White Rascal pours a medium straw yellow with a sub-par head. Decent lacing and medium carbonation coming up the sides of the glass.

The aroma is sweet and citrusy, with the spices coming through a touch and a decent yeast presence.

The taste is what you would expect from any belgian white. The orange and coriander come out up front, pairing with the wheat backbone to make a sweet, zesty flavor, citrusy flavor.

The mouthfeel is also what you'd expect. Highly carbonated with a big fizz on the tongue. Very crisp and very smooth.

Overall, this beer is tasty, zesty, and crisp, a very good representation of the style.

Freshness Date: None

A: Pale yellow and turbid with a foamy, clean white foam of small bubbles that fades to a cling on the glass.

S: Base of hay and crackers with predominant spice and citrus components.

T: Moderate palate featuring a foundation of cracker, grain, and hay maltiness with highlights of coriander, pepper, and citrus zest. There are also subtle notes of yeasty esters lending a tinge of crisp fruitiness.

M: Thin, light, and sporting moderate carbonation; this brew has a nice refreshing feel.

O: A solid beer that is both subtle and flavorful. Perfect for the warm summer days ahead.

12 oz. can poured into a mini snifter.

Appearance - Slight haze to a yellow body. Some lacing. Good retention. Thin foam on the surface.

Smell - Lots of spice. Clove and such. Some wheat and a touch of citrus. Like lemongrass.

Taste - Some Belgian character comes through. Wheat. Citrusy. Spice in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Very drinkable, but thin. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Wits aren't my thing, but this had enough interesting flavors to keep me... well, interested.
