COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A slightly untraditional Belgian American Witte Beer created to bring everyone who drinks it a little bit of Ellicottville Winter Cheer. Made from Canadian Barley, American Wheat, and Oats With Corriander, Orange Peel, and Citrusy Lemon Grass Notes. A smooth mildly malty mouthfeel that is slightly creamy. The Good people of Ellicottville hope you enjoy this one and wish you a winter that is absolutely dreamy.

light bodied for the style, mediciny flavor, not worth too much thought. Buy something else.

The Witte is dark copper with a slight, quick dissipating white head. Some lemony citrus and spicy coriander aromas are distracted by an slight plastic overtone. The taste consists of a fairly comfortable, lightly sweet malt. It’s medium bodied, but with a low bitterness, fizzy carbonation, and a dry finish. A little muddled, but not all together misguided Witte. It works in that its both refreshing and more substantial than a Witte, which would make it ideal for a post-shovelling beer, if anything.

[4172-20111203] Tap. Light plastic yeast aroma. Clear, yellow body with no lasting head. Slight straw-like yeast flavour follows up with light plastic fruit notes. Light body. Fair, not bad but not memorable either. (5/2/5/3-/10) 2.5
