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!

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

Poured from the bottle into a Hoegaarden glass.

A real nice melon and lemon yellow like body. Hints of deep orange capping with a sudsy thin but large bleach white head. Vitually no retention at all but shampoo big and settles to a thin puck.

Large smell of orange zest and fresh squeezed juice. Good hint of grass and coriander and herbality to match. Pretty good so far.

Palate hits with a mild grainy character and some light bodied feel. Juicy quality somewhat but a little bit of wetness that doesn't carry the flavors so much. Some citrus pleasure and malt grain but very fleeting. Slightly bitter and minor medicinal finish, but clean and refreshing.

Overall not a bad witbier, you could do a lot worse.

maybe not the most elegant or traditionally perfect example of the style here, but this is just stupidly underrated here on BA. its one of the most enjoyable long trail brews in the summer, and certainly a winner while grilling all day. cloudy and real pale on the pour, large and lasting white head. a nose of a little too much orange, and an herbal yeasty summery brightness. a little soapy flavor in the taste, but its cut by a great citric acidity and clean wheat malt flavor. cut grass hop aromatics and fruity orange on the finish. its clean and uplifting in feel, its best feature. carbonation is way up, but its not rocky like a soda, its smooth as can be, just lovely and refreshing. almost a shandy in that sense, its refreshment value is supreme. lighter body and abv makes it an all day session beer. I have spent many a summer days putting back a twelve pack of this and grilling up my ribs. this deserves a little more contextual love.
