The 6th experiment in the eXile series, X-6: Winter Warmer Wit, has escaped the lab and made its way to DuClaw Brewing Taps just in time to take that chill out of your bones!

This 6.4% ABV Wit is medium-bodied and pale orange in color with a persistent, rocky, white head. Effervescent citrus flavors and aromas dominate the palate, while the addition of coriander hand smoked with Retribution Bourbon Oak infuses the beer with subtle hints of smoke, creating a contrast and depth of flavor that takes the traditional Wit to a new dimension.
