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 that’s perfect for any season.

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.

It poured a pale golden color. The aroma was of yeast, citrus and some spices. The flavor was citrus, spices, and some grain. A decent belgian white beer.

22oz bottle from Pick’s poured into a shaker. This bottle almost exploded when I popped the cap. It sounded like I was opening a bottle of champagne. Pours a cloudy burnt orange with a small bit of bright white head. Aroma of citrus and wheat. Taste is lightly sweet and lightly sour. Some nice citrus notes in there. Medium bodied with a creamy yet sticky texture. Very fizzy carbonation with a long finish. Overall, not too bad. I would definitely drink it again for the $3 price tag.

Indra (2656) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 17, 2010
22oz. bottle, contract brewed at Weston Brewing Co. Spicy, sweet aroma, full of coriander and citrus, with lighter notes of orange, clove, wheat malt, doughy yeast, honey and faint must. Thoroughly solid medium golden orange in color with a lasting, fine head and sparse lacing. Flavor is likewise citric and spicy, only lightly malty, with a certain tartness detected early and light-moderate bitterness, finishing sharply and fairly clean with a gentle yeast bite. A faint herbal flavor appears late. Thin and lightly acidic on the palate with a low-moderate amount of carbonation and a light body. Nice and refreshing on a warm day such as today.

Tasted 3/10/10. 22oz bomber. First pour is hazy with an orange honey hue. Swirling white head. Aromas of oranges and chalky perfume. Touch honey and white pepper. Corriander and an underlying tea-like note. Medium bodied and very true to style. Good effervescence and carbonation. Bright and fresh. Good orange and citrus note. Modest spice flavors. Lingering sticky finish. Solid interpretation. Good body and a solid palate. Well done.

Scrapersnbeer (1491) - 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.

beernbourbon (1326) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 22, 2011
Pour is a slightly hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is a little thin but notes of lemon, light malt, faint spice, and a light chamomile note. Flavor is also a touch thin, but notes of lemon, orange, light spice, and faint yeast are most notable.
