Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
An ode to our Dutch heritage, Oranje Weisse is a premium, unfiltered white beer. Predominantly brewed with un-malted wheat which gives it a hazy appearance we've also added two types of orange peel, some coriander, and a touch of anise. The result is a unique flavour combination of citrus and light spice. Our signature yeast reveals a complex aroma and slight tartness on the palate. We recommend serving with a slice of orange on the side of the glass to enhance this refreshing seasonal brew.

Purchased at the LCBO for around the $3.00 mark or so for a 473ml can. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass.

A- Opens well and pours a 1" high white head the films out quick though. Nice light Hoegaarden color to it. Almost translucent. Light gold color and unfiltered to a degree.

S- Coriander, Light malt undertones.

T- Very similar to a Hoegaarden and great try guys!!

M- Good and dry.

O- I like this one. It's a local home brew good well. Suggest you buy up!

Food Pairing

This wonderful brew goes well with...... The beach, a pile of these, some hot dogs, hamburgers, salads galore and DDs.

Enjoy

Look: I poured a can of this beer into a 16-ounces Cervoise glass. Expect a full-bodied straw-coloured beer. It is not transparent. Unfortunately, the two-finger head had quite a lot of bubbles and receded into a small coat somewhere between the third and fifth minute of my tasting. Other than that, the body is nice.

Smell: Nice nose of orange combined with a little bit of citrus.

Taste: The front end closely matches the taste of orange zests, which doesn't take a back seat to the notes of citrus. As the beer moves to the end, it shifts from slight hints of banana to those of both coriander and anise. The latter adds a subtle, but not harrassing, sweetness to the hops.

Feel: It has the slight acidity of a citrus. Moreover, because of its low ABV, it was breweed to feel like a refreshing beer for summer.

Overall: Amsterdam Brewery's Oranje Weiss is a great rendition of a Belgian-style wheat beer. It strikes the right balance between fruitiness and spiciness. I would gladly recommend this seasonal beer.

Serving Type: 500 mL Bottle

A- Pours a hazy light straw colour with a 1 1/2 finger white head. Fairly lackluster when compared to other witbiers.

S- Obviously lots of orange in the nose (hence the name) but it's more of a lingering background note. Nice spiciness as well as some Belgian yeast action.

T- Follows the nose well with the exception of a bubblegum note on the finish. Nice.

M- Light body with a lively medium carbonation. Refreshing brew.

O- Not a top notch Witbier but a pretty good one at that. Light and refreshing.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Hazy straw, almost golden color. Weak 2 finger head lasting around 2 minutes with average legs but strong bubble activity.

Aromas and flavors of sweet citrus, a bit orangey, smoky grains and herbal spices. Great authentic subtle orange taste that is not too intense but faintly vinous.

Light body with prickly carbonation. Short and but well intensified and balanced finish, leaving a pleasant slightly spicy mouth coat at the end.

Overall : Good craft being very flavorful with some good freshness and intensity.
