Description 

Brewed with Bergamot orange peel and coriander, Stone Dayfall Belgian White is quite possibly the finest beer ever created for drinking in the sunshine. While we may be known historically for our IPAs, our brewers have been brewing incredible Belgian-style beers for years, and they have a few Great American Beer Festival medals to show for them. This beer is brewed to be loved by Stone diehards as well as new fans who may prefer to stay away from double IPAs and imperial stouts.
Integrated aromas of orange, citrus, floral, spice, honey, along with subtle notes of grain/graham cracker. Flavor: Up front citrus including orange, lemon, and lime, with floral and a light herbal component. It's medium-bodied with a smooth, refreshing finish and lingering citrus.

Dayfall Belgian White by Stone Brewing Co. is being evaluated as a Witbier (Category 24A) from the 2015 BJCP Style Guidelines.

This beer pours an appropriate hazy gold with a white head that leaves a thin stand of fine bubbles on the beer. The aroma features a prominent citrus character up front with a focus on orange and a touch of lemon. As the citrus fades a light bready, and slightly doughy, wheat flavor emerges, along with a very light perfumy coriander. A hint of floral hop aroma develops as the beer opens up.

The flavor also features a moderate citrus character, which is mostly orange and light lemon peel. Medium bready wheat develops mid-palate along with light coriander, low hop bitterness and a hint of floral hop flavor. The Bergamot adds an interesting citrus layer to the beer, along with a light acidic kick. Light residual sweetness in the middle shifts into a medium-dry finish. This medium-bodied beer has a slight creaminess on the palate and high carbonation.

This is a refreshing and easy-drinking beer to be enjoyed as spring continues to develop. It is mostly citrus-forward but there is enough malt character, along with support from the coriander, to create a fairly balanced beer. This is not one you want to age, so drink it fresh.
