Massachusetts, United States

Style: Belgian Witbier

Notes / Commercial Description:
Stirring from the haze of winter, this refreshing unfiltered White Ale awakens its smooth wheat with the bright snap of spring spices. From the subtle sweetness of orange peel and plum to the peppery bite of fresh ground coriander, the blend of spices creates just the right refreshing kick to signal that spring is on its way.

On tap at Applebee’s in Totowa. Pours a golden, effervescent hue with minimal frothing. Mellow aroma replete with hints of citrus and grapefruit. Similar overall flavor profile.

Tried it out for the first time this evening. Currently on number 2. Lighter colored, but full bodied with a hint of orange and slight pepper taste. Really nice finish also. I'll definitely give this one another try.

Pours to a nice hazy golden hue with a big pillowy head. Good, smooth witbier style with mild carbonation.

I'm usually not a fan of ale's but here and there I'll find one that surprises me. This one did! Its a mild mannered beer. Nice malty taste, just the right amount of spices, very drinkable.

Maybe it's just me, but I love the taste of this beer. The right amount of spice with the hint of orange works a treat for my taste buds. Decent on tap and perfect to relax with at home in a bottle.
