Notes/Commercial Description:
An ode to our Dutch heritage, Oranje Weisse is a premium, unfiltered white beer. Predominantly brewed with un-malted wheat which gives it a hazy appearance we've also added two types of orange peel, some coriander, and a touch of anise. The result is a unique flavour combination of citrus and light spice. Our signature yeast reveals a complex aroma and slight tartness on the palate. We recommend serving with a slice of orange on the side of the glass to enhance this refreshing seasonal brew.

A: Honey yellow cloudy, some carbonation, huge off white yellowish head.

S: Offal, bubble gum, coriander, dry naval orange, Belgian yeast, light smokiness.

T: Light and refreshing light citrus orange again it’s a dry naval orange type, some bubble gum, plastic or wax paper, coriander, light smokiness, not getting the same Belgian yeast I got on the nose.

M: Light body, medium low carbonation, dry finish.

O: The bottle is bright orange and impressive, the taste is mediocre, certainly not this brewery's best brew but light and summery and refreshing.

500ml bottle, painted the same bright orange hue as that of the Dutch national team supporters. First appearance for this brewery in Alberta, I believe.

This beer pours a hazy medium golden yellow colour, with two fingers of puffy, tightly foamy, and even a bit creamy bone-white head, which leaves a decent swath of swollen rain cloud lace around the glass as it very slowly fades away.

It smells of neutered orange peel, somewhat astringent coriander, zippy wheat grain, earthy yeast, and some rather understated leafy, musty hops. The taste is more malt-forward, with the pale and wheaty graininess leading off, followed closely by the peppy, spicy coriander, middling orange pith, vegetal yeast, and faint earthy, weedy hops.

The carbonation is fairly laid back, and just mostly frothy, the body medium-light in weight, and kind of hollow in its generic smoothness. It finishes barely off-dry, the graininess shedding the majority of its already limited sweetness, while the spice and yeast pull things in the opposite direction.

An adequate witbier, the standard extra ingredients definitely making themselves known. However, the hovering edginess kind of takes a fair bit of the air out of it all. Enjoyable to a point, but after the one, I'm kind of done.
