COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
FiftyFifty’s "Wit" beer, Foggy Goggle is a Belgian Style Wheat Beer, cousin of the German Hefeweizen. An unfiltered beer, Foggy Goggle is brewed true to style, using a yeast strain that originated in Belgium, with just a hint of orange peel, lemon peel, and chamomile. The appearance is an opaque yellow with a wonderfully fluffy head. The predominant aroma is citrus with a hint of coriander, and a unique spicy note. With citrus playing a big part of the flavor, Foggy Goggle is a very refreshing choice.

At the Yokohama Brewer’s Cup, on tap. It poured a cloudy gold with a small head of foam. The flavor was a nice malty base with a bit of belgianesque spicy notes. Decent.

On tap at Capone’s. Poured a cloudy yellow color with a smaller sized head. Aromas of citrus, citrus peels and lots of spice with some earthiness. Tastes of the same. Just something about that spice aroma I didn’t care for.

At the brewpub, with a sampler, pale, cloudy, yellow with minimal white head. Very nice fruity nose with hints of spices. Taste was a bit on the sweet side with a nice clean finish.

AgentSteve (1614) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - DEC 7, 2010
Pours a foggy (duh) pale golden with a finger thick white head. Full nose with flowers, spice, citrus. Same in the flavor with the flowers and chamomile standing out most. Nice orange sweetness as well.

kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - NOV 25, 2010
Draft @ 50/50. Pours a murky, tarnished yellow-brown color; fine-bubbled off-white head with solid retention and lacing. Very prominent coriander spicing in the aroma, along with some creamy wheat notes and a modest hop character (citrus, minerals); solid, vibrant witbier aroma. Medium body; lively CO2; the coriander note figures prominently, almost like a spicy ginger addition, and really gives this witbier some life; notes of citrus, creamy wheat, hints of vanilla. Medium finish of toasty wheat, lingering citrus acidity; crisp and dry. Nicely handled spiciness.

GG (2039) - NorCal, California, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Spent the NYE weekend on a beer trip in the Sierra Nevada area and Fifty Fifty was my first stop and it started the weekend off on a nice note. On tap, the beer was a cloudy golden yellow body with a fluffy merengue white head. Aroma was citrusy and light spice. Flavor had a strong citrus note, light wheat, and floral/soapy. Sleepy time tea on the flavor, citrusy, and wheaty. Very nice, clean, and easy to drink.
