COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This clean, unfiltered and easy to drink wit uses a Belgian Ardennes yeast strain to build a subtle fruity foundation on which to layer a blend of traditional and non-traditional wit beer ingredients. The hops and citrus peel play well with the spice character from various peppercorns and grains of paradise. This wit features a crisp mouth feel and lingering mellow flavors. The White Raven aims to bring in the spring, even if it is just in a glass.

Draught @ Brouwer’s Café:   Very pale straw, cloudy, thin to moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Soft citrusy nose, moreso spiced like coriander and grains of paradise.   Similar tongue, wheaty, clean, a bit hefty too.   Not as light as other examples, but that’s just fine.   Big lemon aspect towards the exit, a little artificial at times.   More spicy than most, but also a little medicinal in its approach as its sometimes a bit too fragrant in that candle sense.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes wheaty, spicy, and generaly pleasing for a nice warm spring day.   No substitute for most Belgians, but otherwise fairly tastefully done for an American example.

Draft at ebp. Pours a cloudy and very pale gold with a dense and fizzy white head. Loose stringy white lace. Big lemon and clove nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Lemon and clove on the mid palate with a nice lightly spiced finish. Great body and very flavorful...good wit.
