Avery White Rascal Belgian White Ale

Avery White Rascal Belgian White Ale, another member of Avery Brewing’s canned line, poured a slightly hazy pale yellow with a very short lived, small white head.  The nose was very faint, and carried forward wheat, coriander, and yeast.

Avery White Rascal Belgian White Ale opened flat and watery with very light noble hops and candied orange flavors standing out. The ale darkened a bit as it mellowed out and the wheat and coriander came through.  White Rascal ended extremely dry, with white pepper and yeast end capping the experience.

Avery White Rascal Belgian White Ale is an ok beer with a well balanced malt/hop/yeast profile that seems too weak as a whole.  The ale should be commended for the restraint shown in the added flavoring ingredients and a particularly intriguing subtle use of hops, but is ultimately a bit too light in flavor and body, even for light beer.
