Disappointed
Got the mini-mash. came out amber in color not gold. I did not filter out the orange peel - perhaps this is why? In any case, not the best in terms of color. flavor was average. Body didn't really remind me of a good wit.

Great Beer! Give it about 6 weeks from brew to really shine.

Being my first time ever brewing beer, I was concerned with how this (extract brew) would come out. Imagine my surprise when I found my first batch to be fantastic! After 1 week in primary and 1 in secondary, I put it into my keg and three days later sampled it. Wow! My father tried it during a Sunday football BBQ, and after he finished it he said it was good. When I asked if he wanted another, he passed in favor for a bottle of Leinenkugel Honey Wheat. Half way through his glass he told me that my beer was better! I also used some of the beer for a marinade for some rib eyes and it was fantastic. At band practice, the guys in my group couldn't keep their mitts off of the tap...even my guitar player who turns his nose up to anything that doesn't say Yuengling or Michelob. He raved about it. I am very pleased indeed!

This is a follow up to my original review. This beer has turned out to be excellent. It's very tasty and blows the doors off of Blue Moon. It was a huge hit at my birthday party. When people are on their third one, you know they aren't just being polite to the newbie brewer. I received very positive feedback from everyone that tried it. In fact, a number of people brought their own beer and didn't touch any of it. I went through almost the whole batch at the party. I had to stash some to keep all of it from disappearing. I want to compare it to the second batch in the hopes of acheiving consistency. I live in Austin where lately it's warm to hot for most of the year. This is a great warm weather beer. It will be in regular rotation from now on.

I have tried Blue Moon before and thought it was awful. This is what Blue Moon should taste like. I brewed the AG version and fermented on the low temp range with Wyeast Belgian Witbier 3944. I made a starter with stir plate, pitched at 65° and kept it at 64° for three weeks then bottled. I tested a bottle after one week and it was ready to drink. It was very good and didn't taste green. My beer critic buddy loved it. The Coriander tasted fresh and I didn't get that V8 taste like I get with BM. It finished with a nice tart orange feel on my tongue. I am going to brew this again as soon as I get half way through this batch. I plan on keeping this one around at all times.

This was my third batch as a homebrewer. I used the mini-mash kit with LME and the recommended WLP400 Belgian Wit yeast . I brewed on March 31 2012 and bottled 3 weeks later. Based on other comments, I skipped the secondary this time and went straight from the primary to the bottling bucket. I brewed this beer to be able to serve at my birtdhday party at the end May. I took special care to control the temperatures during the mini-mash and initial fermetation stages. I kept the temp at 68 degrees the first 4 days in the primary and then let it rise to 72 for the next 2.5 weeks. I think it's my best batch so far. The OG/FG were dead on with the recipe. This beer turned out very tasty. I actually drank a glass at room temp with no carbonation while I was bottling and enjoyed it. I compared it side by side with Blue Moon. It's actually lghter in color and less sweet. I can't wait until it carbs up and I chill one down. This should be a great warm weather beer.

My first kegged beer: I actually ground up the coriander, in a pepper grinder, crushed up the orage with a hammer. Dunno if that's what I was supposed to do, but let's just say, the entire keg was gone in 4 days. Un. Real. The BEST part is, my hunny loved it so much, she actually wants me to buy more kits! YAY! "He stand at the plate. The 0-0 pitch. *crack* Wow! Look at that fly! A home-run for the rookie in Blacksburg!" I was also told, it looks like Blue M**n, but better!

I am a new brewer and this Belgian White was my second brew ever. I brewed the mini mash version with liquid extract. I left this in my primary for almost 5 weeks and left it in the bottle almost 4 weeks. Tonight was the big night and I tried this beer with a little trepidaton since my first brewing attempt was not very good. Let me tell you, this is really delicious. It has a fairly light cloloration and pretty good head using the entire packet of priming sugar that comes with the kit. My beer fermented at a pretty steady 62 to 65 degrees the entire time and the bottled product also sat at the same temperature. This beer is delightfully smooth and came out with no off flavors whatsoever. I love this beer! I strongly recommend it if you want a smooth, easy to drink ale.

Brewed this on 11/30/11 and I'm drinking one on 1/25/12 and the results are fantastic. I did the Mini-Mash w. Dry Malt Extract and Wyeast 3944. The coriander and orange peel definitly bring out the flavor and if I had to compare this to a commercial brew, I'd say its closer to Hoegaarden than to Allagash White or Blue Moon. The coriander comes whole and if I did this brew again I'd start crushing the coriander at the beginning of the boil as it takes a little time. I used a garlic press to crush the coriander. I gave some of this to a family member and beer connoisseur who mostly drinks IPA's and even though it wasn't their thing, they liked this and said it was true to the style. I would definitely not hesitate to order this kit again, especially for the summer.

Initially this beer was almost undrinkable (too much bitter coriander), but now after 8 weeks of aging its one of the best batches I've made (coriander has mellowed significantly), and it continues to get better. Coriander initially overpowered everything, but now it has mellowed significantly and tastes wonderful. Beautiful golden color, medium head retention, coriander/citrus flavors present but not overpowering - very easy to drink. Everyone loves it now, saying it tastes better than Hoegaarden. Brewed DME kit with White Labs yeast. Lightly toasted the coriander seeds before pitching (maybe this is why the coriander was so strong initially) but didn't crack them. Didn't filter wort (left coriander/citrus in) when pouring to primary. Fermented in primary for 3.5 weeks (FG of 1.012, 5.1%ABV, hit at 12 days), no secondary. Bottle conditioned half, kegged half. Didn't cool wort fast enough and beer developed pretty bad chill haze (crystal clear at room temp, foggy when refrigerated). With 1+ months of aging I found this to be a really terrific beer. Anyone who likes Blue Moon / Hoegaarden will like this.
