COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
HEYDAY is an eminently pleasant Belgian-Style White Ale. Brewed with barley, oats and raw wheat, Heyday is uniquely flavorful for such an easy-drinking ale. With a slightly cloudy appearance and traditional yeast, it is a balanced, agreeable offering. Exuding mild hop bitterness and a nuanced body, this is the easiest decision you’ll make all day.

Finally tackled this one on tap at a beer tasting. I ended up tasting it over and over. Exceptionally smooth, great summer brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Single from total wine. Bordering on Pilsner and very light fruit and wheat flavor for a whit beer. Light yellow color. Light toasty corn aroma. Roasty grain flavor again. Finish is a little fruity. Light citrus.

Bottle pour. Pours a mostly clear yellow with a white head of foam. Not much retention. The aroma is light and bready with a bit of honey coming through. The taste is sweet, but remains mostly neutral. Light in body. A touch of spice comes through faintly toward the finish. Medium carbonation.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Dry and somewhat bitter. A lemon aftertaste was noted. Not for me but my wife loved it.

chinchill (1964) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 7, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2014 12 oz bottle; bottled on 24 June 2014. Pours a very pale gold color, slightly hazy with a modest sized but durable head. Aroma: fruity and yeasty; not bad but unappealing, as is often the case with this style. Flavor: mild; fruity and yeasty with some banana and clove. Light body with medium carbonation. Smooth but a bit watery.

crossovert (7588) - Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2014
355ml bottle. Hazed golden pour. Smell is farty citrus, literally like a bathroom with some citrus scent sprayed around. Flavor is metallic, creamy, citrus. Tastes like an animal trough with poo mixed with food and rainwater. Pretty damn bad brew.

"Bottled as Heyday wit. Nice n crisp. Distinct from other wits with the malt and yeast used. Really nice flowery citrus notes and light spice on the nose. Light, dry feel. Very refreshing and better than a lot of wits."
