Notes / Commercial Description:
Point Belgian White is a smooth refreshing and distinctive beer brewed in the tradition of Belgian Style White Ales. Our recipe boasts the finest barley and wheat malts, white wheat, rolled oats, and Noble Hallertau and Saaz hops - naturally flavored with a hint of Curacao orange peel and coriander. The result is a light-bodied beer renowned for its signature golden-white haze. Try it with an orange slice.

Appearance: Pale, hazy golden body, with faint, slow-rising carbonation, crowned by a modest, dense white head, which slowly fades away, and accompanied by a slight, show-rising carbonation.

Aroma: Coriander is very prominent in the aroma, as well as wheat, caramel, and curiously, a slight smokiness.

Taste: Opens with very strong coriander, as well as a lesser amount of wheat malt. As the taste progresses, The wheat lends a mild bitterness to the taste, followed by a moderate flush of hops at the close. Finishes with a dry, lingering hop presence;.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, very pleasant, and quite drinkable

Presentation: Packaged in a twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle with a twist-off screen, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Pours golden (not as hazy as expected) with a thin, lasting head. Some lacing sticks.

The smell is of coriander, orange peel, some bready notes and pale malt.

The taste is of coriander, orange peel, and honey-like sweetness. It has a firm pale malt backbone. Finishes with a spicy dryness with a sweet kiss.

It is smooth, with a spritzy, but not fizzy, carbonation level. Very refreshing!

It uses the spices well - forward, but not overwhelming. The malt is strong and the yeast strain is somewhat muted for the style. It is an easy-drinking beer with nice aroma and flavors.

I was surprised to find it in a winter variety pack, but it does work for something lighter in the winter. It is an enjoyable, year-round brew!
