White Rascal

From the Avery Brewing Co. in Boulder, Colorado comes White Rascal, billed as a "Belgian-style white ale" and as an "ale brewed with spices". It comes in a 355mL can that features some kind of white and red demon. W.R. contains a reputable 5.6& alcohol. According to the can, this stuff is brewed with coriander and cura
-->çao orange peel.
It has a whitish, straw coloured hue and is pretty cloudy. The Rascal pours with a substantial white head. The orange peel really comes through in the aroma. This beer has a thin body and mouthfeel, but makes up for it with considerable flavour. As expected, it's amply spiced, but there is also lots of sweetness and a juicy citrus quality. The finish has pleasant, slightly bitter orange peel notes.

This is a pretty nice white ale. I found it to be a touch too sweet, but I certainly enjoyed it. Pretty decent strength, too.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
