COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This re-release of our 2011 Collaborations Series No. 2 White IPA brings back the unique marriage of a classic Belgian wittier to an American IPA. We enjoyed the experience so much the first time around that we happily pressed Control+C (Command+C for Mac), and Reboot was born. Version 2.0 has upgraded its spicy aroma, with hints of bubblegum and clove. Bold flavors will launch upon uncorking, as sage and lemongrass balance the tangy, zesty wheat malt profile. Rather than merely blending a wittier with an IPA, Reboot harmonizes distinctly fruity Belgian yeast overtones with big, fruity American hop notes by creating an herbal bridge between these two somewhat contradictory flavors. The beer’s complexity os supported by a spritzy effervescence, finishing dry, with lingering hop notes.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - AUG 27, 2011
[Tap] Pours a cloudy shade of yellow with a firm pillow of dense white head. Sweet wheat and yeast in the nose followed by a dull citrus and spice character. Distinct hop bitterness in the taste comes off as herbal. Spice, grass, white pepper and mild funk in the taste. Nice palate and silky mouthfeel. Overall, I think that the IPA came out ahead of the Witbier in the flavor profile. It actually was pretty balanced though, which is usually a rarity with these blends.

undsioux7 (807) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Pours a cloudy deep yellow with a big white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, wheat and citrus hops. Taste is a both a nice mixture of wheat, grass and hops, but it also seems to muddle together. Its also a bit thick on the mouthfeel, so a refreshing wit on a hot day is not this.

drewbeerme (3879) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Bottle, pours a dull gold with white head. Nose is floral and herbal, mint and and lemon grass and a sharp cheddar. Flavors are a bit strong with herbs, coriander, lemon grass lingers along with white pepper while the hops impart a mild citrusy character and refreshing bitterness throughout. Good carbonation and body. Pretty tasty stuff really and I dont usually like a herb/spice forward beer. So their take on a hybrid wit/ipa is a more bitter wit, okay, it works very well because there’s an excellent wit reminding me there’s lots of room for wit variations. Wish this was a $10/4pk deal.

marcus (6781) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Bottle from Belmont Station. Pours cloudy golden with a pretty off-white head. This is a medium-bodied beer with a carbonated wheat flavor that lingers on the palate, and some very nice hopping. There is a spiced peppery finish. Refreshing and tasty.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2011
Bottle. Clear bright gold with nearly no carbonation and no head. aroma of coriander and apricot. Dry and spicy with light fruit tones. finishes with a weird musky sourness that is a touch offputting yet still inviting for another sip. Odd. Good. But odd.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2011
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy bright yellow with a large white, frothy, fizzy head. Aroma is similar to a Saison, bright fruit notes with citrus peel, lemon grass, some funk and subtle pine. Flavor is much the same with a tart bitterness that isn’t so aggressive with a bit of earth and faint lemon notes. Seems to have a light, soft body with fizzy carbonation. Overall, nice interesting brew!

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2011
750ml bottle. Hazy golden pour with a creamy white head. Aromas of coriander, orange peel, and grapefruit. Creamy mouthfeel with some bitterness and a peppery finish. This was a pretty tasty, well done experiment.
