Nice refreshing spicy wit. Great summer beer. Best I've had from this brewery so far.

Stopped by ABW for their tuesday night stand up comedy, and picked this as the first beer of the night. $4 for the pint.

Nice, hazy golden orange color with minimal white head and some lacing. I passed on the orange slice.

Smell was subdued, some orange peel in there, for sure. Taste was also pretty tame, but it is good. Some orange peel, again, pretty dry, kind of hard to describe but very refreshing and light, tasty. Not over the top or bold in any way, but a solid sessionable belgian style beer from a local brewpub. I would definately recommend this. If you haven't been to Brew Works, either Bethlehem or Allentown, do yourself a favor and go, pick up a few pints or get the sampler and enjoy.

On-tap at the brewpub, served with an orange wedge.

This, in my opinion, is ABW's most consistent beer, and possibly their best. It's a balanced and flavorful wit that's fairly true to style, but not just a Hoegaarden copycat. This one's a little bit thicker with a creamy, bready wheat flavor balanced by mellow, yet rich Belgian candi spice. This is the beer to try at either Brew Works locations. I wish I could say as much for their other Belgian options, or even any of their beers, but this one has always been a winner.

12/28...on tap in Allentown PA...pours hazy murky yellow brown. Heavy foam layer. Light wheat nose. Orange and rind flavor. A slight sour gives character. Nicely done wit.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of tangerines, somewhat sweet. Taste is of oranges and tangerines, some sweetness, a bit of wheat, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a very good session beer.
