Date tasted: June 16, 2013... Glassware: willibecker... Occasion: Father's Day #6--spending it at the brew pub at the suggestion of my wife--what could be better?... Appearance: sunshine orange juice hue with a cloudy, opaque body--appropriately garniushed with an orange slice... Aroma: rather stoic for a wheat/wit; not much beyond some banana and orange... Palate: smooth, drinkable and not too complex--not a bad attribute on such a pleasantly warm day... Taste: tart, malty base with a moderate citric introduction; like a harder hefeweizen, but the malt is surprisingly displacing the wheat... Overall: had to wolf it down to prepare for the meal's beer accompaniment, but the fact is the beer was made for that purpose--little aftertaste or protestation from the Iron Arm...

A Belgian style ale brewed with large amounts of wheat malt and flavored with all natural orange peel, coriander, and cloves for a fruity/spicy twist on a refreshing and drinkable beer. Served with an orange slice on the glass and available year round at the brew pub.
