COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
ABV 7.1% 16 IBU's. A swanky interpretation of a double strength wheat beer, fermented solely by champagne yeast. Notes of tart citrus and white grape soothe the pallet in this sparkling ale.

On tap, poured a light shade of orange gold. Barely any lace or head. Aromas are saison/wit bier notes, spicy grade school hand soap. Taste had some wheat characteristics but mostly ultra carbonated funky yeast, didnt get much grape flavor which was a slight letdown. Plus i wish there was more hops present.

Gold with no head. Muty, champagne-like yeast aroma. Moderately malty with a slight alcohol touch and defined yeast notes.

A yellow pour with a big head. It had a light spicy aroma. The flavor was mild with a hint of licorice and some Belgian spice. Finishes very dry and refreshing. A pour for the summer.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2011 Hazy yellow color light white head .... aroma of citrusy fruit, coriander and wheat ..... easy drinking medium bodied wit with taste of fruity yeast wheat and lively mouthfeel .... champagne yeast gives it some umph malty backbone light warming alcohol finish ... not a bad brew

On draft at Capones. Pours a cloudy amber with a medium sized white head. Aroma of banana, cloves, candied malt and sweetness. Taste is much the same as the aroma with hints of tea and alcohol.

11th October 2008. GABF. Cloudy gold beer. Sweeter than usual wheat beer flavours. Very dry palate. Nice flavour and a bit different.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2010 On tap at the brewpub. FYI: the late 09-10 batch was tinkered with so it’s different from previous batches. Served in a snifter. Pours light yellow with a finger of light head which never totally disappears. Smell is of funky lemons and grass. Mouth feel was very light with a touch of body and a lot of carbonation, just a tad too much so. Taste is of funk, pepper, grass, floral hops and is so, so good. It’s as if Duvel and a wit had a baby, this would be it. I really like wits and this one was well towards the best ones that I’ve had. It’s unbelievably drinkable with a good amount of alcohol and just the right amount of body. The champaigne yeast really does it for this one. Great job Dock Street!!!!

DocLock (7915) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2009
Draft at Craft Ale. Pours turbid dark straw, more toward gold than brown, with a 2-finger creamy off-white head and copious lacing. Nose is candi sugary malt, citrus, hops, white peppery, and floral notes. Definite Belgian aroma here. The flavor is citric, hoppy, more orangy than limey, with definite candi sugar and spicy/peppery undercurrents in the malt. Complex, but a tiny bit sweet and cloying as it warms. Purists may call this a hybrid style not worthy of wit designation, but I call it a very good beer at any rate.

egajdzis (5365) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2009
Poured a hazy golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of coriander, cardamom, lavender, toffee, citrus, some ginger, and toasted malts. Taste of coriander, ginger, citrus fruits, tart wheat, and honey, with a bit of alcohol in the finish.

TomDecapolis (4500) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAR 3, 2009
Tap at CAH. Pours a hazy golden with a medium bubbly white head that laced. Aroma of really nice Wit spices, citrus, lemongrass, wheat and cereal grains. Flavor of the same, kinds sweet.
