COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Keg & Bottled; Special - originally released on 2 January 2013.

Atlantic White blends the tradition of Belgian ’Wit’ beers and the hop character of American IPAs to produce a ’White IPA’. Brewed with wheat malt and Belgian wit yeast , the addition of freshly crushed coriander seeds, Curacao orange and US hops give a light refreshing beer with a zest and spicy finish.

minutemat (881) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2014
330ml bottle. Wouldn’t necessarily have labelled this a wit on a blind tasting, has some prominent orangey elements and some bold hop flavours, the wit yeast really lying low in the background. Interesting but a slightly confused taste.

Rune (7348) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2013
One-third pint by cask at GBBF 2013, first day. Lasting white head over a hazy, golden body. Wheat and spiced fruity nose. Late banana in the flavour profile joined by lightly spiced fruits. Dry ending, on the sweet side. Medium bodied. Has got its moments of joyful drinking. Fine version of the style (London Olympia 13.08.2013).
