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.

Pours beautifully. It is a great shade of toasted straw, quite cloudy, with a decently visible amount of carbonation. The initial white foamy head fades from 3 lofty fingers to a well-retained 1 1/2-finger skim. Loads of lace pillows against the sides of the glass.

Smell has great cracked, toasted grain presence and a hint of tart citrus. Not much more, but not much more needed.

Very tasty and refreshing witbier. The grains, spices and hops are blended together in the nicest balance. The grain is deliciously toasty with the slightest heartiness to it. The orange provides both sweetness and bitterness and the lemongrass adds a bit of delicate earthiness. The feel is both bright and refreshing while at the same time being creamy and mouthfilling. Finish is clean and dry with just a bit of sediment laying on the tongue.

Absolutely delicious and highly drinkable beer. Great for any season, but especially perfect now.

Pours a hazy straw yellow color with a nice two finger head which gives way to some lacing on the glass. The aroma is of citrus and lemongrass with a hint of honey as well. The taste has a nice citrus flavor along with a big lemongrass taste. There are hints of honey as well along with a wheat backbone. The mouthfeel is moderately carbonated. The drinkability is high a nice mellow flavor that is well blended on top of being an easy drink. You could easily have multiple servings of these.

Another EXCEPTIONAL offering from DFH. Had this in a pint glass served out of one of DFH's large format bottles. This poured a very very light color, with a voluminous head, remniscent of pilsner. This was light in color and body, crisp, and an absolutely refreshing beer for a 104 degree day. This is the kinda beer you can slug. No need to nurse this one. I have another bottle I can't wait to lay into. I'll definitely be getting more.
