Commercial Description

This beer pours with a voluminous white head from a high percentage of raw wheat. Aroma is of orange zest and orange blossoms combined with hints of saffron. The flavor is crisp, clean and dry with a supple tartness. A summer brew that is great year-round.
The beer you are holding is a different take on a White beer. We use a saison yeast strain to create a beer with citrus aromas and flavor. Like our Saison we use an extended secondary maturation and bottle conditioning to ensure all these unique qualities are preserved and evolve over time. Serve at 45°F in a tulip glass.

    [Best served in a Weizen glass]

    The pour was a murky pale yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white creamy head that reduced to a thin cap, which produced excellent sheets of lacing.

    The aroma was of a mild bread malt with a strong presence of a funky horse blanket Belgian yeast and had notes of citrus (lemon peel), coriander and some light fruity esters (banana and apple).

    The taste was rather yeasty with a mild hint of a fruit from the onset and finished with a strong wheat flavor that had notes of coriander and a mild citrus peel bitterness. The flavor lasted only a short while after the initial swallow with a nice spicy yeast taste that hung on a bit longer.

    Mouthfeel was light in body and somewhat watery in texture with a solid medium carbonation.

    Overall a fantastic Witbier that possessed a nice mild spicy citrus presence along with a light and enticing fruitiness. Simply enjoyable...

    Pours a cloudy yellowish-orange color with a very large white head that settles eventually into some nice lacing.
    A very slight wheat aroma with some orange citrus. The spicy notes seemed to be dominated by pepper.
    The flavor is orange citrus with a little lemon, backed with a ginger, coriander, pepper spiciness. Just a little bit tart at the finish.
    Medium to full bodied with strong carbonation.
    A very pleasant example of the Witbier style in my book.
