3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask at Birreria. This was far more complex than most witbiers I’ve had. Poured a light orange, little to no head. Cardamom and some citrus round out the traditional wit flavors. It starts nice, and finishes better. Super smooth. Definitely a nice, refreshing brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Cask at The Birreria at Eataly, 9/4/11
Aroma: The nose has components of pepper, orange, wheat, spice, and just a hint of honey
Appearance: It pours a golden-orange color with a lasting white head atop it
Flavor: Tastes wheaty, with a touch of pepper/spice, its mildly sweet, with a touch of citrus
Palate: The body is light, with a soft carbonation, and a finish that lingers on the mouth for a while
This was some solid stuff. I thought the peppercorns were a very interesting addition to a Wit that come out more in the nose then in the flavor. It did make the beer a little more interesting then a typical Belgian White. I generally enjoy cask offerings, but have mixed feelings about how the cask treatment worked here. Part of me thinks it helped the beer, and part of me thinks it hurt the beer. I’d like to see a draft version for comparison sake (but I don’t think I’d pay another $10 bucks to try the draft version!)
