Description:"A truly authentic Belgian style wheat or 'white' ale, this Rascal is unfiltered (yup, that's yeast on the bottom) and cleverly spiced with coriander and Curacao orange peel producing a refreshingly fruity thirst quencher." — Avery Brewing Co.
The tasting: Pale gold, hazy, with a white head that dissipated slowly. Spicy aroma full of coriander, clove, and yeast. The same spices were present in flavor, in addition to orange peel, lemon, and black pepper. The wheat gave it a slight tartness that meshed nicely with the spices. It had very little bitterness and only a hint of alcohol was noticeable in flavor. White Rascal was light bodied, had medium carbonation, and a silky smooth mouth feel. It finished dry and spicy. Very drinkable.
Rating: 4 star. Really Good! I want this again! I haven't tasted many beers of this style, but I liked it. I'd liken it to a less aggressive version of a Belgian Golden Ale (in terms of alcohol and intensity of flavor). It's light, refreshing, and a great beer for summer. If you're new to the style, give it a try!
Have you tried White Rascal or any other Belgian White Ales?
