COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Ale is our take on a classic Belgian Wit Beer. To make this beer unique, we add un-malted wheat, rolled oats, two varieties of classic European hops, chamomile, curacao orange peel, coriander, grains of paradise, and a rare yeast strain from the Old Country. This is a beer that can be enjoyed year round. Cheers!

This is some strange business. It is not a witbier at all, even though Crazy Mountain paid attention to details most people ignore like actually using unmalted wheat. However, the spice is all kinds of different. There is a big list of stuff on the side of the can but what I get out of this mostly is a sort of mellow cinnamon warmth, perhaps it is the chamomile. It is interesting an interesting sort of flavor for something I think of as a light, refreshing style but its pretty tasty.

355ml can. Golden color, large head. Smell is lemony, some chamomile. Flavor is lemony again, lemon curd, dry cracker, this is actually a pleasant surprise.

Can. Pours hazy golden yellow with a thin white head. Light wheaty base, chamomile, soft lemony citric notes, and mild sweetness. Not bad.

Weird taste of apples and lemon. Appearance looks very appealing but falls short with a wheat beer with some core and of spice taste

12 ounce can
A random can picked up on a whim provides a pleasant experience worthy of a lawnmower beer or the next camping trip. I doubt I will grab the other Crazy Mountain beers any time soon but this offered a nice chance to transition to the bigger winter beers.

Aroma / Appearance - A golden base with crisp snowy head shines with life. Lemon buttered scones, wheat, and light citrus give this a smooth low key profile. Honey wraps up the experience nicely.

Flavor / Palate - Spicy wheat, lemons, and honey brighten the palate. The result after a few sips is a mild impression that sticks in the throat like light fog. A crisp wheat falls squarely in the middle of the pack. If you find one on sale for $1.99 or less it might be worthy of a tick.

Barreras (1055) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Pours an opaque yellow with a slight fruit aroma. Taste is hay, apricot and a bit earthy. Clean, crisp and refreshing with an easy finish. A nice light witbier with little complexity.

"Would be a pretty standard boring wit if not for the very nice addition of camomile. I admit Im a sucker for this flowery goodness, so Im probably scoring a bit high, but so be it :)"

superspak (2840) - Michigan, USA - AUG 18, 2014
12 ounce can into pint glass, no can dating. Pours hazy bright gold color with a 1 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, orange peel, coriander, chamomile, pepper, clove, wheat, bread, oats, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, pear, apple, orange peel, coriander, chamomile, pepper, clove, wheat, oats, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, orange peel, coriander, chamomile, pepper, clove, wheat, bread, oats, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant flavors with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt notes; with very solid robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. No watery feeling at all in the flavors. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice and pleasant witbier. All around good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

weihenweizen (1882) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Refrigerated 12 oz. aluminum can poured into a weizen glass. Very slightly hazy golden with very small white head. Aroma is chamomile, light body, medium carbonation, and some medium bubble lacing. Taste is chamomile, some coriander, some green apple, and hints of orange peel. Easy to drink, different, but very little richness.

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Draft sample. Hazy yellow pour. Aroma is apples, spice, cinnamon. Taste is like cinnamon apple sauce. Just lots of green apple in this one. Makes it slightly tart. Fairly crisp and refreshing. But not what Id expect from the style.
