3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
This well-balanced Witbier introduces the citrusy character of Cascade hops to the gentle spiciness of coriander seeds and orange peel, all in a slender and bubbly mouthfeel fit for summer afternoon idling.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A thick head of foam covers the misty straw yellow.
-Yeast did not appear as much in the flavor profile as it does in their other wheat beers.
-The finish is a slow fading of the flavor profile, with a touch of hop bitterness.
-I just felt like pounding this one.
On tap at Dieu du Ciel!

Pint at DDC. Pours a mostly clear- almost too clear for a wit- massive sticky white head. Aroma is citrus, cascade, light steel and earth with a typical fruity yeast ester found in many wits phenolic and nicely spicy. Flavor is a bit too refined- body is a bit lower than expected, clean crisp more pils and bready,, than creamy and wheat, still has phenolics, spice, lemon zest, cascade citrus, floral and light soap. Clean and pretty refreshing in the finish. Nice beer.
