COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This traditional White Ale is faithful to the Belgian style with its light body, cloudy color and touch of spice. A complex, refreshing ale thatís perfect for any season.

EtTuCthulhu (1390) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - APR 17, 2013
The color of this beer is hazy golden with a very small white head, and the aroma is mostly comprised of wheat with a slight citrus undertone. The taste is mildly sour and slightly sweet, and the palate combines a soft carbonation, medium body, thick texture, and a long finish.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 15, 2013
Usual wheat aroma, not getting much spice. Looks orange and not cloudy, much more like a standard blond ale than a wit. Tangy citrus flavor, mild sweet spice. Body is zesty while flush and not dry. Tends more towards what is sometimes called BPA, so not the best example of a wit.

Bottle. Pours a golden orange color with white head. Yeasty, spicy, malty, citrus aromas. Malty, yeasty, orange flavors. Slight metallic taste. Not bad, but not too great.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Bottle:   Straw, hazy, and not pale in color, small sudsy white head, little lacing.   Could stand to be lighter/whiter.   Wheaty nose, slightly mealy, not getting much if any in terms of spices.   Smells like a standard American Wheat.   Mealy on the tongue, also a bit wheaty, but void of any tunnel that guides you to something spicy.   Even as a plain ol American Wheat its lacking a bit of fortitude.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Boring finish, a bit mealy and wheaty.   This one was simply void of anything Wit like.   Very very very pedestrian and boring.   Not bad, but lacking for what it should be for the style. <p.

Pouring at Belgian Beer Fest. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Soft musk, light wheat. Medium bodied, heavy carbonation. Chewy wheat, but then it empties out. Musk, soft coriander, wheat, long musky bitterness.

Been drinking a lot of Belgians lately including my homebrew. This doesnít taste like a Belgian to me. Itís been a while since Iíve had Anchor Steam, but it reminds me of that. Oh well. Cheap bombers are fun to try.

I had not heard of Cathedral Square before stopping at a store in the Saint Louis area. I figured that it was low risk and could be solid. While not a great wit it has enough flavor to make me think about checking out the brewery again if I am in the area.

Aroma / Appearance - The golden carbonated base bubbles underneath a brisk white head. Green apples, cotton candy, and yeast are robust. The ephemeral aromas are like walking along a well traveled grassy path through a field.

Flavor / Palate - White pepper bites at the palate almost immediately. Carbonation, yeast, sourdough, and lemon zest tickle the back of the throat before a tangy finish. A bit spicy for a wit this has a waxy finish that I find myself indifferent about. While not a bad release it just has a predictable feel that gets boring after the first pint.

White. Very thin white head. Nice spice. Brownish copper. Low ibu. Lower alcohol then expected.
