’Flavorful’ is dead on, Michael - this is a summer beer of a different order than their fluffier Belgian Amber. This one has some outrageous bitter and peppery edges, a strong citusy character, and almost enough body and malt backbone to stand up to all of this flavour. Some salt and sweet, too - it’s complex as all get out, as busy as the bees in the orchards this time of year. Can’t say I’m a huge fan yet, but I’ll be having more, to be sure. One thing that must be an inside joke is the label - two mailboxes in the morning sun?

I have loved every minute of finding new beers by these guys, just 15 miles away from me. They have some *very* solid offerings (Black Bier, Boffo Brown, Tres Blueberry), and a flop or two. Along comes this Belgian Wit, more in the big bold style of the Stone Vertical Epic and the Hitachino Nest than the classy, slightly understated Vuuve and John’s generations. This one is really orangey, with slight coriander and pepper, and a whole truckload of that bandagey smell that I have come to love. Flavorful, fair body, good appearance.
