"It all started with our brewmaster, Keith Villa, wanting to craft a beer inspired by the flavorful Belgian Wits he enjoyed while studying brewing in Belgium. Will appear cloudy because it's unfiltered for more depth of flavor. You'll notice a zesty orange fruitiness with a light spicy wheat aroma. The flavor starts crisp and tangy and ends with a coriander and orange spiciness. The Valencia orange peel gives a subtle sweetness to the beer. The oats give the beer a nice creamy body, so it's not too thin. Our Belgian White has a slow finish of coriander and orange spiciness." —brewer
"Hazy apricot color; pours with a significant head that subsides fast and leaves no lacing. Prominent orange aromas with hints of coriander and cardamom. Medium-full in the mouth with orange rind backed by hints of banana, brioche and subtle hops. Good carbonation and strong malt flavoring; somewhat sweeter than typical, but very satisfying." —Lauren Buzzeo, Wine Enthusiast Magazine

"Appearance: Pale cloudy orange with a creamy tiny bubbled lace, vague citrus peel hits the nose with a soft bluntness also.

"Smell: Soft lemony fermented wheat twang, hint of coriander with a powdery yeast undertone in the aroma.

"Taste: Moderate body, smooth and creamy with a light malt crispness which mostly comes from the wheat. Big burst of sweetness at first from the malt and coriander, hops are distant and let the spices be dominant throughout. A very well-manufactured texture makes up for the loss in depth of the vague spices other than coriander. Hints of citric peel and light peppercorns find their way to the taste buds. Neutral powdery yeast creeps it way to the flavour threshold. Crisp wheat is very refreshing and seems to linger for ever and evolves into an increasingly crisp and semi dry finish.

"Notes: Somewhat sweeter and softer than other Belgian Style White Ales, not bad at all but does lack some depth. " —Jason Alström, BeerAdvocate
