Notes / Commercial Description:
White Ale's are Belgian style beers, often refered to as "Wit" beer. Our version of this classic style is a wonderful spicy brew, infused with orange peel and coriander spices. It has a crisp refreshing flavor and a slight 'white' haze from the large percentage of wheat used in the mash.

Had this one at a local Amana Colony restaurant with lunch.

Very pale yellow body, cloudy; very thin white head although it does leave rings of foam on the glass. Light, dry grass aroma with a very faint citrus component. Taste has a delicate graininess; grapefruit and faint lemon notes. Light bodied; crisp, clean, and very dry.

A tough beer to love or hate. It's light and delicate all around, perhaps a little to much so, yet a few other sips brings out a subtle intrigue of flavor. On whole, it's fair enough if you're not looking for anything other than a lightweight, relatively dry beer.

A: The beer is very hazy light yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short bright white head that died down, leaving a patch of bubbles in the center of the glass, a collar around the edge, and a thin layer of bubbles in between.
S: Light aromas of wheat are present in the nose along with some hints of orange peels.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the orange peels are stronger and linger through the finish. Only slight hints of coriander are detectable.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is an easy drinking witbier and has some refreshing properties. It would make for a good summer beer.
