thing not worth giving a low score to.

T: Follows the nose to an extent...except the manure, thankfully. The opening flavors are extremely yeasty: this is kind of like chewing on bread straight-up. Its finish is slightly citrusy, with only soft herbal hints. I'm really on the fence whether I like its doughy character or not.

M: Feels heavier than it should. The carbonation is solid and it finishes dryly, so at least it's not undrinkable. Still, it should have been effortless.

O: I usually never have a strong opinion on most of the DFH regulars, good or bad, and guess what? This is another DFH regular that's only okay to me. I would have felt royally gypped paying +$10 for a 750 of this, so thanks to its 6-pack availability, I can merely give it a nonchalant shrug.

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. Meh, drinkable but won't purchase again.
