This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Our Belgian White Ale is modeled after the original Belgian Witbiers brewed in monasteries during the early 14th century. The soft notes of citrus and spice are topped with a light, fluffy head that finishes clean and crisp. This fresh and natural ale is our summer seasonal brew, perfect for lounging lake-side or celebrating trail’s end…ENJOY!

12 oz brown bottle - Served in a Sam Adams fluted glass.
It' got the cloudy Witbier off-yellow color, but the head fades rather quickly.
The aroma is subdued for the style, with not much in the way of citrus or spiciness. A little lime smell. A bit of malt. Not much else.
The flavor department is much the same.
I'm afraid that the brewers were trying to be too careful not to go crazy with the spiciness and the edgy citrus and orange flavors, but in doing so they have missed the point of the Witbier.
But all that aside, I like this beer as palette cleanser. It's sort of a nice beer to keep on hand for newbies to the style as an entry level Belgian White.

look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured the contents of the bottle into my drinking contraption. Cute bear that I named Jake sitting under a tree for the bottle art.

A: ugly looking beer. Almost clear no lacing no head and yellow colored... Gives mental images of something else.

S: smells of orange and grain some lemon

T: orange, very spicy, lemon

M: light bodied a bit watery

O: refreshing and I'd reach for this before a blue moon or hoegaarden. Decent summer drink
