nice summer beer from these guys, the classic orange and coriander thing going on, but its more than just white wheat on the grain front, and the beer is more clear and orange than the typical wit style is. orange tinted and heady, this is almost totally clear, with just yeast particles rather than haze. nose and taste are identical, sweet and tangy orange peel, light toasted coriander seed, and a soft but fruity belgian yeast strain. very familiar, but there is a twist. more grain heft to this, very montana in spirit i think, crystal malted barley is there in some proportion, and the beer gets just a little sweeter as a result. not enough to hurt its refreshment, but definitely beefier than the industry standard. one of the better beers from these guys I've had, i think they have a pretty good handle on a lot of styles though, and i have enjoyed most of the stuff they've done. a worthy hot weather sixer right here.

Appearance- Pours a clear apricot colour with a thin line of bubbly head.
Smell- wheat, orange, coriander, caramel
Taste- wheat, orange peel, coriander and a huge hit of caramel. A little confusing on the palate as to why this is classified as a witbier. Tastes almost like a EPA or an amber ale.
Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with light carbonation. A tad thin.
Overall- A tasty but confusing brew by Harvest Moon. Not sure if this is an off bottle or not but it seems as if the witbier base is present but tastes like an EPA or an amber ale as mentioned previously. I feel like the brewers put the wrong batch in the wrong bottle.

A: mostly clear pale yellow. Forms a fizzy white head that very quickly reduces to barely nothing. 3.5
S: light pale malts. Light lemon. Light orange. 3.0
T: very light flavor of lemon and orange. A touch of coriander. Light wheat malts. Otherwise, very mild. 3.0
M: light bodied. Heavier carbonation. Slight tangy spiciness. 3.5
O: a very simplistic wheat ale that doesn't resemble a wit in the least. However, still quite quaffable, easily approachable, and clearly brewed for the masses. 3.0

355ml bottle poured into tall pilsner glass 30/6/12
A hazy pale yellow with enough clarity to see streams of bubbles that feed a very long lasting bone white head, several partial rings of lace and still a thick foam at the bottom of the glass
S sweet orange, lemon, coriander and some dry cereal and a little hay, smells pretty good
T a little overdone with the spice but still tastes good but I preferred the smell, a little peppery even
M medium bodied with almost too much carbonation almost turning to foam in your mouth,
O decent example of the style but perhaps just a little over spiced, that's my only complaint though this one went down with ease
this one would make a great patio beer under a hot sun, not the best Wit I've had but it works well and is a decent example of the style

from a random Montana 6-mixer, a few months past its best before date
A - clear straw golden, very bubbly, short white head retained at a thin covering
S - interesting mix of wheat, sour apricot, leafy and some adjunct
T - the coriander and orange peel comes through nicely off the top, bready wheat with crisp green hop accent
M - light, crisp clean with a pleasant dry finish
O - started a little iffy but came through nicely with bright light flavours and easy drinking feel, a great summer sipper

Yo, I may might not to be the first to review this beer from a CAN, but I may be the proudest, coming as it is from a CAN! The CANQuest (TM) loves dem CANs, yo!
From da CAN: "Beltian White Ale"; "Wheat Beer Brewed with Coriander and Orange Peel"; "From the Heart of Montana"; "Brewed with Pure Madison Aquifer and Choice Montana Grain".
Yo, yinz just qualified for a place on one of my jackets! I had some patches in standby for my first review of one of your beers and tonight is the night. I got a finger of thick bone-white head white head with limited retention. Color was a very hazy lemon-yellow. Nose smelled very spicy and I was reminded of a recent convo in which an old drinking buddy copped to suddenly being into Wits. I am never going to be following in his footsteps, but to each his own, plus the musty, dry nose with hints of black pepper got me to thinking about my bias. Mouthfeel was soft, silky smooth, like a fist wrapped in a velvet glove, slowly working me back & forth to a pleasant finish. OK, I'm back. Taste had a very dry black pepper taste on the tongue and it made me reminiscent of Montana, both in terms of the exotic dancer at Papa Joe's with name, as well as my trips to our 41st state. Spicy, baby! If you ever want to drive the US Autobahn, let me know! I am excited just thinking about it. Finish was dusty, musty dry and I was suddenly behind the wheel of a Porsche Spyder, going at unreasonable speeds ... Come back, Jimmy Dean, I need your help more than ever.
