Bomber from Highland Wine & Liquor. I’ve had some trouble finding the information for the batch numbers for the Epic Denver brewery. I need to dig around their site some more. I wasn’t expecting a whole lot out of this one, as Epic’s Belgian beers seem to be hit or miss for me with a few more misses than hits. This, however turned out to be one of the best witbiers I have had. The pour is very light in color, very textbook for the style, with significant cloudiness in the body. The aroma is wheaty and grainy with just hints at orange peel and savory spice. The palate is pretty full, but not sticky. The grains come through nicely here, imparting raw wheaty flavor in a good way. There are suggestions of clove, light fruits, gentle citrus and a nice, drying finish. There aren’t any overbearing yeasty notes and no extra stickiness or sweetness, despite the somewhat higher alcohol content for the style. Honestly, this is quite a nice Belgian wit.

prawlie (1054) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle into a pint glass. Yellow and slightly cloudy, bubbly head that doens’t hang around long. Lovely citrus and spice wit aroma. Nice, smooth, wheat, light citrus, coriander. Very Hoegaarden, but perhaps a little more refined, and more spiced.

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy soft gold body with a fine white head and active effervescence. Strong coriander and wheat expression in the nose with a quieter orange peel note. Dandelion, bread and honey malt. The grains of paradise seem more like a generic spice or maybe like anise or some kind of aquavit herb mixture. Herbal and perfumy and soft and creamy and a little sweet and a little acidic and a little soapy.

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Bottle:   Dirty straw, very thick and hazy, moderate to large foamy white head, nice lacing.   Heavy spiced nose, lots of grains of paradise and coriander.   Spicy and spritzy on the tongue.   Wheaty, thankfully not all that mealy either.   Perhaps a touch at the very finish.   Much spicier and thicker than most.   That’s a nice change.   Strong spiciness, but not bright (if that makes sense).   Becomes more mealy as it warms.   More body than most.   Very respectable, and better than most that’s for sure.
