Pours a cloudy, whitish-gold hue with a one-finger head into my glass. I wonder if this is the same recipe as their Wit?

A mix of clove and coriander stands out in the nose. Nice and light.

Robust with lots of clove, coriander and a slight touch of pepper. Crisper than their standard Wit recipe.

Finishes clean with only a trace of clove.

A very nice interpretation of the witbier. It's cleaner than their traditional Wit recipe.

Long Trail "Mostly Cloudy" Unfiltered Belgian White
12 oz. brown glass bottle, coded "03/18/14 3504 B(?) - almost 5 mos. old
$7.99/six pack @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

While I object to Long Trail's use of the term "Belgian" on their label (as it's clearly not from Belgium), I can hardly complain about the beer itself. It follows the witbier style closely, and displays bright and fresh aromatics and flavors. The nose is full of soft coriander and orange peel, and the flavor is gently malty and just slightly tart with notes of orange, lemon, and some more dusty coriander. The bitterness is kept well in-check, and along with the light note of subtle tartness and very delicate spiciness it's really well-balanced. Some wheat character is apparent in the maltiness, especially across the middle; and there's a subtle touch of earthiness in the finish that's probably coming from a combination of wheat, yeasty chalkiness, dull coriander, and leafy and grassy hops. This is a style that many brewers over-do in one way or another (too much malt, too much spice, too much yeast character, too much hop flavor - or all of the above!) but that's not the case here. It's lively and bright, and remarkably refreshing, but also complex enough that you don't get bored with it.
Kudos to Long Trail for staying focused because sometimes balance is everything!

12 fl. oz bottled on 02/26/14. Sampled on March 21, 2014 so it is pretty fresh.

It pours lemon yellow with a modest fizzy white head and as the name declares - mostly cloudy. Active carbonation.

That aroma is juicy orange, soft wheat, biscuit malts, and mild spice. It has the characteristics I expect in a witbier.

The body is light and refreshing.

Even though I get orange peel and coriander on the nose, its punchiness is more forward in the flavor along with a bready and sweet character. Dry and spicy finish.

3.76/5  rDev +9.9%

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a very light and slightly cloudy yellow color, with a thin white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains lemon, wheat, mild Belgian yeast, light caramelized malts, some spice and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with mildly sweet flavors of lemon and other citrus fruits followed by some breadiness from Belgian yeast and a hearty but not too heavy malt character. The hops presence is very mild but expected for this kind of beer and it’s enough to create a good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly tart.

M: Crisp and smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a beer to drink for a long time if you’re in the mood for the style.
